I used to be a big believer in having no regrets. I believe that each choice we makes lead us to where and who we are today. Honestly, I'm at a pretty good place, and my life is really good. My past experiences and choices, good and bad, have put me here.
Recently though, I've started to regret. Not my past, but my present, and even my future, which is silly since the future has yet to happen. I feel like I have been making poor choices that are going to mess up my children's lives, because, after all, today is shaping my children's pasts. I understand that this is negative thinking and I need to live in the moment, yet I want my children to look back on their pasts and see how good life was.
So, though I am grateful for my past, I'm struggling with my present. My hope is that I can look back on this time in my life and see it without regret, but see it as a bump in the road that made my family stronger.
