The thought for this publish got here to me someday whereas I used to be mid Peloton experience. I occurred to look out at our yard hill and patio and thought “I remorse placing on this patio.” This brought on a stream of consciousness to stream as I processed my whole life and requested myself what different choices weren’t the very best. 

Maybe it’s pessimistic to not take a look at the brilliant facet of each choice I make. After all you possibly can nonetheless be taught from experiences you would like hadn’t occurred. And you can too respect issues that got here out of them. However simply because I say I remorse one thing doesn’t essentially imply I’d change the previous.

Life With Some Regrets

Foodblog (4 of 27)

Remorse: Placing within the yard patio

The day we stopped utilizing the again yard was the day the patio was constructed. The hill again there’s simply too steep! And it’s all the time lined in canine poop too. Whereas we may scoop up the poop quicker, we’ve got discovered that we have to do one thing about that hill or we’ll by no means get pleasure from our yard.

I put the patio in in 2016, and there have been some miscommunications with the builder about how steep the ultimate hill could be. I spent $4,000 on sod that yr, and grass hasn’t grown since. Thomas found that many of the dust used was “unhealthy dust” stuffed with rocks, so it doesn’t maintain water in any respect.

We need to do one thing with the again yard within the coming years, however we nonetheless don’t know what (terrace it? add extra dust? dig out the hill?). So for now it’s only a good mountain of brown grass and canine poop and we play within the entrance yard!

No Regrets: Screened In Porch

On the flip facet, we LOVE our screened in porch! Turning our deck right into a porch was among the best choices ever. We’re on the market ALL the time within the hotter months, which in Virginia is 3/4 of the yr. 

As soon as we end our renovation, I’d prefer to make the porch even cozier. We’re unhappy to not be capable of use it a lot this yr. 

Additionally, No Regrets On Our Health Room

This pandemic-inspired transformation of a storage room to Peloton room was nice! We nonetheless use it almost each day. LOVE having the Peloton (and are additionally unhappy we’ll use it much less this summer time once we’re on the different home).  

Remorse: Course About Programs

Again in 2020, I knew I wished to create a web based course and selected my subject: Digital Litter. I wanted somebody to stroll me via the method of setting it up and advertising and marketing it, and I heard a podcast with the proprietor of Recurring Revenue (a course about programs) on one other podcast I preferred. And with out doing any analysis, I purchased her program that week for 3x as a lot as a number of the comparable packages on the market. 

Whereas I did find yourself making a profitable course of my very own, it didn’t include ease. I didn’t love this system, and I actually remorse how a lot I spent. If I may rewind, I’d join one of many different course-about-courses packages. 

No Regrets: Creating Programs

HOWEVER, I’m so grateful that I now know the right way to create programs! I’m so pleased with the 2 that I supply, and hope to launch Bloom once more within the fall as a reside cohort. And since I pay loads every month for Kajabi, I need to create much more mini issues to supply – maybe a house organizing course of types in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later. What issues may I assist clear up with a course? Go away within the feedback! 

Remorse: Not Getting On Developments Sooner

I’m gradual to undertake new issues: Instagram, Reels, TikTok. I keep in mind when Instagram first got here out I used to be so gradual to get on it. It took me in all probability a yr to create my first Reel. And I nonetheless can’t get into TikTok (though I do have an account!). 

I additionally uncared for my YouTube and electronic mail record for YEARS whereas I principally paused any progress to concentrate on being a mother. Numerous regrets within the potential misplaced there. 

No Regrets: Beautycounter

However one space of progress I’ve been tremendous grateful to have partnered with on the early facet is Beautycounter!

It’s a kick-ass firm with all the very best intentions in sustainability, product innovation, provide chain transparency, human rights, web zero, and extra. Study extra within the social mission report

Regrets: School Mates

As a result of Matt and I began relationship within the second half of freshman yr, I used to be typically hanging out with him and his mates and let my friendships with my freshman corridor mates fade.

I see so many teams from faculty nonetheless getting collectively 20 years later and want I had caught with the ladies! I feel I had some social anxiousness round it and want I may return and inform my youthful self to spend money on these feminine relationships once I had the prospect. Whereas I did have some shut lady mates who I cherished, I had extra man mates than lady mates. 

No Regrets: Love Life

You could be questioning if marriage is on this record. Do I remorse getting married younger? Really, no. It was what I wished and wanted at the moment. I doubt you possibly can have satisfied me in any other case. I had a number of private progress in my mid-twenties to thirties and felt that I used to be spit out virtually a completely completely different individual. 

I additionally really feel that the timing of my divorce and remarriage was proper for thus many causes. However even with assembly Thomas: had I met him in his 20s, we doubtless wouldn’t have been a superb pair 😉 Boy was a bit wild from what I hear! 

However on today in 2016, we met for a primary date. We clicked instantly. No regrets there!! {Blissful anniversary Thomas!}

Regrets: Hangovers

However no fingers pointed as a result of I’ve been a bit wild at occasions myself! I’ve regretted each single hangover I’ve ever had. Gosh I hope there’s by no means one other one! Switching to nonalcoholic most nights of the week has been life-changing for me, however on the similar time, once I do drink, my tolerance is about as little as it has ever been. One drink now and I’m out!

And on a enjoyable observe, I had laser hair elimination years in the past on my bikini and underarm areas and THAT was an excellent funding!!! : ) Though it damage like hell, I’m so glad I did it. 

Additionally no regrets on the ache of getting infants with no epidural, having loopy braces in grades six via eight, or each greenback I’ve invested into self-care or higher well being.

Basically, I feel we by no means remorse time spent with others. Experiences and relationships are all the time definitely worth the funding.
