If you could do it all over again: would you?

Every positive change in your life

begins with a clear, unequivocal decision
that you are going to either do something
or stop doing something. ~ Anonymous

If life afforded a “do-over” button or an instant replay, and you could relive the last X number of days from a specific set point (determined by you), would you? This idea stems from a novel I’m reading: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. A Sci-Fi suspense thriller, the premise begs the question of a multiverse—an infinite realm of being or potential being of which the universe is regarded as a part or instance. If presented with the opportunity, I would do it all over again: I would live more—and worry less—a lot sooner. It seems a shame that it oftentimes takes age to precede wisdom (or at least that’s the plan). But the good news is that every moment offers us the chance to make a positive change. Almost like a do-over.

Would you do it all over again?

Waiting for the curve ball

A couple of days into my ninth month of daily blogging — almost three-quarters of the year behind us — and I’m drawing another blank.  I can’t blame it on yogi brain, or lack of material.  I simply feel like I’m in a place where I’ve worked through so many curve balls that I know I’m my own worst enemy, I need to take more chances, make smarter choices, be present Today (while still holding onto the promises of Someday), avoid making assumptions or pinky promises that cannot be kept, etc.  Perhaps it’s time I start tossing in a book review occasionally (speaking of which, The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein is a fabulous read, as well as Snowbound by Blake Crouch).  Or I suppose I only need to give it another day or two and life will toss in a different curve ball.  No doubt I’ll have something new to work through and more blogs to write.

What do you do with life’s curve balls?
