I'm not often about the regrets, but I will say that when I was doing consulting, I landed a state contract and it was very good money. I was thrilled! With my first pay from them, I purchased beautiful diamond stud earrings for myself- I always wanted a pair. Not long after that, I became very sick, couldn't do the job and had to forfeit the contract. Other things hit at the same time, yadda divorce yadda cancer yadda, and I ended up selling things for money to pay rent. But I refused to sell those earrings! I still have them. So... should I have purchased them, no. Should I have sold them, yes! But I do enjoy them nonetheless.
