No excuses, no regrets

If you do what you want, be prepared to pay for it. There will be consequences.  At the same time, NO REGRETS. If you sinned, know that God can and will forgive you. Don't make excuses. But don't spend the rest of your life in regrets. At the time you did exactly what you wanted. Someway, somehow, it will turn out for the best.
[and no, I don't know all this from experience.]

This goes for things you can't control too. Accept what happened and move on.

No regrets.

Hrmmmm, easier said than done when you think about it :)

Don't contemplate the future, much; and contemplate the past, less.

Or...

Live for the present! Consequences are the worries of tomorrow. And, as the Good Lord says, "Tomorrow will take care of itself."

Good plan! Wish I'd thought of it myself...

Einar: Very true, unfortunately.

Tragedy101: This is sort of a peace-making for me between 'live for today' and ...um...whatever-it-was. I forget, now.

What is happening NOW is what we have to focus on.

I was aware.

However, there are only two groups of people with no regrets:

1) Very young children,

2) The criminally insane.
