New Year's resolutions again!

Stop saying "I should have" or "I could have."

Stop dwelling on the past that should have been or could have been.

Stop regretting.

Hindsight is always perfect. There is no "control Z" or undo button to unspill the milk. Why waste energy on the past when I could live in the present or look forward to the future?

Why indeed!

As I grow older, I think about my past more. Could I have done things differently if I had taken my time? If I had been more careful?

If only.....

No! Stop it now! Otherwise I could spend the entire year wishing I could go back into my past. What would I do if I could?

If I did change my past, then I wouldn't be the person I am today. Never mind that I am full of regrets, at least I've learned my lessons. Wisdom comes from experience, the most valuable of which is learning from my mistakes!
