Regrets Removed

The  dark  sky  embraced  the  evening  signifying  an  end  to  another  day.  The  bitter,   cold  air  whistled  through  the  open  window,  blowing  its  way  through  the  room.  Goosebumps  ran  across  my  body,  raising  the  hair  on  my  arms.  I  shivered  as  the  sensations  travelled  down  my  spine.

The  small,  bleak  room  had  doubt  running  through  my  mind,  but  I  quickly  squashed  the  feeling  in  favour  of  happiness.

I   relaxed  in  the  most  comfortable  chair  I’d  ever  been  in  and  let  my  thoughts  wander.  Optimism  set  in  to   my  pensive  musings.  I  couldn’t  afford  to  live  a  life  of  ‘what  ifs’  and  regrets  when  time  was  moving  forward,  and  I,  backwards.

The  past  was  where  it  should  remain.  I  was  thankful  for  the  journey   I’d  taken  to  create  my  path  of  footprints  within  the  world.  It  hadn’t  been  easy,  the  road  I’d  travelled  had  more  than  a  few  bumps,  but  was  it  worth  it?

Completely.  I  wouldn’t  be  where  I  was  today  without  it.  Without  regrets  I  can  live  freely.

“Sometimes  you  just  have  to  stop  and  take  in  your  surroundings.  Really  look  at  where   you  are  in  life,  otherwise  it’s  just  going  to  pass  you  by.  Regret  is  a  heavy  word  to  live  with.”
–  Riley,  Nature’s  Destiny  (coming  2014)
