Life is way to short to live with regret. I mean I really can not stand the "grass is always greener" outlook some people have out there in our world. Maybe that is part of the reason I am getting more and more excited about my new life. I have so much to be thankful for, and so much to look forward to. And I have people very close to me that are going through their own turmoil that really seems much much harder than my own.
To look forward to: I baked cupcakes for a co-workers baby shower at work tomorrow (like mother like daughter) and I got these awesome cupcake papers right at Fred Meyer (the local grocery store). And you won't believe this! They were on the baking isle and are made by Reynolds!!! They cost a $1.67 and look so professional. I know my cupcakes will shine and the mommy to be will feel very loved at how pretty they are;)
As for my friend going through something much harder:( She lost her husband about 3 months ago to a long battle with cancer. She is an inspiration to me everyday. And she is constantly showing me how to fully appreciate every second we have on this earth. How to really milk every last drop out of each second of the day.
I am happy at the amount of green my grass has. I am satisfied with my life as it is at this moment. And I live with absolutely no regret about the decisions I have made in my previous life, because they made me who I am today...which is a much stronger, better person.
