Imagine yourself in a world where that one big regret could be changed. It never happened and in this moment right now, it could happen all over again. A big decision about school, family, friends – any life choice you can think of. Would you take that chance to change your current life? Is that one big regret defining who you are today? Think about it.
I do it myself a lot of the time. I’m not one of those people that says I have no regrets because, let me tell you, I have plenty. Decisions I made about lying, about choosing friends, about school, about my majors, about trying things I shouldn’t have or not trying things I should have… literally about everything. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy life. I stand by my decisions for the most part but, there’s always one nagging thing on the back of my mind before I go to bed. It will be different on different days but, one regret always crops up.
Maybe I dwell on them. These decisions that I think shaped who I am today. To be honest, I couldn’t even tell you if my decisions shaped who I am today. I don’t really know what shapes who we are. I guess a little bit of everyone and everything that happens in our lives constantly changes us but, there isn’t one big thing that I could pinpoint.
I digress. Just imagine living in the same world you are now except you can change that one thing. You can make a different decision. Would you do it? I think I might.
