If I had it to do over again…

I would have to make the same journey, or else….

I wouldn’t be me!

Remember, we are on a one way ticket with no edit buttons or chance to photoshop our lives.

    As we journey through our lives,
    We all take separate paths.
    Sometimes they’re filled with sorrow,
    Other times they’re full of laughs.

    There’s no exact destination,
    We just follow where it goes.
    We travel until our journey ends,
    When that is, nobody knows.

    We all make big decisions,
    As to different roads we’ll take.
    We all learn from accomplishments,
    And mistakes that we will make.

    What will lie ahead of us?
    No one can make that call.
    But we all need someone with us,
    To pick us up, after we fall.

    In life our paths will cross,
    We won’t always be alone.
    We’ve seen what’s behind us,
    But our future remains unknown.
    ~ Jon M. Nelson

    @ Rummuser,

    Thank you for bringing this lovely poem to our attention.

    I enjoyed reading it and the sentiments expressed are both true and thought provoking.

    Ramana – Sometimes it is a blessing not knowing what is ahead for us. Keep plodding along!

    Nancy – I hope you are feeling better today. That poem kinda hit the spot for me too.

    Something I heard a long time ago which has helped me on my journey:

    “We are always stronger in the broken places.”

    A life without pain (and joy) is boring.

    WWW – My auto pilot works better than the cruising button! Sure if we didn’t have the downs, we would not appreciate the ups!

    My daughter, as you know, is bipolar. She is getting married in 2 1/2 weeks and one of the things she asked her fiance was if he would change anything about her. He said he wouldn’t. She said, “Not even the bipolar?” And he said, “No, because then you wouldn’t be you!”

    So, I agree with both you and my future son-in-law totally.

    Judy – Without mistakes, we would never learn.

    Fos – Your daughter and future son-in-law will do well, they are going into marriage with their eyes wide open. I wish them a long and happy life together.

    One of my favourite Leonard Cohen lines:

    There are cracks
    Cracks in everything

    That’s how the light gets in
