Where did I go wrong?
Perhaps, I didn‚Äôt.¬† Maybe the road was just a little bit different than I imagined.
Do I have any regrets?¬† I don‚Äôt know.¬† I would like to say I don‚Äôt, but I just don‚Äôt know.¬† Only time will tell, I suppose.¬† Time will be the final judge. It will be the trial to which my life experience is subjected.¬† I cannot yet say if I have any regrets, for it is too soon to tell.¬† It is entirely possible that one event that at the time of its occurrence may have seemed unfortunate, but ultimately in the end served a greater purpose.
I wish I could tell the future.¬† But that would take all the fun out of the journey.¬† After all, is it not the journey that matters?¬† When one reaches the end all that can be said is that they did it, they arrived.¬† When responding to the question of how they got there is when the story is told.¬† It is in the journey where the legend unfolds.
So much has yet to be seen, to be discovered, to be determined.¬† But are things really ever determined?¬† Is there an end all be all answer?¬† Can things not change?¬† The world changes, people change, hearts change.¬† It has been said that change is one of the few constants in the universe, so why do we resist it?¬† Why do we not just embrace it and go with it.¬† Why do we not allow it to just happen?¬† Oh, but we do.¬† Don‚Äôt we?¬† Sometimes we even force it to happen.¬† We force it against the flow.
So what is good and bad?¬† If we desire change does it mean the current state of affairs is bad?¬† Or do we just desire something different?¬† Do we ever wish to change good things?¬† Do we know what we want?¬† Are we just on a journey to discover, to grow, and to learn with hopes that in the end things will work out favorably?¬† What if they don‚Äôt?¬† Do we then fail or has the journey itself been enough to justify success?
