      I wished I hadn't taken almost 10 years off of running/training. I really do like it and I feel so much better/better about myself..that being said it was all a part of the journey and I just have the future

  10. #dailymission-all the time but I am slowly evolving to becoming more true to myself and taking the leap. Life is too short to carry regret or to fear regret. It is all experience.

  16. #dailymission - Are there any opportunities you wish you hadn't passed on? None that I can think of right now. I'm pretty satisfied with the choices I've made in life.

  17. #dailymission Absolutely not. Every opportunity I have not accepted has been a learning lesson, the same is true of the ones that I have accepted. As long as I'm striving to be, and becoming... read more
