If I had my life to do over then would it really be Me ? It would certainly be some other person. doing other things, living other life and to me seems a bit scary. Life gave me a choice to make my choices and I did - good or bad. I am a better person by learning from all that went wrong and by making the best of all that was beautiful.
There was a time when I felt that I wish I could live my life all over again and make it better than what I am living but then it would be a new beginning and in no way I will be able to compare it to this one. I won’t even have any memory of this life. It will have its own challenges, pains, joys, mistakes, sacrifices. It will be a new roller coaster ride.
Certainly there are things I wish were different. Some of them I can change now and am doing it as best I can.
Sometimes one rides the roller coaster and in the end gets off to find the treasure. I feel I have been given a chance to live my life again. Start afresh.
However, I do sometimes feel that IF I had my life to do over I would love to be the leather clad, tattooed, biker chic who hangs out with tough guys and gals, is carefree and takes no crap from no one. Single, self-willed, independent woman who lives for herself and does what she wants. Not afraid to try anything new. Not afraid at all.
I think I miss out on adventure, travel and all that now. Someone not chained by anything . Yes, one thing is for sure , even with this tough adventurous life I would never trade my heart for anything I guess I would be just as loving and caring, just as much in love with life, an incurable romantic as I am now. This is what makes me who I am and I still have a life ahead to do at least some of the things I wish for.
So, here’s to present , to the woman I am today and to life.
