I Have Lived A Life With No Regrets
In this life that I have lived I have no regrets, is this something that you can say, honestly? If a person says they can, then, in my own personal opinion, they are either a very cold-blooded person, or, they are a true Saint, or a liar. Personally I know that I have committed many sins in my life and I have many regrets so I simply can not say that I honestly have no regrets. I know that I am nowhere near perfect but I do hope that the vast majority of people who have met me in my lifetime do not consider me to be a cold-hearted ass. Yet I do realize that I indeed have been a selfish cold-hearted a-hole to some people and that they have every right to feel that way about me. So, do I have regrets about choices that I have made in my life, yes, without a doubt.
Life itself is a lineage of choices, turns and twists. We all have many defining points in time to where we were at a crossroads and we made a choice to go in one direction when we should have gone the other way. I am not just speaking of actual physical roadways, I am also talking about such things as which classes to take in college, or should we go to college at all or take a job at Green Giant, Deans Foods, or at the Chrysler Assembly plant, or maybe should we go into the Air Force, or the Army. There are many other choices that we make that we sometimes give little thought to, should we dance with the bleached blonde with the big fake breasts or with the little Mexican girl with the beautiful smile? What if we chose the bleach blonde and we take her home with us that night and she steals our wallet with all of our cash, our credit cards and sells our identity information as well as stealing our car while we’re sleeping. Yet the little Mexican girl with the great smile turns out to be a wonderful person who we missed our chance with because of choosing the bleached blonde.
This little article this morning is simply meant to get you to think and to hopefully bring a smile to your face, I hope that I was able to do those two things for you. I hope that you are not a cold-hearted ego maniac who thinks that you have no sins and no regrets. If you are truly a Saint, more power to you, I salute you.
