Flow Friday ~ “No Regrets”

“No regrets” does not necessarily mean that you would repeat the same exact choices you made in the past. In fact, you can be regret-less and still do something differently if given the chance. The difference is this: you’ve accepted the fact that you cannot go back in time and change things that have already
