Me in the Middle of #atozchallenge ~ Letter R


My theme for the A to Z Blog Challenge @AprilA2Z during the month of April is ~ My Life Is My Masterpiece ~ Lessons Learned


Clearly, there’s no going back and changing what happened or what I might have done differently in my life if I’d known what I know now after lessons learned.


No Regrets #2


Write Your Biggest Regret


It’s never too late to do some of the things you’d regret in the end not trying out.  I’ve come to the conclusion that we can only do the best we can with what we’ve got so get out there and do them…………….. and in the end you realize that ‘Old Blue Eyes’ had it right even though we might not choose his way.  Depending on our circumstances in life we can only work on ourselves and try to create a life that is our true selves.  I’m just grateful to have reached this time in my life where I can say, in my own way, I did it my way (and God was with me through it all).


My Way ~ Frank Sinatra

  1. Reblogged this on Me In The Middle and commented:

    The A to Z Blog Challenge 2017 is almost to the end! They’re up to Letter $ and I remember how great I felt last year when I reached this point. A real sense of achievement!

    Do I ‘regret’ not participating this year? ……. Yes …… And yet I know I wasn’t able to put out the same effort as I did last year. So ….. No Regrets! 🙂


    • Oh, me too, Katie! When I look at pictures, and they are still, I have to remember the reality of constant motion. I would just love to hug and hold them again though. 🙂


  2. Regrets are inevitable, regardless of the effort we put. There is always something that had to be foregone because of the decisions we make along the way.
    We can only hope that our regrets don’t cripple us down the road. You said it so well in your comment to Parul … it does tie in directly to letting go of the concept of perfectionism.

    Happy Friday! Hope your weekend is regret-free 🙂

    • True for me too, Kathleen. Now you’re older and wiser so it’s never too late! I like your imaginary friends! 🙂


  3. One regret I have is not inquiring about an internship at a publishing firm. That way I could have learned about what it takes to get published. Despite the regret, I am learning that it takes a lot of hard work, so I didn’t necessarily need an internship.

    The other thing I regret is writing a book when I was younger. I read about so many writers starting to write stories in high school and finishing drafts of novels in college. I do wish I had developed that drive in my younger years. But I learned that it’s not too late to make that idea into reality on the page. So, that’s what I’m striving for.

    • You and I both, GR! I worked at a book publishing firm when I was around 18-19. Too young to see an opportunity there. I wrote off and on too. Just wasn’t motivated enough. It’s never too late! 🙂

    • I went through phases of regrets and decided not to waste anymore precious time. So many things I can still try that I’ve always wanted to try. Thanks Ally! 🙂

    • Thankfully I got to that point and I’m doing what I can do rather than regretting what I didn’t. Life is short! 🙂


    • I guess it goes back to P is for Perfectionism. We’re never going to be perfect so having regrets is’t going to change that. Thanks Parul! 🙂
