Ask and you shall receive. I found a really dope Instagram writing challenge today that I can finally relate to. If you know me, then you know I love to write but I’ve been somehow struggling to tap into that heartspace to share my passion with you guys. You know, besides all the food posts – I’m a little deeper than that but fear is a muhva. And here I am today, scrolling IG and this writing challenge appears with this topic prompt for November 5th. And how fitting right? We have to write about:”No Regrets.”
I have a few “personal challenges” of my own over the next 30 days while I participate in the challenge – (I’m a little late but that’s cool).
My problem is I think too much and it becomes analysis paralysis and really messes me up. I know that I have a gift of just free writing so all my posts are free writes.
No editing (really), and written fairly quickly (5-7 minutes tops). Here’s my first post
Don’t beat me up too much 🙂
Sometimes it feels like a daily affirmation that’s said so freely but misunderstood. And sometimes it’s a statement that haunts me because how can I not have them (when I feel them); when I’ve done things and said things and abandoned things that made me feel nothing but regret. “No regrets” is a life changer. It’s a growth forcer. It is something that when you’re young, it can send you into depression if you’re not careful, but if you pay attention; no regrets goes from you being fearful to fearless, from unforgiving to forgiving, from cold to compassionate, from misunderstood to understanding. “No Regrets” is a perspective changer. It allows you to be human. And see humans as flaws and all, and beautiful. To use and be used for better if you let it. To learn life’s greatest lessons so that you become better and I know that – in an odd way, my regrets brought me closer to some big spiritual awakenings, and God. “No Regrets” is something I used to struggle with but now – slowly – it’s made me a better person who’s future steps are less calculated and more present. So now the only regrets I have are being too hard on myself for being normal and living life less than I deserve. But I have no regrets because I finally get it.
I’ll be posting all my writings on my IG: @iab365
