Edith Piaf, “Non, Je Ne Regrette…”

Edith Piaf – “Non, Je Ne Regrette…”

Exactly! Live it! Own it! Be it!become it! Keep moving forward! As Edith Piaf proclaimed “will power” & love is all you need. I would like to add hope and opportunities to Piaf’s life’s essentials of love & willpower. With no regrets – hard lessons learned for past mistakes – we keep walking onwards… March on! March on! Hope allows us to believe in ourselves, as we live our lives authentically with no regrets! Always learning, suffering and growing wiser.

_________________________________
Persistence in the face of adversity!

If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.
William J. Clinton
