July 2nd -  Don’t be sorry, be sure

Feeling sorry for yourself, and you present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have. 

Dale Carnegie

We tend to go through life with many regrets, or things we think we should be regretting, because of what others tell us. Life shouldn't be this way. We are not supposed to live life with regrets at all because, as we've been told, everything teaches us a lesson.

When things don’t go as planned, or we allow our insecurities to creep into the present moment, saying I’m sorry. can be the easy path out of awkwardness.

 Never feel bad about standing up for what you believe in.  It can be tough sometimes, but there’s nothing wrong with sticking to your guns.  Don’t let anyone make you feel bad for being human.

Being the best we can be, taking responsibility for our own success and taking care of ourselves is the premise behind No Apologies Necessary


It is better to be safe than sorry.

So true we can go through life with regrets and life is too short to have too many of them. I think it is good to learn from mistakes we have made and then try to not let them get us down too much but keep moving forward.



I am always being put down around here for "standing up for what I believe in." But I will never STOP doing it. It is GREAT advice you've given out today.

A heartfelt, "I'm sorry" can make all the difference? ...Sometimes even saying it to ourselves then moving on.
Great post.
