Here we are, safely back in London and, after all the hype in New York, London feels really slow, even sleepy. It is very clear to me that the two cities don’t have the same energy, but it’s also good to be home, even in sleepy London!
I had a really good laugh at the funny mistakes that everybody described last week (See here). I especially like Lucylastica2’s one: she picked the wrong wedding –how hilarious! To top it up, I was reassured: I am not the only one to have made silly mistakes (Thank you everybody!).
So this week, I wanted to discuss life-changing mistakes – you know, the type of decisions that you wish you had never made. Again, for this blog hop, I want to explore the idea that you are at your most free when you make a mistake.
So here we are: what are the decisions I wish I had not made? Well, I have made plenty of wrong decisions, so I came up with a short list:
1. Shortly after graduating, I was offered a job in a well-known bank. I chose not to take it and decided to join the transport industry instead, helping the delivery of new trains and Signalling systems around the world. Maybe if I had worked in a bank I would be richer and life would be that little bit easier. Maybe not. I will never know…
2. My education was way too French. There were exchange programmes between my universities and foreign universities. I wish I had taken this opportunity to get out of France much sooner. I would have discovered my passion for travel and probably visited more countries. And I would have lost my French accent;
3. I should have left my job a long time ago – I am much happier now that I am gone, and there was no point in making it linger.
That said, my mistakes are part of me and, to an extent, they have shaped me into who I am. And it’s not worth having regrets, isn’t it? So I have moved on and tried to continue to go ahead (I have to admit that Chocolate and tiramisu have helped me a lot along the way)
So what about you, have you ever regretted your decisions? Please let me know…
