There is an amazing song by Edith Piaf, the fantastic Parisian singer, “Non, je ne regrett rien,” “I regret nothing.” To live a life without regrets means a lot of different things to different people. For me, it has been important to “keep my side of the street clean” which is my way of saying that if I have done something that has resulted in hurting someone I do what I can to take responsibility for my part and if possible, make amends. To not have regrets in my relationships is one of the principles I try to live up to every day.
I also want to show up for my life, my dreams, to live a life that demonstrates courage, even if some of the things I attempt do not work out. Life is not about winning or losing, it is about BEING the best you can be, no regrets.
“Today I will examine where I might have regret in my life and make a commitment to be courageous enough to deal with those regrets to the best of my ability.”
