You don’t know what would have happened if you made different choices; if you said different words; if you walked a different path. Redoes only exist in movies. There really isn’t a second chance on anything. Be it that you may be able to continue on with something that you thought was over or lost, but it continues on. You can not retract what happened before that point. You must move ever forward.
While there are many moments that could have drastically changed our lives if things were different, it is good that we do not have “save” points in our lives to fall back on. Otherwise life would lose it’s luster, it’s glory.
Life is devastating. Life is brutal. Life is cruel. Life is painful. Life is messy. But.. Life is wondrous. Life is mysterious. Life is expression. Life is delightful. Life is beautiful.
The road diverges… again and again.
