Warning! Depressing

No matter how much I have forgotten, I can still remember those pivotal moments that changed my life. I wonder if this is why we start life so naive, so that when we are reflecting; we can know exactly when we messed up our lives? Remember the moment before you made a bad choice? Wouldn't you wish you had taken a different path? The moment before you said a harsh word and wished you hadn't said it? Perhaps even wished you had picked a different battle? What good is remembering all this when there is not a thing a person can do about it? You cannot stop the sound of a bell after it has been rung.
    I wish I could go back to the moments in time that I thought I was so smart and had made different choices. Life would be so different. 

If wishes were horses then beggars would ride.

  1. Every battle, lost or won; every spoken word, bad or good; every experience... these are indeed the lessons of life. Put there so we can grow, and become better beings. The memories keep us aware so we can avoid situations, perform differently and most of all: forgive - starting with ourselves. Wouldn't you agree?

  2. I know all too well what you mean--I've been there too many times to count. But I try to learn from those mistakes, but sometimes, I just can't help it...I'm only human...Right??

    I do hope you are doing well. I've missed you--Would you believe that I'm meeting Louise/Gaye on Tuesday when she passes through my neck of the woods--I wish I could meet you too, we'd have a lot of fun, wouldn't we?

  3. There's one choice I made I wish I could go back and reverse -- but then, I wouldn't be where I am today. Regrets really serve no purpose at all, do they?

    Hope you are having a good weekend, Sharon. :)

  4. I've been there to...Wish I could take back some of the things I have said and done to. I'm a work in progress and only human :o) Hugs and Love, Jennifer

  5. I tend to believe that we start life knowing everything there is to know or that we will ever need. It is 'life' that gets in the way and sends us down those 'paths' of inquiry.
    And then we spend time trying to get back to what we had at the beginning before all the 'clutter'.
