Don’t regret not saying something!

Don’t regret not saying something!

Today, we have another inspirational post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog at and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's first video on YouTube 

Don’t regret not saying anything. I’ve had a few moments where I’ve just had to say something, either to voice how strongly a particular situation has made me feel or just because it was a now or never moment. If I hadn’t said anything, I knew I would regret it and the other person would probably never know. Life is so precious that I don’t want to regret something that I had the opportunity to say or do. The counter-argument to this is that you may not feel the same way by the morning. But if the conviction is strong enough to make you feel it, it must mean something to you.

You have the power to change anything at will, those obstacles we have no control over are the real blocks. Unless it is a physical issue, there is nothing there to stop you. At any time, you can decide to change because you need to and/or want to. Please remember that everyone goes through different anxieties and there is an anxiety they would not speak about, but there are always anxieties or worries on people’s minds. You may find out what it is, and may not think it’s very important but from their circumstance it may be the be all and end all. You’ve got to respect that everyone has different priorities and different circumstances to contend with. So just be helping hand or a listening ear for them when they need it. No one’s life is plain sailing; just be there for them when the waves rock overboard. There’s nothing you can do to stop bad things from happening, you can only be there for your friends when they’re in need.

Have no regrets. The only you regret when you’re older are regrets you have from when you’re younger and had the opportunity to do them. The things you look back at and wish you had done in the future could be the things you have the chance to do now. So try not to leave regrets in your path so take every chance while you can.

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.

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.
