Something You Did That You Regret
Feb 14th, 2019 at 1:17am
 
    What do you regret doing?
   When I was nineteen I joined the army.  At the time I had a German Shepherd.  Schnitzel.  She was brilliant and I cared a great deal for her but I gave her away so I could enlist.  To this day it haunts me.

Trust me, I know how it sounds and if other people do it I roll my eyes but... I don't really have any regrets. Whenever I start thinking too much about things that have happened and can't be changed, I remember the fact that in around 5 billion years time the Sun is going to expand and utterly destroy the Earth. Everything on this planet, and the planet itself, is going to be blasted into deep space as radioactive dust. It'll be like God himself swatting a fly. Hard to regret things when you know that no matter what mistakes you make, they won't be remembered and even if, by some twisted miracle, one of your mistakes is still remembered 5 billion years from now, everyone's going to be a bit too busy to think about it.

Agreed. I smoked (and chewed toward the end) for about twenty years.  I quit about twenty eight years ago.  It's the best thing I ever did for myself.  I don't know how people can afford to smoke these days. It was expensive enough when I was smoking. It's astronomical now. The strangest thing is that most poor people smoke.  They can't afford decent food or a place to live but they have their tobacco.

I'm blessed to be mainly in Kick's camp. Even choices that didn't turn out as well as I'd like were fair choices at the time. Who I was then made a fair decision. I can't go back and judge myself when I made the best decision I could.

I do have a couple regrets though.

I wish I had learned discipline in highschool. I wish that I had put in the hours and work instead of just putting in what I had to.

I wish I had learned that you have to budget down time and recreation time. 1 hour of fun and 2 hours work is better than 3 hours of "work" that's halfheartedly done. I wasted so many hours doing things I didn't even enjoy instead of obeying the old "work while you work, play while you play"

But then that's just the old "Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test and then the lesson"

I might regret admitting to the things I regret Grin
Ok here’s one... I spent around $10,000 on a batch of custom backpack diaper bags that I couldn’t sell for a variety of reasons. It was an expensive education, but I’ll never need to buy myself a backpack ever again!
