Mistakes or choices
The weather is marvelous! It’s been about 3 weeks now of not turning the tv on until late afternoon through out the week. It really is amazing how much more engaged I am with the things around me. At this point in my life (the age of 30). It’s crazy because I catch myself saying oh just a few years ago when in reality that few years was really like 15. At any rate I have been trying to look back on the life that I have lived up until now and I realize that life doesn’t stop no matter what. I am coming to the realization that there really are not any mistakes in life. There are choices… The choice might not be considered a good choice by some, but it is a choice none the less. It is called living the life you choose to live. I look back on my life and the choices that I have made or “mistakes” as some would call them, and without each and every single choice I wouldn’t be where I am today. I think we throw this word around a lot (me included) It is my goal to stop doing that. It is my goal to just allow people to live. I am learning more and more that what works in my house doesn’t work in yours and viseversa. I think it is so ingrained in our heads from an early age that things need to be this way and only this way that it is hard to break out of that stigma. It’s okay to make choices that others wouldn’t make… The key is to own up to the choice and learn from it good or bad… The choice can’t be used as a crutch in any situation. I assure you eventually you will make the choice that is right for you… because I can assure you the choices that are right for me aren’t going to be right for you. All of the choices I have made have lead me to where I am at at this moment and It is fabulous!
Plus it’s healthy to grow and change as life happens. I don’t do the same things I did when I was 20… Just like when I was 20 I wasn’t doing the same things I did when I was 10, and I am fairly certain that I won’t be doing the same things that I do now when I am 40. That is okay… That is healthy… The key is to have an open mind and an open heart and accept things for what they are.
