QUOTES from the Sandbox ~ Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020

By
Real Estate Agent with TEAMCONNECT REALTY - (407) 394-9766

Hi Everyone!  Perhaps this seven letter word sneaks its way even into the
thoughts of very positive minds.  The word: r-e-g-r-e-t-s.  I found it in my
mind this morning and decided to go to 'Quotes' for answers.  Yep, I did get
some insight.  Perhaps you might like what I found.  Have a great Thursday.
                                                                                                                    ~Jane

"Never regret anything that once made you smile."                    ~Mark Twain

"Regret is an appalling waste of energy you can't build on it - it's only good
for wallowing in."                                                                ~Katherine Mansfield
 

Twelve Common Regrets by Lolly Daskal,  Pres.& Ceo  'Lead From Within'. 
The following pertains to our business, our Life, our Leadership with the
suggestion to review and take  A-c-t-i-o-n NOW rather than future regrets:"
     "I WISH...
      1.  I had spent more time with people I love -
      2.  had worried less -
      3.  forgiven more -
      4.  stood up for myself -
      5.  lived my own life -
      6.  been more honest -
      7.  worked less -
      8.  cared less what other people think -
      9.  lived up to my potential -
     10. faced my fears -
     11, stopped chasing the wrong things -
     12. lived more in the moment."                                         ~Lolly Daskai

"Never regret anything that has happened in your life,  it cannot be changed,
undone, or forgotten.  So take it as a lesson learned and move on."
                                                                                                 ~Anonymous

"Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves -- regret for the past                      and fear of the future."                                                            ~Fulton Oursler

Regret of neglected opportunity is the worst hell that a living soul can
inhabit."                                                                                   ~Rafael Sabatini

"One of the greatest regrets in life is being what others would want you
to be, rather than being yourself."                                      ~Shannon L Adler

"Regrets are illuminations come too late."                         ~Joseph Campbell

"For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these:
 'It might  have been.' "                                             ~John Greenleaf Whittier

"Let the dead Past bury its dead!"                  ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


"Nobody gets to live life backward.  Look ahead, that is where your future
lies."                                                                                               ~Ann Landers

" A man is not old until REGRETS take the place of DREAMS ."
                                                                                                         ~John Barrymore

do better."                                                                          ~Maya Angelou

Morning Jane.

I have but a few regrets, not enough for me to lose sleep over.

Good morning Jane. The temps in Chicago today will not find there way out of the 20's! Big change from southwest Florida. That said, no regrets! My favorite today:

"Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves -- regret for the past and fear of the future."

Hi  Wayne Martin , 'Good Morning!'  Saw a little humor amidst your truths... You moved from Florida to Chicago and I moved from Chicago to Florida and yet, using your words, we both can say:  That said, no regrets!  I freely give you my Chicago Winter and gladly accept  your Florida Winter Wonderland.  Have a fantastic Friday in a fantastic metropolis, Chicago.  We are both so lucky, huh?!?

I don't dwell on regrets, but if we look back in our past I am sure we would all do things differently at times.

Thanks Jane. I appreciate all of the quotes, but like my friend Alexandra, the Maya Angelou quote really hit home.  Have a great Friday. D

Dear Ron and Alexandra Seigel, I did  'ponder' as  Michael Jacobs invites us all to do  and got to thinking about my own life in relationship to 'regrets.'  Yes, there were times where fear paralyzed me and I could have, should have followed the Joseph Campbell quote: "The cave you are afraid to enter is the one that has the treasure."  As a result, I did lose the  opportunity, the reward, the treasure but I came away with a lesson.  Maya Angelou has a great reply to my seeming failure ---- Now that I know better, Do Better.  Thank you for your friendship;  I do notice and openly thank you.

   Hi Bob  seems others also like  the Maya Angelou quote.  Last night I was on YouTube and there was this documentary on the life of Maya Angelou.  Bob Crane, I was so unaware of her life before this...her personal life story.  If you haven't seen it, you might enjoy watching.

Hey, James Dray,   You must be the easiest man on earth to live with.  For a long time now I have been paying attention to your responses to posts of ActiveRain members.   Along with a perennial smile, I image or BELIEVE is a very positive energy.  James, I am very happy to know you.  On low days where my energy is lacking and I am chasing around trying to find it, I just think of you and just like that my energy level changes.  Thank you for being a great friend, James.  I am very happy to know you.

Hi Brian England,   I so agree with you in not addressing 'regrets' as a daily exercise.  Although many times our 'regrets' seem to be lying harmlessly in a wayside next to us, they are often alive with sparks that can ignite a fire.  If we take the time to investigate our seemingly sleeping 'regrets', we would note that they are quite awake...alive.  Now that we have all or at least more factors, we can make wiser choices...We Can Do Better!!

Michael Jacobs,  I also like the Ann Lander's  philosophy of life -  look to the future and live mindfully in the moment.

Will, it must be really sad when a person loses their dreams, huh?!? As long as we have dreams, we have positive energy.  Seems like when you let go of your dreams, you let go of a joy and happiness -- who leave when hope walks away.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD , ah, the wisdom of Maya Angelou.  Recently I watched a documentary on her life on YouTube;  have you seen it?

Myrl Jeffcoat, have a feeling we might have a lot of crazy drivers on the road of life if we tried to live our lives backwards, huh?!? And our world is a little crazy already.   Have a great weekend.
