Deep Regret

Do you ever feel deep regret about your past marriage?

Regret about what you did or didn’t do?

Regret about not being able to make it work?

Regret about a million and one things and the fear that it’s impacted your kids?

I totally get it.

Last week I had some of that deep regret come to the surface again. I’ve been worried about my kids for so many reasons. And I fear that their problems are all my fault.

If only I would have. If only I could have. If only I could go back in time 10 years, 15 years or 20 years and do that one thing different. It felt so heavy.

I know you feel this way too sometimes.

I’m still working to reconcile some of my regret and I’m allowing myself plenty of space to do it.

In the meantime, I’m reminding myself of a few things.

In every moment along the way, most of us do the best we can with where we are.

Sometimes our best, doesn’t look that great – and that’s okay.

My kid’s ability to achieve success and happiness in life is dependent on them – not me.

Our human weaknesses are supposed to be there, they are not a mistake.

I hope you can see the best in yourself in the past, and the best in yourself today.

I hope you can see the best in your future too.

Have a beautiful weekend- you deserve it!

Gifts

I love gifts.

And it’s my birthday this week too.

I love to give people gifts.  I love to gift myself.

Gifts are fun and thoughtful.  Gifts are a treat.

I didn’t used to gift myself at all.  I always went without.  I didn’t think having things I liked was a big deal to be honest.   I didn’t think my desires in life mattered much.

And one day, I started to realize- they did.  I started paying attention to what I liked and what I wanted.  I decided that I was worth paying a little attention to and that it was okay for me to do that.

The more I noticed what was important to me and what I liked… the more I found myself.  I started to have so many ideas for what I wanted in my future.  I started to come back to life after feeling a whole lot of nothing inside for a long time.

Will you give yourself the gift of paying attention to what matters to you?  I hope you will.
