Fandango’s Provocative Question #122

Fandango’s question today is certainly food for thought.

For this week’s provocative question I’m going to ask you to think back upon the life you’ve lived so far. And as you do so, consider this week’s question:

What is your biggest regret in life?

I think I can honestly say I have no regrets about anything I’ve done, although in hindsight I may have done some things a little differently, especially the last time I saw my Dad.
As for things I did not do, well I had the chance to work in Jersey for two years but didn’t take it up as I was only 18 and lacked confidence. Plus my engagement had failed and I felt I was running away from my problems instead of facing them head on.

Hubby and I should have met years before we did as he went to the same places I did with my friends, but on different nights, and when he was in The Falklands, the guy in front of him picked my letter out of the box. They were colleagues.
If any, that is one regret for both of us, that we didn’t meet all those years ago, and things could have been so different…….. no RTA, a brood of kids, and I would have made a good Wife of.
Still, we are together now, some 32 years, and appreciate everything we have. Certainly no regrets there.

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    There are plenty of what ifs in life but I’m like you – happy with the choices I made and didn’t make. No regrets here either!

    You are both lucky to be together. Fate?

  4. I try not to dwell on regrets but wish I could have been kinder to others along the otherwise satisfying path I have wandered.

  5. Fandango says:

    Sounds like you do have a lot to be thankful for.

  6. willowdot21 says:

    Well done both of you 💜

  7. I think you hit the nail on the head. If you made other choices you would not be where you are today. Mazel tov on your long happy relationship.
