i still get that question and it doesn’t frustrate me anymore:
do i have regrets?
i end up smiling, instead. it was frustrating for a time because it was always followed by people’s would-have- and could-have-been’s for me. ironic how we unconsciously project our own wishes on other people, don’t you think?
but i realized…
i still get that question yet it does not frustrate me anymore…
not because others have changed (some still share their would-have- and could-have-been’s)
but simply because i am at peace with the then and the now. at peace that even when i am not even sure what tomorrow will be, i can find my heart smiling. at peace that even when others project their own wishes on me, i can smile with all of my heart and say,
i took a risk, i gave my best, i got broken…but i was also healed.
Alhamdulillahi Rabbi’l Alamin for everything.
