Wouldn't Change a Thing

I've decided that I don't really have any regrets in life. I guess that's not true, I do regret not going to bed earlier last night, leaving the dishes for today, and spending all of that money on candy last Thursday. I guess that I should say that I choose not to dwell on my regrets. I believe that most of my decisions in my past have worked together to create where I am now and who I am now. I know that I have flaws (lots of them), I know that my life isn't perfect, but I wouldn't choose to be anywhere else. The thought has crossed my mind that if even one thing was changed, it would have a chain reaction and change where I am now, I'm pretty sure there is a movie about this concept out there somewhere, but I haven't watched it. When I think about some of the things that I would be missing out on;

the man I have fallen in love with,

the family I share him with (band family),

babies with books,

babies with dimples,

friends we can be ridiculous with (even when we shouldn't be),

and the 80's dying of typhoid (just seeing if you were paying attention),

I become more grateful for what I have, where I am, who I am.


  1. Absolutely!!! Good thought. Although, you got me with the 80's dying of typhoid. :)

    ...And cute kids!!

  2. I Love our family!!! The best part is that we were not given each other at birth. We are not eternally stuck because we are blood, but we are eternally the most awesome family in existence because we chose to be!! Love ya!

  3. I don't know if this is what you're thinking of, but "The Butterfly Effect" deals with that one-little-change theory. Don't watch it. My hubby watched it one night in bed, and I very adamantly, but obviously I could hear it, and even that haunts me. Anyone who cares at all for pregnant women SHOULD NOT watch it. Take my advice or leave it. :)
