Go That Way

Sometimes I wish there were just big sign posts in my life, pointing the right path to take. (Especially if that path has ice cream too, but I digress...)

Each choice we make affects other things down the road. I sometimes try to explain this to the kids, but I guess it's something you have to live to understand. Make the choices. Live with the consequences. Figure out how to make better choices.

Don't get me wrong, I'm happy with where I am at the moment. I'm enjoying my life and I love my family. But sometimes I wonder... what if...? Do you have times where you think the same? What do you do about it?

Where are the sign posts when you need them?


  1. I often wonder "what if"...but find that it doesn't get me anywhere. And it certainly doesn't make me happy, so best to just leave it be....

  2. On the other hand, you can take the "what ifs" to an extreme level and find yourself on your, oh, 25th, 37th, 567th move in order to seek that something that is missing from your life. For those of us on the extreme path, I'll let you in on something... there is something to be said for having stability...a life with a partner and family... knowing where you're going to be sleeping in 6 months (or next week for that matter). Don't ever lose the desire to do more, new, different (it certainly makes life interesting)... but embrace what is good in your world...
