A National Institute of Health study found that, in a general sample, people's biggest life regret involved education. College students' biggest life regret involved relationships.

Quote of the day:

“Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.”
― Arthur Miller

Rant of the day:

I've always tried to live my life based on whether or not I'd be able to live with what I do today, tomorrow. The point of that is to avoid regrets, and that's why I'm starting this blog.

I met someone who, for whatever reason, I'm incredibly drawn to. Someone I can't stop thinking about, and no matter what seems to happen between us, I don't stop wanting him. We're seeing each other now, but in five months this same city, same workplace relationship will become a long-distance relationship. He doesn't believe in long-distance relationships, and I don't blame him, but I also don't want to lose something I want just because of distance.

Because when it comes down to it, distance is a very small thing. It's like money, and family, and everything else. It's only a big deal if you make it a big deal. Relationships can survive, people can move, and we can all change our lives. This is the first step in changing mine, in the hopes that I won't end up with regrets. Or, if I do, at least I'll regret trying too hard, which would be better than regretting that I didn't try at all.

No one should let something go if they know they want it. Go after it. Do it the right way, the smart way, but go after what you want, and live without regrets.
