    emoticon for the perspective - my only comment is what have I learned - sometimes this answer comes after I have experienced life - then move forward with new goals and objectives - live today to enjoy tomorrow! emoticon emoticon

    Wow, great words of wisdom.... You're absolutely correct. Spending too much time thinking about regrets is a total waste of energy.

    I regret not giving up regrets a long time ago. I focus on enjoying today and making tomorrow a better day for myself, my friends and my family.

    That is one of the hardest things I have to work on! Too often we spend too much time looking back playing the 'woulda, shoulda, coulda, but didnt' game.

  Great talk, don't waste what time we have on things that don't really matter. I almost lost my health over this very thing. Learning to let go was hard at first but has gotten easier everyday.

    What a wonderful blog! Great recommendation to let go of what never happened. Keeping my mind focused on what is good and meaningful in life lets joy into my heart.

    The only thing I can say is that even though you know that there is somethings that you can not grieve about from your past does not mean that you can focus on setting goals like running that marathon. ALL THAT i am saying is that don;t limit the potential possibibies that may come....sometimes positive visualization does go along way.

    This was so lovely! It helped me alot. I do grieve over crucial mistakes I have made in my life. These mistakes are so heartfelt, but I need to be strong and push past it and look at today's blessings.

I am not one to blame others, but I carry a heavy burden of responsibility that I need to lay down.

Thank you so much and you have a good weekend too!

I spend way too much time grieving over things that never happened or wish they had happened.
I too, am trying to let go.

  You always make me think John. I spend way too much time grieving over things that never happened as well as things I know never will happen ( like running a marathon). It's time to be more accepting and do the best I can with what I do have control over.
Thank you once again for a thoughtful VLOG. emoticon emoticon emoticon
