    Would I be any kinder?

    Would I be more open? Would I have a better job? Would I be lonely and broken hearted? Would I have more friends? These are few of the things that could be affected by bad decisions I have made in my life.

    Life in general will not change.

    But your path may change little or big. For better or for worse.

    I'm Surprised

    I'm surprised this group is not larger. Or maybe there are more people content with their life choices than I realized. I've always admired those who can say "I have no regrets." And hated them for it, also. I think those who are truly happy, are those who have choices and...

    When I Have Trouble Sleeping

    Some nights, when Mr. Sandman won't come knocking at my door, I play the game; Would've Should've Could've. It's not a health game and at times fills my head with doubts, but in the end I have my life infront of me. I tend not to look back because I am not sure if I want to see...

    I Wonder..

    Think about it all you want.

    But know that you can't undo the past and even if that special person were to come back to you. Chances are they wouldn't now be the person they were then.
