Have you ever just sat down and thought about where you were 5-10 years ago? And you sit and think about where you are now? Have things spiral downwards or gotten worse? Or have things gotten much better than before? I do. I think about it all of the time.
I’ve often wondered where I would be if I had changed some things back when I was younger? If I had said “yes” or “no” could that have led me to where I am now? Ehhh, probably not. That’s why I try to NOT live by regrets. If I did let regrets consume me, I would not have my beautiful children. I would not have struggled financially and could not appreciate my little savings account now. I would not have believed in myself and could not accomplish writing and self-publishing by own book.
So, I am thankful to God for EVERYTHING that has happened in my life … the good, the bad and the ugly. If those very things didn’t happen, I would not be here today. It took me a long time to appreciate what life has to offer me. My eyes were clouded by anger, hurt and resentment for a long time. Now, I am so grateful. I still have my ‘mentally challenged’ days, however I count it ALL joy!
Until next time … be blessed!
