No regrets

If there’s one thing in life that I try very hard to never take for granted — it’s the sheer ability to make choices.

Which is why I strive to live a life with no regrets. 

 

We have just one life to live, right?
…so why not make the most of it by taking advantage of the choices we have in our everyday lives?

To choose happiness first. 

To choose presence more often. 

To choose to shift your focus. 

To choose  (self)love over (self)hate. 

To choose simplicity over complexity. 

And yes, to choose to live a healthy, fit life

…even if that means going for that workout that you don’t *think* you want to do. 

Which is how this happened: 

It was quick. It was dirty. It was sweaty. (TWSS)
…and it was exactly what I needed. 

To get out of my head.
To shoo away the anxiety that was back and lurking.
To find clarity.
To chase and grab hold of presence…something I was struggling with on Sunday for whatever reason.

It didn’t matter how far we went or how fast or slow we went. We just ran. #simply.
…and I most certainly did not regret that choice. 

Never regret. Embrace choices. Live presently. <—my new mantra, likey?

  1. I struggle to live simply with no regrets… I always tend to over think things and wonder about what ifs. That’s why I love coming to your blog where you talk so often about just living in the moment. Thanks!

    • I have that tendency to overthink too — but have been trying REALLY hard to reign that tendency in. It was only driving me nuts and not getting me very far at that. I’m SO glad my blog reminds you to live simply, that is SUCH a compliment!!

  2. Since I started running, I realized how much running is such a therapy for me. It makes me focus on me, what I can do and how my body/mind work together. Every time I start acting spazzy, Tony asks me if I need to go for a run. Even if it’s a mile, it brings me back into focus.

    • God, I swear Tony and Scott are cut from the same cloth — he says that to me all the time TOO when I get all up in my head and spazzy like that. And he’s always right about it (99% of the time anyway!). SO glad running has become such a therapeutic time for you too!!

  3. LOVE your new mantra and this post. I think that I’m getting better about not regretting and embracing my choices. Living presently is still a struggle for me at time. But it’s step by step, right? ;-)

    • It’s taken me a LONG time to get to this point…and truthfully, I think it’ll always be a work-in-progress kind of thing. It’s so easy to get caught up in the RUSh of life.
