Those dreaded words: IF ONLY

If Only: 

How often have we heard those words?  If only I had listened to my parents, If only I had waited, If only I had not said that, If only we had left earlier,  If only I had reacted to that inner voice.  If only we had not made that bad investment.
If only, if only, if only.
That is over.  The one thing we can never get back is TIME.
What ever was done, was done, the main thing is to get over it and carry on with your life.  Remember: Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, only TODAY is the present and we have to appreciate this present, a gift from above, and use it to the full.  No recriminations.  Forgive yourself and move on.
Below is a painting which painted itself.  An inner yearning to visit Italy again.  Shall we make it our goal for 2017?  Then there can be no “If Only’s”
What is on YOUR bucket list for next year?
