Day 25 of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge-What Is My Biggest Regret?

What is my biggest regret?

None. Zip. Nada. I don't regret things I've done or been through. My belief system tells me that everything happens in the universe exactly as it should in that moment. That doesn't mean that I haven't learned from mistakes that I've made and hopefully won't repeat them in the next situation. That's growth. That's humility. That's being teachable. But I don't regret that they happened, because they are all a part of who make me into the woman I'm becoming. 

We are all human and as part of the human experience we are born malleable and open to new experiences. I feel like many things in my life that I could "regret" have shaped me and molded me. If you don't risk...you don't grow and the emotional growth I've experienced in my life has been significant. If I was never willing to risk my heart, sure...it never would have been broken, but I also wouldn't have ever loved fully. If I hadn't tried new things and failed, I never would have learned what I liked and what I didn't. 

Today I am evolving into someone who lives with more balance. I don't jump right into things without investigation but once I've done my due diligence I do take risks. At the same time, I have more acceptance about people and things in my life than I once did. People aren't perfect and I'm a people! If I can't be perfect myself, how can I expect perfection from others? All part of lessons that I've learned by making "mistakes". 

So just for today, my goal is to live my life in a way that won't cause anyone else or myself any undue harm and to grow from all that's given to me today. To love without expectations and to be open to all possibilities. And to love myself just as I am!
