I regret all those moments that I didn't go see the people that I love because I thought that I would have more fun elsewhere.

I regret all those times I stayed mad at my closest friends and family instead of cherishing my time with them.

I regret those times when I felt too stubborn to smile because I was in a bad mood.

I regret not hugging my grandma enough before she passed away.

I regret not calling my dad when he was close and calls were free because now he is so far away.

I regret all those times on my math tests when I didn't go with my gut feeling on an answer and I failed by one point.

I regret those times I wasn't there for my little sister when she was crying.

I regret throwing away good food when I see hungry children on the side of the highway.

I regret not sending letters that I write.

You know, I can look back and tread on all the things I did or didn't do, but why waste my energy doing that when I can start doing things to change peoples lives now, or maybe even just let the sun shine a little brighter for one day.
