Regret - have none

Title: "Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow" - Albert Einstein
Year: 2006
Media: Acrylic and resin
Size: 20cm x 20cm

Katherine Mansfield said it well "make it a rule of life never to regret and never look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can’t build on it; it is good only for wallowing in"

You need to decide when you look back - are you doing so to beat yourself up over past events and mistakes - or are you taking stock, making amends and moving on.

We have all made mistakes in the past that have hurt other people and often ourselves too. Admit our wrongs - make amends and move on. You cannot build on negative emotions such as guilt or regret.

"Owning and making amends for your mistakes afford you the opportunity to build on your past and integrate it. " - Anne Wilson Schaeff
