Don't regret

Don't regret

Here is another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog at www.stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's first video on YouTube  

'I don’t regret anything I have done or anyone I met. There was a reason for every one – either they’re long lasting friends or they’re to teach me about distance or to show me that holding onto something isn’t worth it.

I only regret the time I wasted not making the most of every moment – when, at uni, I used to stay in every night – not making anything happen when I could have.

You never know what could happen.

Don’t waste it.

You only get one chance. So go be free. No one has the right to tell you how to live. I know the future may appear dismal right now, but I promise somewhere there is a star waiting to shine above you.

In life, there are 3 things you need:
  • A wishbone;
  • A backbone;
  • A funny bone ;) 

You need to humour yourself – make yourself laugh. Whatever that may be. Take life one breathe at a time. And it might hurt, but how are we supposed to appreciate things when they are good if they don’t get bad? Although sometimes it seems like the bad totally outweighs the good, but we all go through life at different stages. Never lose sight of your dreams.

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried.
