Honestly, I cant think of anything that I hold onto.
When this type of question is posed I think back to when I was 12 and didnt lock the main door while babysitting and the 2 yr old got out through their broken screen door and ended up in the street nearly being run over by a cop(of course he saw baby boy and stopped and took him to police station).
FREAKY experience and thankfully noone got into trouble and the parents didnt wig cuz they realized that at my age watching 5 kids while folding laundry and stuff....they should have fixed the screen.
But I have also realized I was young and made an error and learned from it.
I cant say that I regret anything as all of my choices have led me to where I am. Without some of the challenges, I wouldn't be the person I am today. I do regret NOT doing some things. As for letting go of sadness, Im still working on this one. Ive made peace with all of my own choices but I struggle with letting go of some choices made by others...
One step towards healing? All I can do right now is try to focus on being in the moment, living today. I cant change the past, and the future is not here yet. The only thing I can control is me, my choices, my reactions, and only today. Im working on letting go of the rest.
I have the same attitude to regret as you ladies and wouldnt want to be anywhere else than where I am now in life. I do have trouble letting go of grief though. I dont know the answer to that one either, other than time. I may have some remembrance time for my dad this Halloween with Daniel after Tasha's reading revealed I am unhealed from his death as yet.
