No Regrets

January 17th, 2023 marks twenty-three years since my son, Danny died. His lifetime continues to have a profound impact on me, truly guiding my life in many ways.

I believe the experiences of our lives are encountered for a purpose, and it is our choice how we engage. Often, choices are not easily made, and it would be helpful to have some guidance. This quote from Lewis Carroll came across my path recently, seemingly randomly, or was it?

IN THE END… We only regret the chances we didn’t take, the relationships we were afraid to have, and the decisions we waited too long to make.

As time has passed, I am more acutely aware of the temporal nature of life. The words of Lewis Carroll feel like a guidepost, a manifesto, perhaps divinely sent to be shared on this day of remembrance as advice on how to live life.

Lewis Carroll’s insightful message is a reminder not to let fear or uncertainty prevent us from moving forward in life, despite the possibilities of unpleasant, unexpected, or unexplainable occurrences. Even-more, if unconditional love comes to your doorway, do not hesitate, let it in, because the love we share is all that remains when we remember. No regrets!
