I’ve played the game that everyone else has played from time to time: what would my life be like if . . . .
If I never married.
If I had gone to different schools.
If I had different parents, if I’d never joined the military, if I’d never had kids, if I’d moved somewhere else, if I had been born blonde with big boob genes.
But this game is not very helpful for at least three reasons. 1) Stuff happened to me and around me, which I had no control over that also helped determine who I am today. 2) I can’t change the past. And the biggest reason is 3) Here I am.
Here I am. It could be better. It could be a lot worse.
I choose to be amazed at what I see, the people I get to know, the things I get to do. The kindness of strangers. The rudeness of some drivers. Hey, I’m not perfect. And they most certainly are not either.
I got a long way to go. And I choose to be amazed.
