I try not to have
any many regrets, but sometimes there are little ones that scrape through without being able to control the ability to not regret it.
And I guess this ‘regret’ doesn’t 100% count in 2015, but I’m going to say it’s my first (of hopefully very few) regrets for this year.
I regret not meeting (and befriending) many people at falls. I had every intention of becoming friends with anyone that crossed my path over the week, and while I wasn’t unfriendly or anything, I just didn’t put in as much of an effort to get too close to anyone. In a way I was challenging myself by going alone (although I was kinda there with someone, so that might be where I got a little confused and the abilities were blurry). I did meet and chat to quite a few randoms (some hotties), and we had good chats at that. But at the end of the week I came away feeling like I hadn’t quite gone what I went for. (What did I go there for?) Apart from the music and atmosphere etc, I felt like I missed out on few things here and there.
Maybe I just feel that way now because I’ll probably never see those people again and I didn’t do anything about allowing the possibility of catching up with them someday. Who knows.
Maybe I just feel a little down because I have the flu (which sucks balls in summer time).
Maybe I’m just feeling lonely. Again.
I think regrets are a good thing sometimes, as they are a good reminder of things we can and want to improve within ourselves.
Here’s to 2015 and my regrets that will force improvement. Turning regrets into positive actions. Olivia the optimist.
