So I'm curious. Where could you be? What choices and decisions have you had to make?
<3 x 9001,
Even though I wish I'd made different decisions when I was a teenager (and then my early twenties - regards to ballet and finishing my law degree instead of abandoning it), I love where I am in life right now. So... I think overall - I'm fine with where I am now
I suppose it depends on if you think that choices you've made could have gone another way.
Since I became an adult, I've always lived by "Whatever choices I make are the right ones." I am where I am because I chose not to believe in anything other than what I deicde.
Sure, I had a choice to make when I decided to become a writer, but for me, there was no alternative, only what I wanted to do.
Does that make sense or does it make me sound conceited?
If I had chosen the right numbers of the lottery I would be rich. But I'm not.
Seriously, I would have been able to continue my studies and I would be a video game developper right now. But nope, I quitted them to focus on one of my dream, beeing a cop. Result ? I failed at the last test. Well I have a job now. The job itself is not good, but I work with awesome people, even my boss is the best. That guy has a golden heart.
But I don't feel at my place. I don't feel complete. I know I'm still young but if it continues like that I can't imagine the level of "boringness" (is that right ?) of my life.
So right now I'm saving as much money as I can and waiting until the good day comes for executing my plans. Don't ask me to explain its CLASSIFIED.
I think it's healthy for people to reflect on the choices they've made and how other choices might have panned out, if only to gain a better understanding of where you were as a person at different stages of life. Like one of my favorite "RENT" songs, I believe you should "forget regret, or life is yours to miss". I've made so many choices in my almost 3 decades in this life, that could have drastically impacted the course of it. Ultimately I am happy with where I am at so far though, the wisdom i've gained is priceless to me and I would not be the same person I am today if I had made different choices. I could have pursued medical school, I could be married living in canada, I could be a chess master. Instead i'm a gamer/movie/tv/anime/sports buff who has mastered the art of mastering things in an extremely unorthodox manner YAY!
