I have a couple of policies:
1. No regrets. We make the best choices we’re capable of making at the time we make them. And even if we don’t, we can’t go back and unmake them. So I figure: just get over it. Learn, yes. But move on.
2. Direct answers to direct questions. Only fair. But that sometimes means revealing more than I was prepared to reveal. At least, then — at that time.
Sometimes they run in conflict, those two. And I wish I could take the words back. But then again, I don’t, because they’re better where they are now: out of my head, out on the wind. No longer making noise, letting me focus on other things.
Like living with no regrets.
