OH CHRISTMAS TREE

OH CHRISTMAS TREE

Ahh, at last it is acceptable for a giant tree to be in the house! My favorite part of Christmas is the tree and greenery. I love the lasting smell which no candle can replicate, getting creative decorating (with black ornaments of course) and heck… […]

GOODBYE SUMMER, HELLO FALL

GOODBYE SUMMER, HELLO FALL

I’ve totally been MIA and I’m a little late on the goodbye summer train – but I have been SO over the summer heat and graciously awaiting Fall to arrive for a long time now but also soaking up our last weeks of summer. We […]

#MOTIVATIONALMONDAY

Mondays are for motivation, hurrah!

My most favourite quotes will be posted every Monday. I’m thinking keep it short and sweet and straight to the point and to put you all in great spirits for the week because we all need a little pep talk to start the week off right.  Hope you enjoy!

You’re always one decision

away from a totally different life.

In life we are all guilty of being hung-up on the “what ifs.”  We could say this statement  about almost every scenario in our lives. It applies everywhere, to everyone. But would you really be the same if life went towards your “what if.”

“What if I did better in school,” “What if we traveled more before kids,” “What if I was more social,” “What if we never broke up,” “What if I didn’t take that job,”

We would not be who we are or where we are today.

Personally, I was an awful teenager quite dependent on drugs, alcohol as well as being mentally and physically shattered. I will always say though “I wouldn’t ever change it.” I never think about “What if I didn’t go down that path.” It has shaped me into this strong, independent woman. I’ve found bits and pieces of myself, I’ve found and established morals, beliefs and my spirituality. I’ve met the right people at the right times and its how I got where I am today. I hope our children never decide to take that kind of path but hopefully from all the experiences we can teach them to be greater.

I think it is a very important lesson to not get hung up on the “what if.” Especially when learning to find yourself and accept yourself for who you are. Maybe realizing this is a crucial step to learning who you are and where you want to be as well. Past, present, future.  Don’t waste your life doting on one decision that could have changed your entire life because it already has in a different way – maybe not the way you had hoped but one day I’m sure you will appreciate where you ended up. It is all a chain reaction and the possibilities are endless.
