The Three Letter Word

Dream Big
When it comes to regrets, humans are remarkable similar. At least the humans who took part in a little social experiment in New York City recently.

“On Jan. 25, Ashton Kutcher’s entertainment website A Plus uploaded a video where folks in New York’s Petrosino Park were asked to write on a chalkboard what their biggest regrets were,” writes Joseph Lamour in MTVNews.

“Some reflected on the degrees they never got or dreams they didn’t try to achieve, while other people talked about the ones who got away or the risks they didn’t bother to take,” he continues.

“Once the board was filled, A Plus noticed most of these regrets shared the same three letter word — and I used it above too, without even realizing it (which is kind of wild, actually. Humans are so different, but so alike in that way.)”

That word was “not”…chances not taken, truths not spoken, dreams not pursued, passions not honored.

It’s a powerful reminder that every day we have a clean slate to rewrite our story. Never let it be said that “not” was my legacy.
