Have you ever thought that if you could just go back to one specific point in time, you would make a completely different choice, and this would change the path of your life that lead to where it is now?
I have several of those specific points.
Sometimes I find myself in a position where I am actually mad at myself for choices I made. Not that they were ones where I was in trouble or danger. Just choices where the heart was over the head. I found myself in a desperate spot where staying seemed like the only choice. I look back now, and wish I could tell the foolish girl that I was to stop and think. I would tell her that there is so much more than the little world she is in at the moment.
I fear that some choices I made are causing effects that are trickling down upon my children now. One of the best things I can do is always be honest with them. Tell them that nobody is worth sacrificing your own happiness. I have to make sure they know that their own dreams are more important than anyone else’s.
I may not be able to go back in time, but I can start from now and change my path.
