Wisdom Wednesday | In The End We Only Regret The Chances We Didn't Take

Happy Wisdom Wednesday!

Are you guys sick of hearing me talk about my trip to Wales yet? No, okay good because I'm going to squeeze in a couple more posts about it, so I hope you don't mind too much!


"We only regret the chances we didn't take"

With my year abroad coming up so quickly ( I leave on Friday you guys, that's in 2 days!), I have been doing a lot of thinking in the past week about what this trip really means, and what's really going to happen. Will it mean falling in love with travelling and not coming home any time soon? Or will it mean meeting someone special and making somewhere new my home?  Or will it mean regretting leaving a good paying job, and all my family and friends to do something I wasn't cut out for? It's that last one that really gets to me. Will I have regret?

You see I am a planner. I like to plan things, I live to plan things. I plan out every detail and make lists of what I want to happen and then I get disappointed when I realize life doesn't really work like that. It's something I am trying to work on, because I have realized that when I plan out my life, I don't take chances I should. Which is why I am excited I've decided to take the chance, make the leap and move to the UK. It's something totally different, and it's completely out of my comfort zone but that is what makes me most excited. And I truly think that I would have regretted it immensely if I hadn't done it..

I encourage you all to take a risk, take a chance, make a change ( thank you Kelly Clarkson) and just do something you have always wanted to do. Because it's true, when it all boils down in the end, your regret will be that you didn't take it.

Much Love,
Spenser xx
