Don't they go together? You make resolutions. You don't follow through, then you get regrets.
I have a lot of regret in my life. Things I should have done. Things I didn't do. Things I wish I could redo so it would turn out better. Things that should have been left unsaid.
Through two very long car rides, I had a lot to think about. Mainly I though about how I wished that I could go back to certain moments of time, to spend time with people as they were back then. I miss hanging out with Ray and Justine, their compassion and caring... before everyone's personal lives exploded and things got strange. I miss Chris and Kacy, how caring and supportive they were before my divorce, before they fell off the face of the planet. I miss Nick, who was my rock, before our lives took us in different directions.
There are also people that I wish we could send back in time, knowing what they know now. Heather has a new resolve that is truly impressive. I now wish she had it in High School. I wish that I had heard what people said to me before my marriage (Heather, Dawn and Chelsey).
But, in the end, I can't live in the past. I can look back on these memories fondly. I can't beat myself up about what might have been, or what I should have done.
Like they say in Meet the Robinsons: "Keep Moving Forward."
I'm going to keep moving forward, right to bed.
