Happy Where I Am
overheard someone the other day wishing she could go back to her
early twenties and start her life over. That got me to thinking...if
it was possible, would I go back? And to what age?
certainly wouldn't do over my teen years, since I have many fond
memories of high school, dating, spin the bottle in my basement, my
first job, and fun with friends. Although I would like to send
myself a message to keep my red '69 Camaro instead of trading it in.
are a few decisions other times in my life that I might change, but
everyone has those wishes. Eventually everything turned out ok, so I
must have learned from those mistakes. Who's to say what else would
have changed if I had done something differently?
pretty sure that I wouldn't go back and start over if given the
chance. I like where I've been and I'm pretty happy where I've
landed. This reflection on whether to do life over gave me
inspiration to enjoy what I have, where I am, right now.
is the person who knows what to remember of the past, what to enjoy
in the present, and what to plan for in the future. ~ Arnold H.
