    We do not take action because of “I” the ego’s judgments. We avoid awkward, embarassing, things we may fail at, be criticized.

    I can look back at a life time of missed opportunity, instead of regret, I have adapted and try to take action daily, now.

    Old dogs can learn new tricks, the kind is play dough, we know from neuroscience.

    I regret an opportunity to take a great trip…tickets were bought, but I listened to advice that I really have to rough it and didn’t go. I think it would have been a wonderful experience and I can rough it!

    I rarely linger with anything substantial, but I do wonder about a young lady I might have taken more seriously about 30 years ago. Recognizing that I didn’t pay enough attention then has made me notice and appreciate people around me today…it is hard to call it a regret, except it was a hard lesson.

    What about you?
