So many times I have said, or thought to myself, “I wish I could go back to undergrad and do it all over again, there are so many things I would do different.” I think I would have a totally different major, possibly attend a different school, take advantage of more opportunities, etc. Yeah, yeah, I know, “Shoulda, woulda, coulda…” But then when I think about it, my life’s journey probably would not be filled with the awesome people I met along the way. Okay, well some of them I could do without, but anyway…
So many times I think I tailored my life to fit other people’s expectations. I spent a lot of time making other people happy, and myself not so much. Fortunately I realize that I have to live MY life, not someone else’s idea of what my life should be. While I wish that I had come to this realization about 10 years ago, better late than never!
A few weeks ago, I found the following gem posted over at The Southern Belle. It spoke volumes to me, and was a reminder that I have to continue to take charge and live MY life to the fullest.
What do you think? Have you ever found yourself tailoring your life to fit someone else’s roadmap?
