I have to admit, I don’t have a lot of regrets for 2014. A lot of beautiful things happened. I found a job in St. Louis. Mike and I rented our first apartment together. We started our little family (us and Motley). We paid off some serious credit card debt. I was approached to do some freelance work. Mike proposed. It was a solid year and we made a lot of positive steps towards a happy future.
I guess my biggest regret is feeling like I could have done more to make bigger moves toward the future. For example, we could have denied ourselves a few fun things to pay off more debt. I could have searched for more freelance work to help increase my income. I could have exercised more and been more pro-active in the way I treated my body.
Most of all, I wish we had found some way to travel more. There were several times Mike and I planned on taking a weekend getaway trip to somewhere, just to get out of town. It never happened, either because I was too concerned about money or didn’t feel we had enough time to properly enjoy the getaway.
Those regrets seem to be typical for most people, so I’m satisfied with the year of 2014. Mike and I have big plans for 2015 and we are going to do whatever we have to make them happen.
Let’s keep the regrets in the past where they belong! January has already been a bang of a month, and I cannot wait to see how the next 4 months go!
Do you have any regrets from last year?
