I’ve been reflecting lately about those moments in the past that I wish I could change and what I can do to live without regrets. Sometimes when I take a step back I realize that I am not living life to its fullest and I seem to be rushing through, going from event to event instead of soaking in the joy of today. I know it’s not possible to live a perfect life, but there are things I can work on and give more attention to so that my life can be filled with as much love and joy as possible and as little regret as possible. Here are ten ideas that I am going to work on:

10 Ways to Live Without Regrets

1. When feeling rushed and in a hurry, slow down. Take a deep breath, and try to think clearly. Those are the moments that I end up forgetting something, not paying attention to what I am doing, or getting frustrated with my kids, myself, or others. The few minutes saved by doing things in a rush is not worth the possible regret later for saying something I shouldn’t, or doing something I wish I had not done.

Gratitude Journals are a great way to remember the good things in life. They can uplift us and help us reflect on the things that make us happy. They are also a great way to document your life.

This list is a sequel to my first post 25 Gratitude Journal Prompts and Ideas. Following this list, there is a free PDF printable for you to create a bookmark for your journal.

There seems to be a lot of expectations about Valentine’s Day. It can feel like a day full of couples and romantic love, so if you’re single, suddenly your singleness feels more pronounced than ever. When I was divorced, I decided that Valentine’s Day didn’t have to be a day about romantic relationships, it could be a day that simply celebrates love. Love for myself, love for my kids, my friends, neighbors, etc. It can be a day or week to enjoy being surrounded by color and fun during the drab cold days of February. It was a paradigm shift for me. No longer did I need to feel sorry for myself because I had nobody to love me, because in reality, I did! I didn’t need romantic love to feel loved.

1. Brighten up your home. If you like flowers, buy yourself your favorite flowers and put them in a pretty vase. If you like Valentine’s decorations, put some up and enjoy the fun of the season.
