    Isn't it funny how we end up becoming the

    things we said we wouldn't? How different our worlds are now because of the choices we've made? Why have we let the world change us so? What has caused this change in our hearts and souls? Why do we allow ourselves to no longer be happy with our lives? I wish I knew

    I play this "game" with myself daily.

    How radically different would my life be had I made one or two different choices? It's a cruel game.
