My New Year's Wish
I think about the decisions and choices that I have made over the years. Would I go back in time and change things if I had the opportunity?
Well, I wish I hadn’t gotten married the first time around so that I would have never gotten divorced, but then I wouldn’t have my beautiful baby boy, Ronnie.
I wish I wouldn’t have gotten in tons of debt in my 20’s but then I would have never felt the joy of getting out of debt and learning how to be credit smart.
I wish I would have been less enabling with my brother Roger who is serving a six year prison term for methamphetamine, but… prison has given him a second chance at life.
Dare I say my personal mantra is “No Regrets?”
Absolutely not! This statement, although appealing in many regards, embraces the dumb theology that “everything happens for a reason.” Without regret, there is no reason to improve.
I wouldn’t go back and change anything because my journey, although bumpy, has been a fascinating ride. Garth says it best! “My life is better left to chance. I could have missed the pain but I’d of had to miss the dance.”
My New Year’s wish is to dream bigger than I ever have done before with no sense and no reason. I want to permit my mind to take that leap into the realm of the impossible to believe I am capable of anything my heart and my mind can agree upon.
You can borrow my wish. I love you. Learn to develop the power within you. Be senseless. Be unreasonable.
