I pretty much figure; if I hadn’t made all those “dumb” mistakes/decisions-I wouldn’t be the wonderfully wise and compassionate spirit that I am today. Therefore, of the bazillion bad choices I’ve made, it is difficult to single out just one. Mine seem to all interconnect and develop into themeparks. However;
#1–hands down…When I was WAY too young to marry ANYONE (18) I, said NO to the first guy that proposed to me. (I know, sounds like a GOOD decision–stay with me here)Some 3 months later, I said YES to a guy who, from the time I was 15-21, turned my life into something resembling The House Of Horrors as experienced on The World’s Largest Roller Coaster. Ready for the punchline folks? (and a happy one it is) Today, 32 years later, I am about to celebrate my 3rd wedding anniversary with Guy #1. (we have been reunited now for 9 years.)
BTW-I have to pretty much agree with Diane, since that was my first thought when I read same quotes. But, gee, then I wouldn’t have had THOSE experiences. So, today, I wouldn’t be me,(and I DID go back to college) You see, now, what I mean. I’m soooo confused!
You know? I think mine would be missing the day when they taught you how to make a decision.
This may well explain to many, my affection for the George Carlin quote.
“Man, the 60’s must have been real good for you!”
George Carlin…“Outrageous Fortune”
“Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore”
Dorothy…“The Wizard of Oz”
