Why I don’t regret anything, ever

Well, this is an interesting topic, coming from a 17-year old that hasn’t even started living life completely on her own terms, but hear me out anyhow, I’ll keep it short and sweet.

I don’t regret anything, not past mistakes, past relationships, past actions, or even encounters.

Believe me, my face still gets red with embarrassment when I think about some past events, but I still don’t regret it, I wouldn’t want to change a thing.

And then there are times that I do regret my actions or words, but only for a short while. I quickly wash them off with these beliefs…

Three beliefs I have that keeps me from feeling regret:

🌸 The belief that everything happens for a reason.

Anything we experience has a reason behind it, even though we might not always see the reason right away. Only years later you discover that it made you stronger somehow, or that it changed your thinking for the better.

Life is designed to push us forward, and sometimes uses setbacks to launch us forward with greater might and speed.

🌸 The belief that I can’t change my past.

(however, I have the power to change my present and future)

It already happened, and it happened the way it did, and unless I build a time machine to travel back in time, there is no use fretting over what could have been or shouldn’t have been said or done.

🌸 The belief that I was acting/speaking accordingly to my emotions and thoughts at that time.

It’s only after doing, thinking, or saying certain things that we realize that we shouldn’t have said what we’ve said, think those thoughts, or act on our emotions in the way we did. Guess what, it’s too late now… yet we have the choice to be better.

If I had to go back in time and relive my life, I would do everything exactly the same, it made me into the woman I am becoming and into the young lady that I am.

Why regret something you have no power of changing?

I hope you enjoyed today’s post.

Much love and abundance. I hope you have a blessed day.

  2. Lieflik, ek stem saam met jou. Net 17? genugtig, jy spreek wyse woorde, goed wat vir ons almal belangrik is. En ja, my emosies laat my soms skryf wat ek liewer nie moes nie. Ek sien uit na die boek, dit titel trek my.

  3. Dankie Tannie, ek waardeer dit baie.
    😂 Ja Tannie, was nog altyd mentaliteit gewys ouer as wat ek moet wees, maar soms wonder ek.
    Aai Tannie, ek kan nie nog meer saam stem met hierdie stelling nie, soms laat dit my só in die verlee.
    Ek hoop die boek is die titel werd, nog baie werk wat voorlê, maar ek sien uit vir die uitdaging.

    Altyd aangenaam om van Tannie te hoor, ek waardeer die ondersteuning opreg ❤❤

  4. It’s taken me to 51 years to TRULY learn to let go of many regrets. In the hurriedness of life, a career, kids, failed relationships, failed health, and the list goes on, it’s in the moments of adversity that I grew into the soul I was meant to live through. Through embracing self-love, setting appropriate boundaries, and accepting forgiveness, I found true freedom. It’s liberating! Keep up the marvelous writing and reflections. Your tribe is rooting you on! ❤

  7. Dankie Tannie, van n Afrikaanse onderwyser is dit die beste ding om te kan hoor. Ons is n klein groepie in die klas, en ek moet sê dat ek n spesiale plekkie het vir my Afrikaanse onderwyser, sy lê soveel klem op my opstel werk, sy het my talent passie gegee.

    En geen wonder Tannie se skryfwerk is so kunstig en goed nie!

    Ek voel taal onderwysers ken die leerders die beste. Die laaste ruk voel ek n roepping, as ek dit nou so moet stel, om n afrikaanse onderwyser te word. Ag maar daar is nog n ruk om te besluit, want sover het ek als in plek om n rekenmeester te word.

  8. Hmmm, jy het goeie toekomsplanne. Kinders kan baie stout wees en skool hou baie sleg maak. Maar as jy wil skool hou, gaan ‘n kantoorpos nie vir jou werk nie. Ek het nooit self geskryf nie – maar dit wel geniet om my leerders aan te moedig om goeie opstelle te skryf. En natuurlik het ek redenaars geniet.

  9. Dankie vir die waarskuwing 😉 oeff nee, as ek moet kyk na hoe die onderwysers soms sukkel met die kinders wil ek in n diep gat inkruip.🙈 Dankie vir die advies.
    Altyd lekker om meer vanaf Tannie te leer ❤
