I thought long and hard about today’s post. I have a lot of things in my life that I would have done differently, knowing what I know now. However I have to say that it actually scares me a bit to think where I would be now and that I wouldn’t be who I am at this point in my life. Every decision I’ve made has gotten me to where I am in my life right now and has made me who I am. A little secret from me?
I have a lot of regrets. That’s just part of life. Making choices and dealing with the blowback if there actually happens to be some with a bad decision. The question of “If you could be honest with no regrets, what would you say? To whom would you say it?” makes me cringe.
Bravery is something I think is about heroic acts. Saving a life, risking one’s own life to help someone else out or doing an act that one wouldn’t normally due out of fear. I’m no hero by any means.
I’ve not done anything like running into a burning building, jumping in front of an oncoming vehicle or train to push someone out of danger. I’ve not dived into the water to save someone drowning. I’m never in a situation to save the day.
