    At the 7 AM meeting this morning they read from Bill who says “guilt is not good but a decent regret is” Huh?

      That does not sound like the Bill I know. You work through both your guilt and regrets so they aren’t baggage, right? The only way I can differentiate between the two is that often you can repair damage that is causing guilt whereas regret is often about something cannot be changed. I’d say both are wreckage and need to be cleared away, right?

    That’s a pretty good take on it

    You know, this is a really neat concept–summing up your day in six words. Got to think on that one. This one felt like it could have come from the past…say Vietnam?

      That is a fascinating take! For me, those physical things were all illusory mental things.

      I love the exercise. I am constantly finding myself wanting to use 10 words or 12 words or feeling it’s too complex, and the worst is when I really need 7 words, so each word becomes far too critical. Some work, some are bad, but it is a fun exercise.
