This Week...Rains Bring Sunsets...No Regrets!

This week reminded me of our summers in South Florida where you could count on afternoon showers or thunderstorms. 


 

We crucify ourselves between two thieves: regret for yesterday and fear of tomorrow. Fulton Oursler



We went out to Kickerillo to see if the eggs in one of the bluebird boxes had hatched but we had to dodge rain and lightning. But we persisted and take a look…


 

The past is a great place and I don't want to erase it or to regret it, but I don't want to be its prisoner either. Mick Jagger



Today is something called Toss Away the Could Haves and Should Haves Day.  (otherwise known as No Regrets!)




 

The man who insists upon seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides. Accept life, and you must accept regret. Henri Frederic Amiel

 


Years ago I made the decision to change companies. I was having “buyer’s remorse” about my decision and a friend said to me...You’ve made your decision. Now move forward and live with it. 





I see it all perfectly; there are two possible situations - one can either do this or that. My honest opinion and my friendly advice is this: do it or do not do it - you will regret both. Soren Kierkegaard




I’ve read enough posts and comments here to know that most of you live in the present with no regrets!  


 

Have a wonderful regret-free weekend!

Hi Kathy Streib - You have lots of great quotes to help us get through today.  However, there are some things that it is hard to put in a shoebox and tuck away.

Kathy your friend gave you good advice.  There is no second guessing once a decision has been made.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker I was unfamiliar with them too until this week. 

Carol Williams I agree. Of course, I wish I'd had this mindset when I was younger.

Wayne Martin Wasn't that a ponder-worthy quote. 

Kat Palmiotti we were happy to see that they were all doing well. And that advice was some of the best ever given to me.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD glad you liked them. We've been trying to chase away the invasive sparrows from our birdhouse here.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I hope that you both had your Saturday breakfast/brunch!!!

Sharon Tara I have been that way but learned to let it go and move on. Otherwise I'm mired in second guessing my decisions.

Grant Schneider we get so much joy from our birds! This should be the last brood until next spring. 

Rocky Dickerson totally agree. This is not a dress rehearsal.

Will Hamm we'd like to monitor more in some of the local parks. We're working on it. 

Thank you Jeff Dowler, CRS some of those quotes made me think twice.

Chris Ann Cleland When we realize that the moment we have is NOW, we have reached a very special place. 

Bob "RealMan" Timm I couldn't believe it either.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I agree. We just need to make sure that the shoebox stays special and doesn't prevent us from life. 

George Souto I have never forgotten what he said. And I remind myself of it.

Kathy, we got about 20 sprinkles this afternoon, and really could use a good downpour.  The fires are making such poor air quality and its really hazy.

I hope the little bluebirds survive. I hear there's a lot of bird death happening on the mainland - juvenile birds.

Hello Kathy - ah, the subject of regrets --- either for those who fully participate as well as for the others who run and hide(or avoid) --- it's definitely a conversation-starter.  And perhaps an ongoing discussion.
