We continuously ponder over the events of the past and if we could have done something differently. This is human nature. However, realizing that regrets brings nothing in life but pain. We need to constantly remind ourselves of the power of the present. I wrote this poem as I was reminding myself of the fact. What do you regret most in your life? How would you remind yourself that life is in the NOW? Let me know your views in the comments below.
Life does not allow a U-turn to undo the things that are done regretting and pondering over past can only make the pain return However hard you try you find life only moves one way you cannot change a thing of past you only have this day Make the most of every second the next is just an illusion the present moment is all you have the future still under construction Lay the stone of future now for a stronger base and a future bright make the most of the present to take an extraordinary flight Do not regret what’s already gone delving over it just re-ignites the pain; learn the lesson and move ahead the future you need to sustain.
One thought on “Life is too short for Regrets”
By the time one reaches 40 years of age, we accumulate so may regrets that we waste rest of our years doing something that will give us zero return — regretting our past actions. It is critical to break away from this cycle and resume living.
