Regrets–I’ve Had (More Than) a Few

frizzy-hairAs I get older, I try and live life with as few regrets as possible. I mean, what’s the point? It’s not like anyone can go back and get a do-over.

Yet, try as I might to rise above past mistakes and missteps, there are a few things I really would wipe away had I a choice.

Take home perms, for example. Please. My mother inflicted them on me as a child to counteract my pin-straight hair. At the time, I thought I looked like Shirley Temple. I did not.

Read my latest in Women’s Voices Magazine to discover a few of my other regrets. And thanks for trying, Mom. Even if it was a lost cause.
