Moments of Regret.
There are a handful of moments in everyones life in which they wish they can take back and change. Moments of regret that you wish you were able to do something differently or say something differently to prevent the misery comes soon after. It’s hard not to imagine what life would be like if it was easy to just erase a moment that caused you such pain and sadness as if it was just an ugly picture you can tear up and throw away.
What moment of regret would you want to change? Would you prevent yourself from meeting someone who ended up shattering your heart in a million pieces? Would stop yourself from allowing stubbornness be the cause of people forever walking out of your life? Would you change yourself from fighting with a family or a friend? Would you try to stop yourself from embarrassing yourself or to try to find a way to make sure you would become a different person you grew into? Would you change everything you could so you can end up so much happier than you are now?
A handful of moments, that you wish you could change. To prevent those nightmares that cut like a blade. To stop those memories that ends up tearing you like a hurricane. What memories do you wish never existed? What moments do you wish you could change if you had the opportunity too?

Where Are You Now?
Do you remember those nights on New Years Eve as counted down with the ticking seconds on clocks until it hit midnight? And at those moments, you had resolution and expectation of what the new year would bring. Do you remember in those classrooms where the teachers would ask “where do you see yourself in ten years?” and you would give an answer pertaining to your dreams, goals, or fantasies?
Chances are what ever you were expecting that last day of the year or what ever you answered to your teacher did not come exactly or at all to fruition. I’m mean, did you ever expect to be where you are right now? Truth is that life probably took you by complete surprise and has taken you in a path that you never knew existed.
Years, months, days, or even hours bring unpredictable events. You fall in love with people who you never expected to ever fall in love with, you find new dreams and interested that never seemed possible way back when, and you yourself change with this ever changing world growing up with its challenges, hardships, happiness, and rewards.
We never able to predict the future. And even if we were able too, we can’t possibly predict how we would feel when that moment comes. So stop worrying so much about the future that is mysterious in the fact that we don’t really know where we will end up. Take advantage and chances with those people in your lives who haven’t left your life yet, take advantage of the things and enjoy you love that you might lose interest in one day, take advantage of the fact you made it so far from the time you made your last prediction of where you taught you would of been at this moment.
Take advantage of right now.
