I had a dream the other night in which I felt regret. Regret is awful. I've had this dream before.
In the dream, I am on a beach vacation. Suddenly I realize that I have spent a lot of time doing things other than going to and enjoying the beach. There is limited time left and there is nothing I can do about it. I regret so much that I didn't spend more time at the beach as I had intended.
I love beaches and I long for beach vacations, year round. For me to go on one and not make the most of the beach is horrible beyond words. I did spend too little time at the beach at the start of a vacation last year. I thought of this recurring dream then and got my act together and myself down to a nice beach chair. I'm glad I did.
For me, this dream is a cautionary tale to do what I enjoy now and not end up with regret later. I'm not always good at this (at all) but this dream reminds me of what is it stake. I hope we can all make the most of our time at the beach, in whatever form the beach takes for each of us. Enjoy!
