Regret or wonder over past decisions serves no useful purpose other than to inform us as to future decisions.
From Maud Miller
, a poem by Johan Greanleaf Whittier:
For of all sad words of tongue or pen,
The saddest are these: "It might have been!"
However, if we can be comfortable that the decisions we make are based upon the best of our knowledge and understanding at the time we make them
we should not kick ourselves for having made the "wrong" decision in retrospect.
When it comes to wearing a T-shirt with a logo or otherwise, soserene, it probably never crossed your mind that it would be significant...maybe you'd have met your man anyway...maybe you'd have had equally great life experiences if you'd never met him...who knows?
Living with your sights in the rear-view mirror leaves you no chance to assess the view from where you are or the prospect of what's ahead. Worth checking, every now and again but not all the time!
