How do you regret-proof your life?

Mom Life

My friend Suzy is a regret-proofing coach.

I love her message.

I hadn’t put a name to it, but I realized recently that I’ve started to regret-proof my life.

Last week I took my kids on a getaway that I’ve wanted to do for 12 years.  12 years – can you believe I waited so long?  It was a 30-minute drive and cost a little more than a car payment… and yet, I waited.

Why do we wait?  Sometimes we don’t feel we can justify spending money.

Sometimes we think there will be a “better time.”  Or that it will be “too much work,” or “too crowded.”

None of these were good enough reasons for me to put it off one more day.

I packed their bags without them knowing, picked them up early and surprised them!  I think it was more exciting for me than for them…

What have you been waiting for?  Putting off?  Questioning if it’s worth doing?

If it’s been on your mind for a while – perhaps you should consider doing it.

Take the trip. Try something new. Spend time with the people who matter the most.

My guess is, you won’t regret it.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!
