# 2 of the 5 Regrets

09 Jun

2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.

When my children were little, they were my whole life. At least that’s what I thought at the time. I enjoyed them a lot but….I did spend more time than was necessary keeping my house clean, washing clothes and hanging them outdoors and ironing (I even owned and used a mangle). I made dresses for my girls, prepared all our meals except when we went to visit my parents. I did a lot of baking and working in the yard. I spent a lot of time and energy doing all this stuff.

I guess I can say that my only regret regarding working too much is about when my children were little. I wish I had spent more time playing with them than cleaning my home etc.

BUT this is important for all of us to remember….Everyone is doing the best they can, if we knew a better way to do life we would do it. That’s true for me regarding my past as well as now and forever. We all do what we think is best at the time. We don’t know what we could have done differently until after the fact.

Blessings for Peace, Love and Joy abundantly.
