Regrets ? me? not really!
After all, what’s in the past should stay firmly in the past! You should live in the present.
Learn from your past, whether good or bad and then move on!
Keep for best
My mother was very much of the “keep for best” generation.When she died, there were cupboards filled to the brim with delicate china, used once or twice, clothes she wore on very rare occasions…you get my drift.
She died when I was still a teenager.She was an “older” mum, quite unusual at the time.
It made me realise you should appreciate your life for what it is now and enjoy what you have.
What is the point of having nice things if you do not use them or even see them ?!
Nothing is really sacred in our house, sure accidents do happen although oddly enough all the treasures accumulated by my mother and my own souvenirs have escaped quite unharmed.
I have kept some of the china my mother never dared to use, only one piece got damaged and that occurred on moving houses!
So when a treasured toy or other gets damaged, broken or redundant, I tell my children to remember how they enjoyed that particular item and many more toys, cuddlies…are yet to be cherished.
Possessions are just that, they don’t always last but your memories live on inside of you.
