Today is February 1st, and I just reviewed my goals for 2016 that I made on January 1st. And, guess what, I instantly became depressed. What should have been an uplifting exercise, turned into me chastising myself for not being proactive enough. So, it was very fortuitous that I saw this video just now. If you’re like me, and filled with a little bit of “What if I had…“, this video could be game changer for you. I was in tears by the end.
It really made me realize, that dispite the work I’ve been doing, I’m still living a little bit in the past. OK, OK, maybe a lot in the past.
What are all those regrets? Let’s just touch on a few that are pretty big for me. I regret not spending enough time with my mother before she passed away. I regret letting my step-mother become successful in creating a gap between my father and I. I regret not making to his hospital room at the moment he took his last breath. I regret working too much when I first started my careers and not spending time with family and friends. I regret not spending time with my nieces and nephews. I regret not riding my bike more, not finishing that children’s book I started 10 years ago, and the list goes on and on and on…
But today, I’m going to try and change that. Because today is a blank slate and I get to do anything that I want to, and that’s very exciting for me.
What are you going to do today?
