Self affirmation

I keep telling myself to have no regrets. Say what you want to say. Don't regret that you never said what you wanted when you had the chance, when the moment was fresh.

Ken taught me one thing, patience. I will wait for long time for something I want, doesn't keep me from craving it.

I think back on things I have done in my life thus far and yes there are times I wish I had something differently. I wonder what my life would have been like if certain things hadn't happened. But the rules of entropy say that in this very moment, you are shaping the future. That movie you watch, that picture you download, that song you sing, that walk to the kitchen, it's all part of something bigger. I choose this path. With every breath, I make a choice. I could be twist my ankle, or accidently download a virus. Everything we do has an effect. Some effects make little nevermind to the daily lives we lead. Others impact long after the physical scars fade.

I want something. I want a lot of things. I will not get them by doing what I am doing. I will have to work, and use the precious bits of energy I would normally exhaust being lazy. My patience is wearing thin and my wants are exceedingly weighing me down.

I will not have regrets. I will do what I want. I will say what I want. I will get what I want.


I will not have regrets. I will do what I want. I will say what I want. I will get what I want.

I applaud you! Being determined and confident is a wonderful thing that many of us(me!!) lack.
I think was beautifully said. So introspective and thought provoking. Personally, no matter how much we say we don't regret, I think there will always be even the tiniest corner in the back of our mind that does regret some things....even if it's as small as that Big Mac for lunch or as large as not saying yes to that marriage proposal from the man of your dreams.

Meh. Whatever, I think you're courage to stick to such convictions is admirable and very well said. :x It reminds me of the end of the book The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle. She had lived her life without regret, and finally looking back on her existance, she did regret. It was so poetic.

But anywho, this was a lovely entry.
Letting go of regrets is amazing. Living with zero regret is hard, because so much in life passes us by, and what doesn't we often fuck up, but that's the way life works. Forcing yourself to keep a minimum of regret is good. Good for your stress and your mental well-being. As with so many things in life, it's all about the minimalism.
