What Is Your Biggest Regret

Webster’s defines regret as feeling sorrowful or having remorse for an act, fault, disappointment etc.   A sense of loss, disappointment, dissatisfaction.   You see that disappointment seems to be the main focus here.  So what do you regret? or what has been a disappointment to you? I suppose is the question of this blog post.

I think that we have disappointments every day.  I don’t necessarily think they would always be considered  regrets.  Especially if the disappointment turned out to be something good in the long run and we just couldn’t see it at the time it was happening.


I can’t say I have a lot of regrets.  I am stumped to come up with something that would be my biggest regret.  I always wished I had gotten more education or learned different things.  I can’t really call that a regret because I may still do that.  I wish I had learned to play another musical instrument but again I still can.

I do regret not spending time with my nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews when they were younger.  I always loved being around them and seeing the world through their eyes.  They were growing up at a time when I was younger and busier and just didn’t make the time for them that I should have. So yes, time is something you can never get back, and moments only happen once. Choose wisely.

What regrets do you have?  Any you would like to share?

Always remember

Love your day your way!!!

  1. Life is filled with lessons learned from mistakes, and definitely I would have made some different decisions but can’t live life in the rear view mirror they say. At my age, 61, I have lots of life experience as they say. If someone asked though I would give out only one suggestion at a time. My first would be to honor your parents by communicating with them daily or nearly so. I regret I did not spend more time talking to my Mom and it was the only thing she wanted from me.
