I hadn’t been around as much of late but wanted to try to be active on my page…. For now, I’ll just post something I wrote a while back and never posted.. Thanks to all my friends and followers for understanding.

A life is filled with things we might have done
Choices not taken that we later wish we’d picked
Other times there were things said or actions
In retrospect, our own behind we should have kicked.

Yet none of us are perfect so we do make mistakes
Too many times we overreact and have our minds set
Whether just a wrong course or feelings gets hurt
We can’t dwell, spending our days living with regret.

We must learn from the past and look to the future
Not everyone will accept that we can change course
Those are the ones that will never let go of doubt
All you can do is move on, not making things worse.

We look to ones that will accept us as we truly are
Realizing the person we are inside, offering a hand
Look through the windshield, not the rearview mirror
Find those that will, by your side, always stand.

    Yes, we need to let go of doubt once we have made our choices. After all, we cannot go back and change the path we have chosen.

    Take Care…
