(This is part of Fitness Cheerleader's blog challenge.)
Life is filled with "What if?" moments. What if I were born in a different time period? What if I hadn't done this or had done that? But I don't live with regrets and choose not to dwell in the what if's. That being said, the one and only "What if?" I have thought about is "What if I hadn't gone away to college?"
The reason I have pondered that one is because my life would be so much different if I hadn't. If I hadn't left home for college, I wouldn't have met Chandra, my sole sis. I wouldn't have had so many experiences that shaped and defined me. I wouldn't have decided to move back home when I did, where I found a job that ultimately led me to my husband. Not going to Angelo State would have altered the course of my life...and I wouldn't want it any other way than what I have now.
I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. I could have saved myself some homesickness and heartache (not to mention time and money) had I stayed home. However, I wouldn't trade that decision for the world because of where it led me.
I've had similar thoughts and I'm always amazed at how every little step in my lift led me to where I am and made me who I am! Love you!ReplyDelete
