I love finding a piece that resonates with me. Even if it speaks to me about a time that’s long past. The things we carry inside, some good and some bad. Blissful moments and pain. Sometimes finding a piece that resonates not only gives us a chance to reflect but it lets us know we are not alone.
I love this!! Though I have always said I’d never change anything in my life, maybe if I knew then what I know now, I could have spared myself some pain. I really do believe that everything we experience molds our future selves. However, I do think that sometimes I allowed things to transpire entirely too long.
Take the lesson and everything for what it is and grow from it. Do not stick around making excuses and subjecting yourself to more unnecessary pain.
What advice would you give your 20-something self?
Thank you to all the veterans for their sacrifice. Thank you to my favorite veteran, my Dad.
