The List

I couldn't sleep the other afternoon (yes, my bedtime is in the afternoon), and my mind started to wander.

Don't ask me why, but I started making a mental list of regrets.

By the way, I never believe people who say they go through life without regrets.  Everyone makes mistakes.  Some, more than others.  Remorse is natural.

Perhaps I shouldn't have been, but I was shocked at the length of the list.

No, I'm not a bad person.  Average, I guess.

Most of the missteps involve me and only me, so there is some relief there.

I have no desire to go back and do things over.  What's done is done.  Some people deserved better from me-- and vice versa.  Especially vice versa.

Next time i can't sleep, I hope my mind wanders over to a list of good things.
