I am thankful that I learned these lessons now.

Dear reader I am going to warn you now that this post may ramble and not make much sense however I need to get these thoughts out of my mind so here it goes.

Dear reader I am glad that I know the value of love and of having a good stable honest marriage now because I am still young enough to put the lessons into play in another marriage someday hopefully.

Every lesson I have ever learned has come with a cost that I have paid in some form. I want the price to at least be worth something when all is said and done so that hopefully I don’t have to go through the pain again.

I read a blog post tonight about a girl talking about how she wasn’t sure if she wanted to stay with her “safe bet of a boyfriend” (her words not mine) or try something different.

I can honestly say dear reader that one lesson I have learned the hard way is to be careful about leaving something good because you may find yourself stuck with something worse. Life doesn’t have a back button and you have to live with your choices, for good or bad.

I can honestly say that at this point in my life I have no regrets, I am not saying this to say that my life has turned out perfectly(if you’ve read my blog at all you know it hasn’t) I am saying that I would not go back to any point in my past except to spend more time with my grandma or my brother Shaun(RIP to them both).

I guess what it comes down to is this I had a teacher in 10th grade tell me “If you’re facing a big decision and your unsure about what to do, picture yourself on your deathbed looking back on your life if the decision is something that you wish you could’ve changed or the what ifs drive you nuts then don’t do it”. I have tried my best to live by this advice to the best of my ability.

Tell me what you think.
