STOP AND THINK – I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done. (Lucille Ball, TV actor, comedienne)

Some people seem to live lives of regret, always grieving over things they’ve done or relationships that didn’t work out well. Such memories are hard to deal with, but Ball encourages us to think rather about the opportunities we’ve missed to make a difference. That should spur us on to be on the lookout for the better things we could do in the future.

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity (Ephesians 5:15-16).
