Forget Regret...or Life is yours to Miss...

There is no future
There is no past
I live this moment
as my last

There's only us
There's only this
Forget Regret
Or Life is Yours to Miss

No other road
No other way
No day but today
~ Lyrics from my all-time favorite musical - RENT!

I love this...
Forget Regret - Or Life is Yours to Miss...
Have truer words ever been spoken?

What I struggle with though, is not the concept.
I get that...I mean...obviously!

For me, it's the actual DOING.
How do I 'forget regret' - how do I let go of the things that are gnawing at my core?
Letting go is soooo much easier said then done.

I get that it takes more energy to be sad or hurt, angry, resentful...than it does to be happy.
But what if there is something that you can't get out of your mind, out of your heart...then what?

Kidding. Mostly Kidding.

Fake it til you make it right?

I ran across this quote this morning...
You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present. ~ Jan Glidewell

I'm scared that this is going to happen to me.
It doesn't take a lot to make me happy. I'm a simple girl and I long for a simple life.

I feel like I'm really great at cherishing & embracing the little things in life...
But if I can't let go some of the other *little* and *not-so-little* things...

If I can't forget regret...
Life is mine to miss...
