This week I’d like to share a thought that came to mind quite recently. Have you ever thought of life as a fitting/trial room? Anyone who loves to shop knows how important a fitting/trial room is in a clothing store can be .
A trial room (try-on room) is a room (with mirrors) in a clothing store where we can try out items of our liking before buying them.
We may like to try something we have never tried before just to see how we would look wearing it.
We may also try something that fits us perfectly but we may not like the color.
We may try something that we love but doesn’t fit.
We may try something the color of which brings out the best in us.
We may try something just because of the feel, the texture.
We may even try on something we cannot afford to purchase then but would love to some day.
We often end up buying only the best of all that we have tried out and we leave the shop happy with our purchase but even happier with the experience.
The same thing applies to life. Change is inevitable in life; things change, people change, circumstances change. Though it is always good to keep up with changes, we may also need to first try and find out whether that change is something we really want or just a passing fascination. Sometimes being open to change is just trying things out like in the trial room so that we can end up paying for and keeping that which we really feel is worth it and leave the rest hanging on the hanger of the trial room. A visit to the trial room always gives us the luxury of making up our minds of whether we want to embrace the change or just let it go. Giving ourselves that freedom always ensures that we leave happy and with no regrets!
Nugget of Life : “Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.”– Sydney Smith
So go ahead and live life free and with no regrets.
Have a wonderful week!
