No regrets…How Did She Do It?

July 06, 2020

Have you ever heard the famous song by Edith Piaf “Non! Je ne regrette rien”? (No, I regret nothing)


I’m intrigued by this song.


How did she do it? 


How did she come to terms with the good, the bad, the ugly –  everything that happens in life? 


How did she bypass all the “should have done’s” and “shouldn’t have done’s” that all of us have? 


 And all the “I wish I did’s”?


Watch below:




Once you’ve had a chance to watch it, I’d love to hear from you. What would it take to live a life free from regrets?


Leave a comment below and let me know.

    Hi Alex,
    Always love your creative ways in teasing out the nuances and truths of life in such a delightful way. And yes, ‘ I did it my way’ resonates deeply. I remember writing a haiku about choice.
    The power of choice
    Deliberate, intentional
    Examined life, breathe
    This haiku captured a critical moment in my life when I was torn in choosing between 2 matters which means the world to me. Choice gives us clarity and shows up the pathway to take with no regrets.
    Choice, courage, freedom and responsibility are all integrated… that’s another story …
    Thank you, Alex, again for your inspirational triggers !

    Lovely song!
    By age , we get wiser and wiser. For me, Thinking about the past no longer has a grip on me, simply because it becomes a prospective. What pass has pass. What I have now is my prospective of it. And I am choosing to be compassionate, and to be a student of life .
