Formerly 'Rambling with a cantankerous old mule"
I don’t have many regrets. I certainly don’t regret wearing my dark glasses as much as I do. I like dark glasses.
But I do regret not trying harder in my last year at high school and through university. I could have done better. I would go back and do it differently if I could. I can’t. And so I try to learn from my failings and do better. Now.
I regret allowing others to influence my mood. Like today at work. I regret losing my cool – allowing others’ pettiness and small-mindedness to affect me. I would take it back if I could, but I can’t. All I can do is go to work on Monday morning and give of my best; and hold no grudges.
I regret taking others’ negative opinions of my photographs too personally. Like where they tell me it’s weird that I take photos of children who are not my own… Michael Jackson and others like him did me no favours. Seriously.
I regret not having more fun; not getting more exercise; and not climbing more trees. But I have the power to change that.
That’s about it. What’s the point of living in the past, with regrets eating away at your soul? Live free. “Seize the day,” as the cliché goes. A most enjoyable weekend to you all. ツ
