Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

“Live life with no regrets”  How many times have I heard people telling me that.  I believe that to achieve having no regrets is extremely hard.  We all try to do everything that we believe is the right choice at that moment in time.  How many times have you looked back and reflected after the choice has been made and concluded that there were regrets?   The whole concept of having no regret is to look back, reflect and believe completely that if you had to relive it, you’d make that same choice again because it taught you something valuable and made you a better person.  How many of us can actually do that?

I know I try very hard to achieve it.  I give my all to everything and everyone and I’m learning to make decisions and choices that no matter what the result, I believe that its taught me in some way to improve physically or psychologically.

The picture below shows the new perfume that I bought and the philosophy that came on the box.   In case, its not clear, here is what it says: ” how you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain, and, so it is with life, which for many of us becomes one big gigantic test followed by one gigantic lesson….  Its how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness and the light.”

Everyone will have regrets some point in their life.  We have regrets because we’ve learned better from those “gigantic lessons” and from learning acceptance.  The idea of accepting what happens around and to us in different situations and dealing with all the good and bad situations in life gives up the experience to eventually learn how to live life with no regrets.

I know that I am slowly learning how to minimize the possibility of having regrets in my life.  My past regrets have taught me how to treat myself a bit better and deal better with present and future situations.

    • I bought this at Sephora. I spent a while in their perfume selection. They have a variety of perfumes with different philosophy. Its pretty interesting!
      Thanks for the comment!


      • That is interesting. I don’t buy perfume so it would have never occurred to me. But, now that I think of it, it makes sense. Scents evoke such powerful emotions in us, so too would they evoke ideas.
