In today’s episode of Car Conversations with Tiffany, I am discussing 5 things I regret not doing sooner in life.
I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on my life and how I would like for it to look moving forward. This process required me to revisit the past in order to move forward.
We tend to lose confidence in ourselves when dealing with setbacks, failure, and one of the biggest culprits…fear! This eventually causes us to not do certain things and later regret the fact that we didn’t do it.
I hope that you will stop cutting yourself short and will learn to move past regret and live a more satisfying life.
Below are a few tips I discussed in today’s episode.
Ways To Begin Moving Past Regret?
- Forgive yourself for the things you didn’t know you needed
Learn to put the past in the past and move forward with what you know and have within your reach now. Take time to reflect on lessons you’ve learned in life and use those lessons to keep moving forward. In Episode #1 I discussed figuring out who you are now. You can take a listen HERE.
- Try something new without seeking the advice/opinion of others
For years I depended on the opinions of others when deciding if I should or shouldn’t do something. From hairstyles or what I should wear to should I pursue a business endeavor. Now, I do what feels right to me and if I get it wrong I remind myself that I can try something different the next time. We don’t need the approval of people. We have to learn to trust ourselves and God and only seek His approval.
You will never know what will happen unless you take a chance at it.
- Get out of your own head and out of your own way.
I used to blame everyone and everything that was happening in my life except myself. Then one day I realized that I was the person who was standing in my way. It was my belief system that needed to be revamped. I had to be mindful of the people and information I was surrounding myself with.
If you’re finding yourself in your own head. Ask yourself what is this thought telling me that I need to know or pay attention to? What is this thought telling me that isn’t helpful. What will I choose to believe and what will I choose to do with this thought.
- Be your authentic self and love who you are now
We can easily get lost in who we are not, what isn’t right about us, and will begin hiding behind the person we really are. If we do not love who we are, then we rob others of the opportunity to love and appreciate who we really are.
I had to learn how to be a good friend to myself first, then I became a better friend to others.
Being in tune with yourself and learning to love who you are teaches you how to be more compassionate with yourself and you learn to accept the good and the bad a lot easier. If you are looking for ways to learn to love yourself, then you should definitely read this post where I discussed 5 tips on how to love yourself.
These were just a few tips, but there are so many more that I could’ve discussed.
I’ll be back next week to chat with y ‘all and I promise to try to my very best to keep it to under 15 minutes.
But wait, safety first!
Buckle up and let’s chat sis. It’s just the two of us in the car.
I would love to hear from you. What is something you regret not doing sooner in life? How are you learning to move past regret?
