It’s always hard for me to keep in my mind the notion of time passing. We moved around a lot when I was a kid, at least every two or three years. So instead of noticing and accepting changes as time went by, I got used to pushing the reset button whenever we moved somewhere new. If things weren’t going well, never mind – another chance to reinvent myself would come around soon. I’m thinking about this because today I did the meditation on emotions and the big emotion that came to the fore was regret. This was no surprise, as I struggle with regret. Although I have professional accomplishments to my credit, I feel that deep down that I am in life what I was always labeled in school: an underachiever. I bought into this and even found it a comforting notion: even if I wasn’t living up to it, I had potential. Now that seems like an empty notion. Time does pass. Today is day 18 of the challenge; only 11 more days to go. I want to stay mindful of of these days going by. Then maybe once it is over I can let the experience go without regret.
