Switching Gears, Regrets #SwitchersRemorse

Switchers remorse @VerizonWireless #SwitchersRemorse


Switchers remorse @VerizonWireless #SwitchersRemorse

Have you ever done something in your life that you have completely regretted? Like if you could turn back time you would and that entire course of time would be the complete opposite. Now that I have a high schooler I find myself constantly telling him to not give up, slow down, be a kid…

What I am really saying is if I could reverse the course of my own high school years I would have done this,this, and this. So you do it and I will sleep better at night. It’s simply my version of living vicariously through my own child.

I gave up too easily in high school. If something wasn’t going the way I thought it should, I was ready to quit. As a matter of fact, I often did. School sports simply became a thing of the past. I was more interested in hanging out with my friends after school than joining another sport. Something you would have had to pry me away from kicking and screaming my entire childhood prior. It was easy for me to quit the dance team my junior year, because they expected so much of my precious time that I thought was better spent going to football games, rather than being a part of them.

I wasn’t thinking about my future, I was thinking about the present time. I never pushed myself to get the best grades. I just wanted to be an adult, get school over with and spend time doing “nothing” with my friends. I accomplished those goals and looking back they were single-handedly the worst decisions of my life.

Time flew by and soon enough I was out of high school. Some of my friends moved away to college. I got my wish and those that stayed behind I spent hours and hours doing much of nothing with. I had no real goals other than working retail, taking a few junior college courses and hanging with my friends. For years after high school I was pained with the realization that I threw my high school years away rushing for this… adulthood was not what I expected. It was rough living paycheck to paycheck, having to depend on other people and realizing that high school was the time I should have given it all I had.

I regret not giving it my all in school, being so quick to quit sports, the dance team, and rushing to grow up. I didn’t enjoy being a high schooler, I merely rushed through the days dreaming about growing up and moving on. I wish someone would have given me a big shake and pushed me to be a better student, not be a quitter and said “slow down Michelle be a kid while you still can”.  Would I have listened? Who knows, but I do know that I will make it a point to let my own kid know that he has someone rooting for him. Who won’t let him quit so easily and remind him that it’s okay to be a kid.

Do you have any life regrets? I’d love to hear them.
