the road less traveled   Leave a comment

Do you ever think, what if I had opened door number two?  Or went down that road instead of the one I did go down?

Am I the only one who wonders about that road that I didn’t take?

And while I know it does no good to think what if?

I do sometimes wonder where I would be if I had done something different.

For instance……when I was  23 or 24 I seriously thought of going back to school to become a nurse.
IF I had done that, I would not have my younger two children.

I believe that whole heartedly.

Because the career would have been enough.

Maybe I would have had another child or two down the road, but it wouldn’t be Matt and Emily.

AND if I hadn’t had Matt and Emily, then I wouldn’t have Keira, Kayla, Aaron and Bailey.

That just seems horrific

Another example, my Cousin Sandy dated an older man whom when she tried to break up with him, he killed her and then himself.

She was 26 years old with four little girls.

IF she had never dated this man, chances are she would still be alive today…..

I just every once in a blue moon think about what might have been, what could have been…..

Don’t get me wrong I am quite content with my life.

I wouldn’t change much of anything if I could…..

I just often think of that road that I didn’t take……..

And wonder where I would be today if I had chosen differently….

Am I alone in that way of thinking?
