I've been thinking about regret.
I have a line in one of my songs, "regrets and all they cost"
Things I have and have not done.
Things I have and have not said.
Roads not taken.
It's a punishing way to live-with regret.
This feeling of sorrow for a poorly made decision or the regret of having not made that decision at all.
I'm not sure there is a quick fix or a switch to be flipped.
I have at times, written down my regrets, built a bonfire and sent them up in smoke.
Only to build a new pile of regret.
Is having regret punishment, punishment for a life we don't feel we deserve, or it is just fear in disguise?
What would life look like, if I chose powerfully, knowing that every decision I made was made with intention using the knowledge and wisdom I had available to me? What if I released my seemingly lifelong commitment to regret?
Would that taste like freedom?
I have a new album coming out soon, I am not going to regret telling everyone about it
