Self Reflection - The odds Are Not In My Favor!

Some days I have to wonder who I really am, and how the hell did I get here? If I would of seen the person I am now 20 years ago, hell even 10 years ago, I wouldn't have believed it for a minute. We all go through so many changes in life it's often hard to remember who we once were, what was important to us and why it no longer is.

 Everything that I thought was so important back then I now sit back and laugh at, and wonder why I even cared. The real downside to this is it makes me ask myself, will I feel the same way about the priorities in my life now 10 years down the road or will it all just be dust in the wind.
 Don't get me wrong, I'm not talking about the real important things like family but everything else, career, location, friends, associations, rants, political views etc...

Will I look back and ask myself how the heck did you ever think you could write, or why did you invest time or money into that, what possibly made that seem like the right decision at the time. I know I'm obviously not gonna know the answers to my questions until that time actually comes, but I can't help thinking about it.

I made so many poor decisions in my youth, it wouldn't be unreasonable to assume I'm still on the wrong path. At any rate I will continue traveling the road that I'm on and just hope and pray that the decisions I make today are for the most part the decisions I would make in the future.

No one is perfect and I'm sure we all have regrets, but who really wants to continue to have the same regrets, right? This has been a publicly broadcast rant on self-reflection by D.S. Duby brought to you by the letter S and the number 13. Thank you for your participation and have a great day.    


  1. LOL! I guess the best we can hope for is that we learn from our mistakes and not continue to make the same ones over and over. Besides, making new mistakes is so much more fun! :)

  2. I can't argue with that Terrye.

  3. Luckily we all learn from our mistakes---I might be at the head of the poor choice made in youth line--smiles to you
