Day 13: BEDM Challenge No Cheese, Please!

Today's challenge required some reflection to make sure that I was able to find the right answer for the writing prompt. Day 13 goes like this:

 "Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be."

I have made it a rule in my life to never live with regret and while there are moments that make me cover my face with my hands I am not sorry for them. Life, no matter the ups, downs, the what-was-I-thinking-moments, is a journey that has created who and what we are as people. To be sorry for who you are is unacceptable to me, so the only thing I could think of was this:

"To my lactose intolerant self I am so sorry that I continue to sneak dairy products. Whoops."

Maybe this is an apology that I should actually be issuing the whomever happens to be around me after I sneak some milk or cheese. Hmmmm. Now that I have revealed my big "sorry" moment, what's yours?

  1. I like what you said about issuing apologies. I had a hard time as well because we have much of the same philosophy on apologies.

    1. Thank you for swinging by and leaving a comment. :) Yea, today was one that I had to think hard about. I felt kind of bad when I was like NOPE! But, then I realized that I shouldn't have to apologize for not wanting to apologize....hmmm, lol.

  3. ugh, i could SO feel you on this apology! i try to eat a plantbased, non dairy or processed diet- then the weekend comes and BOOM! 3 veggie burgers, a packaged burrito, and chocolate cake that is making my intestines explode as we speak! and yet, nearly every weekend, i repeat this nonsense... i'm hoping this weekend was the final (two pound gained!) straw!
