I rather like the poem of the day today on the Writer's Almanac; 'Antilamentation' by Dorianne Laux.

Antliamentation
Regret nothing. Not the cruel novels you read
to the end just to find out who killed the cook.
Not the insipid movies that made you cry in the dark,
in spite of your intelligence, your sophistication.
Not the lover you left quivering in a hotel parking lot,
the one you beat to the punchline, the door, or the one
who left you in your red dress and shoes, the ones
that crimped your toes, don't regret those.

.... read the rest on the Writer's Almanac.
