Regrets

I recently read a book by a very famous man.  Thousands of people admire and respect him.  At the end of the book, he said he had no regrets about how he lived his life.  That kind of made me sad.

I want to look back at my past and have regrets.  Yes, I want regrets. 

Regret means I no longer believe or behave as I did.  It means I’ve grown.  It means that I have matured.  It means I’m getting better.

  1. hmmm this has me thinking… I don’t know how it’s possible to live without looking back on some things with regret. I mean, just regretting the times I’m lost my temper… What would life have to look like for me to have no regrets??? Can’t even imagine it – well, unless I was Jesus…

    Right or wrong, I have them…and I don’t always have to look back very far either. If someone feels compelled to say they don’t have regrets, I tend to wonder what’s buried down there that they just can’t bear to consider out loud.
