"My regrets are few. If my life is mine, what shouldn't I do?" - Metric
I hate to go here, because I know it's been all over the media lately, but I gotta write what I'm feeling. I decided to watch Whitney Houston's interview from a few years ago with Oprah during my lunch break today. I also watched a little bit of that controversial interview she did with Diane Sawyer. I liked Whitney. She had a passion for life. It came across in everything she said and did, and I appreciate that. Did she make some mistakes and bad decisions in her life? Sure she did, but who hasn't? At least she owned them. I liked the part in the Diane Sawyer interview when she was asked what was the biggest demon for her. Her answer was, "Myself." I was also struck by her answer to Oprah when asked if she had any regrets. She said she didn't regret her marriage, her life, or anything that had happened to her because she got something from everything.
I've been experiencing bladder pain again the past couple of days, so I haven't been able to fully enjoy the idea of buying a house. The pain makes it so hard to concentrate on anything else. Sometimes when it's really bad and I'm feeling sorry for myself, I keep running the same question over and over again in my mind, "Why me?" I'm sure a lot of people would say I'm being punished for all the wrong I've done, but I don't believe that. I believe I'm going through this pain for a reason. If nothing else, it has given me perspective on life. I really appreciate the days that are pain free.
Life is made up of many moments: some of them happy, and some of them sad. We all make decisions in life: some of them good, and some of them bad. It can be so full of passion, but it can also be full of pain. We should learn to appreciate all of it, the ebb and flow of life, and we should never have any regrets. Regret is a waste. We have to take what we can from every experience and learn from it. I believe this is what Whitney did, and it's what I strive to do. Life is dynamic, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
