Life is too short for regrets. I have exactly 3 in my 36 years of life. Two of them I had no control over and could do nothing to change the outcome.
The third has to do with going from a manual wheelchair to a power chair when I started high school. If I were still in a manual chair today, I would be in so much better shape and there’s no telling what I could have done physically. At the time my parents were afraid I wouldn’t be able to get to my classes on time, and consequently pushed me to make the change. As a lazy 14 year old kid, all I knew was that this would allow me to be even more lazy. I had no idea what the consequences would be, and even if I had, I probably wouldn’t have cared. I care now. Every time I see one of those extreme sports wheelchair guys I think” I could have been that”
Anyone that knows me, especially women, will tell you I speak my mind. I’ll say I love you often and I’m not afraid to be softhearted, because I don’t ever want to regret something I didn’t say. One woman in particular, (I’ll freely admit I’m very sweet on her.) For you young kids out there,that means I’m WAY into her) calls me mushy” man. “she says I get” a sound” in my voice when I talk to her.
I never apologize for that. Life is too short to hold back. In everything that you do, go all out. You’ll probably have to step out of your comfort zone, and you may get hurt, but at least you won’t regret what you didn’t do.
