No regrets

A wonderful destiny

Anna’s photo of an amazing sign she passes on her daily commute reminded me of some of the signs I see on a daily basis, including this small sign that adorns my refrigerator: “Destined to be an old woman with no regrets.” I have been blessed to have an amazing life, and one of the reasons it has been so rich is that I have always taken advantage of opportunities when they have presented themselves. You can only plan so much; the bulk of life is seizing opportunity when it comes.

Behind the glass are some of the items I have picked up on travels to Rwanda, Costa Rica, San Francisco and Thailand. Travel is one of the most important things in the world to me. Each of those trips was the result of seizing an incredible opportunity. I put the sign in a glass of wine because a few almost regretful moments involved too much wine. Ahem.
