Do I have regret? Sure, there are plenty of things that could fit into these categories of the definition for the word. I regret the loss of my grandpa and that my children will never have the opportunity to know him and how wonderful he was. I regret losing things all the time, which I do often. I am probably one of the world’s best at losing items. ESPECIALLY my markers/pens at work. ALL the time I am asking if they have seen my pen/marker. What good is a barista without her marker??? Its pretty vast how wide the span of regret can go. Some regret HUGE life choices, others smaller things like being unable to attend an event.
For myself I would probably say my biggest regret would be not finishing my college degree yet. I have about a year left to finish but with work and starting a family it got left by the wayside. In my career currently I don’t necessarily need a degree to advance to the next level however beyond that would require something more, or if I wanted to do something different I need to finish and get that “paper” that costs a heck of a lot of money. I enjoyed college and learning and the atmosphere but in the real world you truly need experience to be successful in your career. I feel that Starbucks has taught me more than college ever would beyond the practical applications of things such as computer programs, or applications that are used in the fields you work in.
So regret? Perhaps some but nothing super big. I don’t regret any of the major life choices I have made enough to dwell on them beyond the occasional blog post which makes you think on these things
