Friday Frills


How many times do we say something that we
immediately realized was not the right thing to say? 
How many times do we look back 
on an event and think, if only I had...
How many times do we do something 
that we wish hadn't done? 

You can't change what has been said. 
You can't change a past event. 
You can't change what has been done. 

Do you call it regret, sorrow, repentance? 
Do you think about what might have been? 
Do you relive an event the way it should have been? 

Forget about regret, and focus. 
Focus on today, 
Not on the past. 
Focus on what you can do, 
Not what you didn't do. 

The only thing to regret is living in the past. 
The only thing to feel sorrow for is 
not living each day to the fullest. 
The only thing to do to repent is 
to sincerely say, I'm sorry. 

Don't live your life regretting yesterday. 
Live your life so tomorrow you won't regret today.

I'm the worst for regretting things but it's such a waste of time! You can't undo what's been done so all you can do is try and learn from it. Besides, everyone makes mistakes from time to time anyway! xxx

Katie said...

Happy Friday! Make this weekend a good one, I have a few things planned so I've been looking forward to it all week xx

Tany said...

Wise words Sam. I try to live by them, since I have a tendency to relive my mistakes and I always end up stuck and in pain until I move on.
Have a wonderful evening,

Hi Sam! Unfortunately, it happened many times. "I wish I didnt say, I wish I didnt do or I wish I did", the fact is that you realized this and the what whould have been the best choice only later when the things couldnt be changed anymore. And u know, the only thing to do is just keeping on, moving on, forgetting about what was the past and building the future with the learnt lessons and a fully life in the present. Happy Fri my dear, kisses! xo

Christine Uy said...

There's so many times I say things that I don't mean beacause of the heat of the moment but I never regret anything in life. I always see it as a mistake I can learn from since everything in life happens for a reason. Have a great weekend hun! :)

Take care always, love Christine ~ xo

I definitely need to work on focusing on the present moment than the past and the future. I tend to look back and look too far forward too often!

miss b said...

Living in the moment, just trying to focus on today and living each day to the fullest is indeed the best advice. By the way, I love the walk in wardrobe with everything looking so organised. Enjoy your weekend.

Its so hard to live without regret. But its so true whats done is done. We must be forgiving towards ourselves.

Emilie said...

Beautiful Friday words Sam, I will remember this! As for the size of the photos you can try resizing them in photoshop (or a similar program) or the HTML-code (when you are making the post in blogger you can see the version in HTML). And I agree that your posts would be a lot longer when you all make them big (but personally I woudln't mind that haha)... Maybe a fun thing to play around with a little bit this weekend? I can't wait for you post on Monday btw - because I'm sure you'll cover the Oscars? :) Have a nice Friday! xxx

Sometimes! things happen beyond our control. We regret them and hurt people we love the most. But we have to ask for forgiveness and to forgive them too. Then we let go and move on.
