Where do I want to be? That was a question recently asked of me. The honest answer is, I don’t know. I mean I look at my life and it’s pretty fulfilling, but there are still things, secrets that I long for. I often think, if I had only done this, my life may have gone differently. But in all practicality, those wises are long past the point of realization. So, I’m left with a lot of what if’s, a shit ton of wishes, and a nasty pile of what could have been.
But life doesn’t have to work that way. While obligations and responsibilities have their place, for us abandoning who we are simply isn’t in the cards. I suppose this could leave us living very unhappy lives. But our lives are what they are, so we take what we have and create a livable situation.
It would so lovely to live in the paradise we’ve created in our dreams, but that world simply isn’t real. The best we can do is change a bad situation for the better. For those of us that have live our lives’ we know the truth. We've made the decisions we had to make, yet we survived. We rebuilt a love that was abandoned, and we know it will never change. That is a dream turned into reality. So while life can hand us moments of pain, true love has a way of living forever.
