Day 13 of the 31 Day Blog Challenge - Biggest Regret
This one is a hard one for me. I am one of those people who believe that the choices we make at the time make us who we are. I wouldn't be where I am right now and with the people I am with had I made different choices. I try not to regret my choices, because I mostly love my life (sometimes its a bit stressful). I have a few regrets though.
We lived in Houston for 11 months and 16 days. I despised living in Houston. We were 9 hours away from our family during the most difficult time in our lives to one of the happiest times in our lives. All I wanted to do was get home. What I regret, is not doing more in Houston while I was there. I wished I would have explored the city a little more instead of living in our little bubble.
I wished I would have finished my college degree from a university. I have a photography degree and I am a certified cake decorator, but I still would love to see a piece of paper with my name on it. I could never figure out what I wanted to do, still can't. I already do the things I love with the degree and certifications that I have, but I still hold on to dreams of graduating.
I guess my last one would be my biggest... I wished I would have let my husband spend more time with his dad in the early years of our marriage. I didn't know that he would be taken from us so early. I needed help with our baby and I thought it would have been selfish on his part to go hunting for 10 days at a time while I had an infant. Now, I would gladly have given him that time with his dad.
A few things I hope to never regret: Saying "I love you" to my daughter and husband, or really anyone that I love. I always want them to know I love you. I never want to regret not taking chances and putting myself out there (thats why I started this blog). I never want to regret not giving enough; whether that means hugs, time, understanding, patience etc.
