In This Place
Updated: May 24, 2020
It was in this place that I sat over 21 years ago and answered the question “What do you regret?” I can’t recall exactly what my response was that day but as I sit here today, I ask myself this question. I regret nothing!
You see, back then I was angry about my past disappointments, the people I loved who let me down, and the time that had passed me by while it all happened. Today I know there was a lesson in each and every one of those events. A lesson that has taught me that every storm that comes doesn’t destroy you but comes to shape you and build you up for what’s to come.
In the years since then, I’ve become a mother, a college graduate, both undergrad and graduate. I fell into a career that’s done nothing but grow and stretch me mentally and interpersonally. I’ve seen my children develop into young men and sadly I’ve married and divorced twice. But the point is, that I’ve made it full circle, to sit where I last spoke aloud my dreams and aspirations. In this place, I’m setting new intentions with a fresh new perspective and newfound wisdom.
What was that place for you? Can you go back there and reset? I encourage you to give it a try if you’re ready. You may surprise yourself what new ideas may come, in this place.
