Behind “Unregrettable”

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

–Psalm 19:14

So what does it mean to be unregrettable? How do we live in such a way that every moment is unregrettable? Why unregrettable? And what made me choose that name for this little space on the world wide web?

Well, what does the word even mean? According to Dictionary.com, the word doesn’t exist. Whoops! Still I believe the meaning is there, even if the Internet doesn’t think so. So let’s dive deep into the wealth: for me, unregrettable means things and actions that create fond and happy memories, and nothing which causes me to look back on my history with sadness or regret.

It means going the extra mile now, and then in the future being able to smile and be at peace with your past decisions. It means carrying out profitable actions that lead to and result in blessings further down your journey. It means getting up an extra hour to spend more time writing, reading, or praying. It means putting forth every ounce of your energy into the work at hand. It means writing that letter, drawing out that bit of inspiration, painting that wall, meeting that person just to chat. It means investing time and money into actions and people that bless you in your years ahead.

Why did I choose to name this blog “The Unregrettable Moment”? See, to be painfully honest, this space started out as a place to flaunt photos I’d taken and edited. As for the title, there was no direct leading from God, no long period of decision – just thought up the word and it kinda clicked to me. After all, that’s a good standard for photos, right? To capture unregrettable moments? Riiiight…..

Things grew and changed, and I’m so thankful that God has the patience to stick with us throughout the whole process of growing into His image. I still love to take pictures, but lately I’ve been working more and my camera has seen less light of day than it did at one time. Tea has been my companion on nights when the world has slowed and I pause to settle and type. My creative outlet has been writing now more than ever, so that is what I have to share with you.

So now I apply “Unregrettable” to this space because it represents what I want to see when I look back. I want to pass on the inspirations and encouragements God sends me daily through Scripture, my photos, quotes, and books.

Live unregrettably!
