Five Minute Friday: REGRET no more

Today, I’m writing with the Five Minute Friday community writing group, and this week’s word is Regret.  If you’d like to join in, the linkup is here.

As humans, we all probably have borne our share of regret.  Regret that we weren’t able to spend more time with the people who meant something to us, regret that we allowed that horrible relationship to continue for as long as it did, regret that we held on to that grudge when it only hurt us and not the person we resented, regret that we didn’t start sooner on pursuing a dream.  The list could go on.  But what good is regret?  None!  Beating ourselves up over something we now have clarity on only shrouds us in shame.  God’s mercy and forgiveness is new every morning, like the sunrise.  Let’s believe it, accept it into our hearts, pick ourselves up, and simply start over.  Send that Thank you card.  Pick up the phone.  Start that hustle.  Say good-bye to that person for good.  Believe that while we are all fallible, you are loved unconditionally by the One who made you.

I got my first Diary when I was 10. I couldn't wait to write in it at night to divulge all of the details of my day onto paper with my turquoise pen. I now find that writing has become therapeutic for me. I need time to think and sort out what is going on inside and often when I'm most emotionally heightened is when I write most creatively. My years of journaling are a compilation of written out prayers as well as lamenting poems. Now as a wife and mother, my perspectives have changed, as I reflect on who I was and who God is making me to be.

    Thank you for the exhortation to do something (pick up the phone, mail the card, etc.)… it’s those little actions that mean so much and can prevent later feelings of regret.
