I am not the person I planned to be

At the tender age of 13 I had my life all planned out.

I knew exactly how I wanted my life to take shape and I definitely knew who and what I wanted to be.

With my next birthday minutes rather than hours away I find myself contemplating:

 

1/ What did I want to do with my life?

2/ Did I suceed?

3/ If not then why not?

4/ Have I replaced my childhood fantasies with something better and more meaningful?

5/ Where do I go from here?

6/ Am I a better or worse person for all the changes I have experienced?

 

Have you ever questioned the choices you have made? And if you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?

It is human nature to wonder “what if…” In fact , it is by asking myself that question that the myriad stories I imagine unfold and become more compelling.
The one thing I would change: I would have continued to write from high school and would have pursued publishing instead of being discouraged by rejections and then side-tracked by the responsibilities of marriage and motherhood. If I would have poured my creativity onto the page instead of worrying about money, I know I wouldn’t still be waiting to break into the published realm.
