Regret what? Yes could have made , with gift of hindsight, wiser financial decisions, acquired possessions which would now be of value. Could have travelled more, been afraid less and adventured more. Deep in the amazon jungle might have discovered I was braver than I ever imagined and the world an exciting not a scary place. True but if there is to be a regret I wish I had helped others more. Tried in the abstract to make world better place through work choice but there was more I could have done closer to home. Is it too late to balance the scales? Time will tell. Each day do something for others , to help yourself heal.
Have a good day
