    My (not So Perfect) Friday

    There are a couple of phrases I believe a man (who’s been in any kind of permanent relationship with a woman) learns to hate. One of those has to be: “I’ve been thinking/wondering/pondering over . . . . “. I realized very early in my married life that those words are...

    Of course I have. Everyone has made mistakes in

    their lives. It is impossible to go through life and get everything right on the first try. It just doesn't happen.

    I've grown to accept

    that I don't make mistakes but mere strategic disadvantages and should make a plan to win the battle.

    Mistake #73523: I once agreed to go out on a

    date with a woman that my mother had set me up with because she thought we'd be perfect for each other. Three weeks later I was given an easy out when the woman was sentenced to six months for credit card fraud. Mom never tried to to take much of an active interest in my...

    Perhaps God wanted us to make mistakes.

    The more the better. Those who truly love us will believe in us and continue loving and forgiving. Perhaps it's how God makes us ever so wiser and thoughtful.

    I wish I could turn back the hands of time.

    There are so many things I would do different. That living for today and not worry about tomorrow. Well tomorrow does come and a regret some of the decisions I made. The nice ladies that I treated badly. The bad choices that I made. My only hope is for a new tomorrow

    They say life is a series of important choices.

    .. If this is the case I've made a lot of bad ones.

    I'm not really sure what to do next.

    . should I try and fix the past? Or should I move on, and try to forget? I don't know what I'm doing, and I don't know what I should be doing different.

    I have made mistakes.

    I truly believe we all have from time to time. My wife too has made mistakes, but you would never know it. Maybe my single biggest mistake was to treat our kids while growing up in a more mature manner with respect. Because the end result now is 4 children who have no respect...

    I didn't want to rush things.

    Big mistake! It's something I have never done before and it's really embarrassing! I forgot to remind myself to slow down, take things slowly. If only I could go back I wouldn't be so quick to reveal the truth.

    If I could go back and do my wrongs right.

    I don't think I would. Because I have this big beliefs that everything happens for a reason. And one thing in the past is changed it could change my entire life around!! It scares me honestly. Even the worst of thing happen for the best I guess. Not everything can be good.

    Note to self: When typing "Google Docs" into

    your browser on a computer at school, it is pertinent to check spelling before hitting search. Because apparently "Google Dics" is not academically related at all.
