I’m sorry.

I’m sorry.


My intentions when I sat down to write this post was to apologize about being MIA for the past week and update you on my life.  But, I immediately stopped myself and realized that that was what I should write about instead:The overuse of and unneeded usage of the word sorry.

As much as I wish I could have posted on here more frequently over the past week, I am not necessarily sorry that I didn’t.   I know it sounds selfish, I accept that.  But at the same time– I don’t have to be sorry for going about my life and doing things to better myself physically and emotionally.

And neither do you. #YouMakeYou

One of the main ideas of YouMakeYou® is the simple fact that you have ONE life to live, and that is YOUR life.  You get to control where you are, what you do, where you end up, who is included, what you eat, what you drink, EVERYTHING.  You should never ever feel sorry for living your life.

So, this past week when I wasn’t posting, it wasn’t because I didn’t want to, it was because I was living the more school centered, non-online, part of my life.

I moved into college for my sophomore year.

I worked my spinning job.

I simply spent time being a 20 year old with my friends.

And, yes, I also scheduled out how to balance YMY, school, and work.  Don’t worry, I’m not going any where 😉

Thoughts on ‘sorry’:

In no means do I think ‘sorry’ should never be used, it should, but, only when you are truly emotional sorry.  It makes it more meaningful, more sincere.  ‘I’m sorry’ rolls of the tongue so effortlessly now-a-days that it loses it’s meaning.   Think back to the boy who cried wolf: he cried wolf so many times that when there actually was a wolf, nobody believed him and nobody came to his rescue (that’s how the story goes, right? LOL).  That is exactly what happens when we say ‘sorry’ for every little thing.

I don’t have time to post for a week.  I’m sorry.

I can’t stop the homework I’m doing to give you a ride somewhere.  I’m sorry.

I don’t have what you are looking for.  I’m sorry.

Are you?  Are you really sorry? Or do you feel bad for staying true to yourself.

The word has become so over used and disingenuous to our world today which is dangerous because ‘sorry’ IS an important word.  I did a little challenge with myself yesterday to see how many times I said ‘I’m sorry’ and it was over 15.  And, that was me being conscious about it, imagine if I wasn’t….

I do not think there is anything wrong with limiting your usage of ‘sorry’.  It is a strong word, and I believe it should remain so.  More importantly, I do not think you should have to apologize for living your life the way you choose to.

Sorry is a powerful word: let it stay as so.

Establishing a sense of self and furthermore, self power, is one of the main focuses in the 21 Day Power Up: a step by step guide to conquering the YMY mindset.  I would love to have you join me on your journey.
