I'm never having a 401k again! At least not until I have a Real Proper Job. Having one now is just so much torture. I can't get my money unless I quit, but of course if I quit I'll have to spend a chunk of said money on bills because I quit! Gah! My life would be so much easier if I didn't have this overwhelming obsession with a-ha.

Ha! Nah, I love loving them. It would be easier if I still had credit cards, or if I hadn't made a million other incorrect decisions over the years. But that's life, right? No point in "what-ifs". All I can do now is go forward and make the best decisions I can in the moment. I've gotten better at that as I've gotten older, but sometimes I still end up lying in bed at night freaking out about the past.

    I do that a lot too, late at night. I just think about how I got where I am and wish that maybe ONE of those decisions had been different so I could be in a different place. But all we can do is work in the now and go forward. What's done is done :)

    You're right; I try not to get too mired in regret, but sometimes I can't help it.
