Latin translation:mihi non paenitet
Explanation:
Dear Melissa,

a way to put it in Latin. Hope it serves. It is a verbal construction:

paenitet means "to regret", and it is impersonal. This means it doesn't change regarding to the number or voice of the verb. It needs a dative subject.
Since the subject is "I", "ego" in Latin, dative of "ego" is "mihi".

Mihi NON paenitet.

Non is "not".

"I do not regret"

Hope it helps!
