No Regrets

Though my fellow Italian-American Frank Sinatra crooned, “regrets, I've had a few, but then again, too few to mention,” I am confident when I say I have no regrets.

Wouldn’t it be great to go back in time and change something that happened? The problem is, if we changed something we didn’t like, it could affect something that did happen to us that we did like. Plus I thought the movie Groundhog Day was a little annoying anyway.

There are a few things in my live that I wish I didn’t do or I wish turned out different or better, but there’s plenty more things that I am extremely proud of and thankful for. From being a DJ to managing my college radio station, to spending time in Louisville, Kentucky during a basketball national championship, to meeting my best friend and marrying her, to being president of the Boston Jaycees and speaking to a packed audience at Belfast, Northern Ireland City Hall, to experiencing the Patriots and Red Sox winning it all, to all of the people who have been with me along this journey... these are just a few of the things that have made it a great life, and there’s a lot more living to do.

So why am I reflecting? Today is my 40th birthday. I wrote this ahead of time and post-dated it to today and the time I was born in Dunkirk, New York… yes, that’s where the name of my business comes from. Though I am not worked up about hitting the big Four-Oh, it is nice to have this opportunity to look back and be thankful.
