I’m always thinking about what could have been, might have been, would have been….it consumes my thoughts before bed and when I first wake up. I have tried to quell these thoughts but it’s nearly impossible.
Had I only done X then Y would have been different. Case in point – had I actually stuck with Weight Watchers when I first joined (2004) I could be years into a healthier life instead of still struggling with weight loss.
Alas – these thoughts lead me down a dangerous rabbit hole …. until I see things like this:
One of my favorite sayings has always been ‘Everything happens for a reason‘ ~ but I feel like sometimes you use it as a cop-out to avoid your true feelings. Am I disappointed I didn’t get my act together sooner? Of course! Am I happy it led to this blog and bloggy friends? Of course! Had I not met said bloggy friends (Jess and Jo!) I wouldn’t have found barre n9ne and fallen in love with the barre method. It is legit my favorite form of exercise EVER. I sweat… a lot, I’m never bored, I feel strong, but not exhausted beyond belief. It’s amazing.
So next time you’re thinking “If only X then Y” – consider the quote above!
You are exactly where you’re supposed to be at this moment in time.
