This Too

Open your left hand. Look at your palm.  Now look in yourself, find all your regrets. Pull them out and place them in your hand, organized or in a bundle it doesn’t matter.  Now look at them, learn from them, study them.  Don’t fear them, don’t hate them, don’t try to define what you could have done differently.

Now relax your mind, close your eyes, and let your fingers curl up and settle into a fist covering the palm of your hand.  Hold your regrets firmly for a moment, knowing they are in the palm of your hand. With closed eyes take a deep breath, allow your fingers to uncurl and blow these regrets from the palm of your hand.

Now you are free to move forward.
