Chances Missed…or Not

Today’s NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) Writing Prompt

Write an apology letter to yourself for not taking a chance you wish you would have taken in life, love, work, or…?


Dear Tracy,

I’m not sure where to begin, exactly.  I don’t have a lot of regrets. Sure, there are things I wish I would have done differently from time to time but I always remember that I might not be where I am at this moment – at this precise place in my life had I changed something — even remotely changed something.  I like my life. No, I love my life. I love my husband, my child and I like myself.  Do I have issues, concerns, bad days, doubts? Of course I do.  Who doesn’t?  But I never doubt the love in my life. I never doubt that I am loved and that I love deeply.  I have a wonderful roof over my head. I have food in my belly. I have warm arms to hold me and I am healthy as are my loved ones. I am so very thankful.

If I could change anything, it would be that I would be more assertive, more brave, more of a risk-taker. I wish I had more confidence in myself to put myself out there with my abilities.  I wish I weren’t so danged tentative. I’m not when it comes to pushing other people and encouraging them but I forget to take my own advice from time to time.  I wish I could stop caring what others think as that has been one thing that has constantly held me back and only because I LET IT.

That has to stop.

I really don’t have any apologies to make. I apologize for nothing. Life is what I make it and I have made a good life that is far from over.  That is what keeps me going, keeps me pushing and refusing to give up.

Remember to never stop loving yourself, taking care of yourself and making time for yourself so that you can be the very best for everyone else, including you.
