Regret/https://claudetteellinger.wordpress.com

Regret

Like a new kitten
Soft and warm
Usually attached to 
The past
Either resent or long ago
An uncomfortable feeling
Like a rock in your shoe
You sit down with it
Familiar as an old friend
Talk it over
Hold it to the light
You pick the last feather
Bundle what is really yours’
There is a certain forgiveness 
That is necessary
Important to stop
Punishing  yourself
On the rack
Or on the stock
Answer honestly
Would you really have done it differently
…Probably not
Time to move on
Find other things
You can regret
Other things you can feel bad about
Beat yourself up

So true. Regret is a feeling, and feelings are never facts. Feelings are a barometer, and regret might be signaling that it's time for a change...

We rise and fall, rain and shine in those memory moments we can't change. Your words tell us to move on.
