Things I hear from clients all the time:

“I should have been a ___________.”

“I wish I didn’t stay at this job so long.”

“If only I had known.”

“It’s too late now.”

Regret is like a bitter root in your tea.

Its purpose is to help you make better tea,

not remind me you what a terrible tea-maker you are.

Acknowledge the bitterness.

Swallow it.

Then go out into the garden and try something else.
