The Life I Have

When I feel frustrated with where I am, or who I am, I remind myself the life I have is the one I chose.

I got together with a longtime friend of mine recently. She has four kids; the younger two came into her family late in life. She talked about where she would be if she chose to put her career first and didn’t have kids.  She said: “Where would I be right now? No worries forever and ever about kids.”

I think just the opposite, where would I be if I chose a different path, to have a family, kids to worry about forever and ever.

I don’t allow myself to question or wonder what if. I remind myself; the life I have is the life I chose. Wherever I am I chose it.

I’m grateful for it, grateful for the choice.

If ever I’m unhappy, I just look in the mirror; it’s all up to me.

Best wishes for your Holidays!
