Coffee and Conversation - Regrets

simply free

What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life.

I believe that every thing happens for a reason. I believe that everything I have done or haven't done makes me who I am today. Sure we all have some regrets in our life, things we wish we wouldn't have done, people we wish we wouldn't have wasted time and tears on...but in the end it all adds up to make you who you are.

I think the thing in my life I am most thankful I did was meet Chris. When we first started talking, I put him in the "friend" zone because he lived in Birmingham and I was in Atlanta. I had a long distance relationship before, and I just didn't want it today. 

I talked with my friend Bettra. I told her about how I was talking to Chris and how he wanted to come to Atlanta and hang out with me sometime. She told me she had a good feeling about hi, and that I needed to give it a chance. 

I am so thankful that I took her advice. I don't know why I tried to fight what my heart wanted. Long distance or right down the street....the heart wants the heart wants. I am so glad that I took a chance. 

Sometimes you have to take a chance. It is the things that you don't chance that you end up regretting. 


  1. Well, I'm happy you took the chance on him too! Cause I might not have been able to meet you otherwise!! And I agree, if you read my post today, you'll see what I say about regrets. We all have them, but it's called life, and who we are today is because of our past.

  2. Great story...look where you are today because you took a chance!
    When I was 22, I got engaged to my 36-year-old boyfriend after less than 2 months of dating, and we married 5 months after that. Some people might find that crazy, but I would hate to be sleeping alone (except for my dog) in an apartment right now, all because of what other people thought I "shouldn't" do.

  3. Hey there. I'm your newest follower and found you thru the monday coffee hop. I love your answer to this. Like you I believe everything happens for a reason and makes us who we are today. I'm glad you took your friend's advice. It's always good to follow good friend's advice.
