There are things in my life that I have regretted doing.
There are things in my life I have regretted saying.
Sometimes these regrets lay heavy in my heart for long periods of time and yes… sometimes I wish I could take them back.
But I have learned from these regrets.
I cherish these mistakes as much as I cherish the right decisions I feel I have made.
Because my regrets remind me of how I want to live my life today.
I cannot take back a harsh word… and unkind action… but I can be reminded through the burden of my regrets… and choose to be a better person in my words and actions today.
“Dear God, help me to choose wisely my words and actions. Help me to live life as a kind, compassionate human being.”
