How many times have we said something that we immediately realized

was not the right thing to say?

How many times do we look back on an event and think, "If only I had…"

How many times do we do something that we wish hadn’t done? 

I've learnt that

You can’t change what has been said.

You can’t change a past event.

You can’t change what has been done. 

So, do you drown yourself in regret, sorrow, repentance?

Do you think about what might have been?

Do you relive an event the way it should have been? 

Forget about regret, and focus.

Focus on today, not on the past.

Focus on what you can do now, not what you didn’t do then. 

The only thing to regret is living in the past

The only thing to feel sorrow for is not living each day to the fullest.

The only way to repent is to sincerely say, "I’m sorry".

Don’t live your life regretting yesterday.

Live your life fully, so when tomorrow comes, you won’t regret today.
