No regrets in life.  Just lessons learned.

Jennifer Aniston

March 31st - regret is a waste of time



Don’t waste your time in anger, regrets, worries and grudges. Life is too short to be unhappy.

Roy T. Bennett

If we focus on regrets, it changes nothing and the act of going over what happened and wishing things were different doesnt change what happened.  So it’s a waste of time.

We need to focus on the lesson and our feeling of regret will lessen.  I am responsible for my life and not anybody else.  Instead of making excuses, I need to take responsibility.

We need to learn from the lessons and go on working toward our goals, not wasting time on regrets.  Learn from the lesson and move on .  If there is nothing you can do to change the situation, let it go.

Everybody makes mistakes, they can be opportunities to learn important lessons so that you can learn how to take better care of yourself in the future. 


Accept your past without regret, handle your present with confidence and face your future without fear.

Your first paragraph sure hits close to home. Many a time I've been my own worst critic; it's time to let go and let God.

Over my decades, I spent too much time regretting and wishing I had done more differently.

Now I am looking at the decades I have, planning a heck of a rejoicing in life.
