Yesterday, I saw this:

I didn’t write down the tips from that New York Times Magazine article, but I have no regrets about that.

I remember that  the article said regret is the second most common human emotion.  I have no regrets about that, either.

I’ve linked to the same blog post about regrets three times in this post, and I have no regrets about that.

 

Here’s one way to have fewer regrets: decide not to have them.

Another way to have fewer regrets is to spend time with people you love.

I have no regrets about my other photos from yesterday.

Think seriously and think honestly  about how to have fewer regrets.

I have no regrets about finding and sharing this YouTube video about how to have fewer regrets:

 

One more way to have fewer regrets:  Express appreciation whenever you can.

  1. and i have no regrets about reading your blog )

  2. I have no regrets that I stopped to read your post, Ann, and to wish you Happy Holidays! 🎉

  3. no regrets here! I decided a long time ago not to have any. Make a decision, live with it and keep moving… 🙂

  4. Love and loved ones !

  5. Have a great day, Ann. I plan on it, too.

  6. I too decided long ago to not hold onto ‘regret’ — it kept limiting my joy! — though I might have regretted not leaving a message yesterday until I read your post! 🙂

  7. ❤️ love this post. And still laughing at: Here’s one way to have fewer regrets: decide not to have them. Genius. Happy holidays.

  8. I love this post too. Can’t do much — if anything — about the past, so there is nothing to regret. If you did something regretful, just vow never to do it again. That way you will have no regrets in the future.

  9. That bovine butter dish looks like it has no regrets. I am eating Godiva cocoa powder with a spoon and looking out the window at snow falling on cedar, and have no regrets about that. Happy December 27, Ann

  10. I regret mistakes but also see them as opportunities to learn. While a life with fewer regrets would be nice a life with no chances to learn is one I’d regret.

  11. Regrets are normal but even though I have had some in my life I don’t dwell on them can’t see the point

  12. No Regrets!

  13. Unfortunately I cannot totally identify with this lady:
