Life is a whole series of decisions. Choices that range from the mundane things that we sometimes do on auto-pilot, to the life altering, insomnia-causing resolutions. Whether or not what we choose is right or wrong may not always be apparent at first.
Everyone can probably think back to a decision they made that they have regretted. But why do we regret something that at the time seemed like a good idea? Things we usually regret doing may have either hurt yourself or someone else (emotionally or physically), or have caused you to miss out on moments or opportunities that will never come again.
In my opinion, there are no wrong decisions (unless of course it involves breaking laws of any kind). The things we regret doing or not doing may, in retrospect, seem inappropriate due to the aftermath that follows. But what’s done is done and history cannot be erased. Instead of dwelling on the guilt, regret, we have to reflect at what we’ve learned from the experience. Move on and try not to do it again.
Be confident in the decisions you make. The worst that can happen is that you will learn a valuable lesson. These lessons make us who we are.
Writing 101: Day 3
Prompts come in many different forms. Sometimes, a single word is all you need to get your mind’s wheels turning. Here are six words:
SECRETSelect one word in this list that speaks to you in some way. Have you always wanted to write about that wrong decision you made? Are you a long-term traveler looking for the right city to settle? Do you want to write a poem about your relationship?
The beauty of the one-word prompt is that it’s open to interpretation. What do you think of when you hear this word? What do you see? This word is simply the seed for your post: feel free to shape your idea as you see fit.
