Anyway, I found that I do in fact have some regrets. I regret decisions I made when I was far to young to know how it would impact me later. For example my parents gave me opportunities such as ballet lessons at five, piano lessons at eight, and singing lessons at twelve. My parents were never rich, but are the kind of parents that if their kids decided to do something they support you.
So I was watching some dance video's on YouTube and was thinking about how cool it would be to be able to dance like some of the amazing people who have been doing dance for twenty years. I then realized that if I had continued with dance, I would have fifteen years under my belt. Ballet is the foundation for most dances so I could've gotten in to Jazz an Hip Hop. Now here I am wondering why five year old me quit simply because it took time out of my otherwise uneventful day.
Then again at eight I was put into Piano lessons, and I did a full year because that was my Mom's requirement. I quit because I didn't want to practice. Which is sad, because I never did practice and my teacher said I was a natural. Starting again at eighteen I lost that natural ability, I have to practice. This one is less of a regret because I am now working on taking my level three exam next year. I can't help think if I hadn't stuck with it I could already be at teaching level.
Last of all singing lessons. I was in drama and school and we were doing musicals. I was convinced at this point in my life that I was meant to be an actress and singer, fueled by the Disney Chanel. I went to my first lesson and took my best friend which was a bad idea and I was scared to sing in front of her. A really dumb reason to stop.
I guess I just realized how important it is to dedicate yourself to things and follow through. I am really just sorry for all of the opportunities that God sent my way that I passed up because it was too much work.
