We're back with a little Top Three action today. I took a little break, but now it's time for another! Today we're talking about regrets. I'm not someone who looks back and dwells on the way things could have been or should have been. Most of the time I chalk up anything that happened in the past that's crazy to being young or I view it as a lesson. You guys! I was that girl in high school who wouldn't eat in front of her boyfriend!! WHAT WAS I THINKING? Is it crazy that might be my biggest regret? hahaha! All that to say, other than passing up food back in the day I don't have any major big things I really regret. Did I make some dumb decisions? Absolutely! But I learned from them all. Even when I watched my seventeen-year-old boyfriend enjoy his meal as I "pretended" I wasn't hungry. (FYI-I think it was all about getting something in my teeth and him seeing it. CRA-ZY!)
I'm baring my heart and sharing my Top Three Things I DO NOT Regret....
#1 Going Away to College
My senior year, my bestie and I applied at several different universities together. We wanted to take the world by storm and preferably do it not too close to home. We applied to Auburn, toured Ole Miss and Mississippi State, and at the last minute my friend decided she wanted to play volleyball in college. So-I was kind of left with a completely blank slate. You must know that I am someone who thrives with some good friendships. I've always been a girl's girl (I get along well with the guys too, but I'm not one of those girls who didn't have many girl friends. Know what I mean?). I threw caution to the wind and JUMPED out of my comfort zone by applying AND attending Arkansas State University. It was only about two and a half hours from my home, but I only barely knew one other girl who was going. One girl. Barely. I have no doubt that God was speaking to my heart. He gave me so much peace about this move. I met some of the best friends, made some amazing memories, and was introduced to my awesome hubby. Definitely NOT a regret when it comes to that decision!
#2 Infertility Days
This wasn't a choice, because I'm 99% positive if I was given the choice I NEVER would have chosen this. But on the flip-side if I could redo it, I wouldn't change a thing! I shared my story here, but when I think back to moments in my life I'd change this would NOT be one. I learned so much about myself, our marriage was strengthened, we relied on God more than ever, and on this side of that trial we can see all those blessings. If you're in the middle of this issue right now, please now I am praying for you. Waiting for a baby, is one of the very hardest things I've ever done.
I've had a family blog for years. Even before kids, several of my friends and I had blogs. But one day I realized I wanted to change it up and make it interesting for people other than my grandma. :) I'm absolutely overwhelmed at the amount of kindness and love shown over the blog world. I love interacting with you guys, getting ideas, and hearing your opinions! I don't regret changing up my blog one bit! Maybe blogging isn't the thing for you or maybe it is? But if you're thinking about starting something and just a little nervous-throw caution to the wind and GET STARTED!! You don't want to look back and regret not giving it a chance. :)
Let's live life with no regrets today, girls! Happy Tuesday! XOXO
