The Things You Don't Do

Friday, January 15, 2016

I like to live my life with no regrets, as I'm sure you do. 

But as I've gotten older I've realized that sometimes it's just not realistic. Most of us have something we wish we had or hadn't done, and while some things I regret doing, most of my regrets are things I ended up not doing, even though I wanted to. 

Anyone else like that? 

Senior year of high school my psychology teacher often told us something one of her professors had told her: 

You only regret the things in life you don't do.

If you're on the anxiety train with me I'm sure you're rolling your eyes right about now.....

Stay with me.

It doesn't have to be something monumental. Promise. It can be something as simple as changing up your style. Who knows? It might create a domino effect.

In 2016 I want to do more. Chalk it up to the recent celebrity deaths or the fact that my Grey's watch is giving me an existential crisis, (who does Shonda Rhimes think she is) but lately this phrase has been stuck in my head like a Justin Bieber song. (don't pretend you can't relate)

Life is long but it is so, so short. You won't regret what you don't do if you do it, even if you fail

ANYWAY, what are your thoughts on this?
