Second Chances....


If you're lucky in life and love, you're given a chance at some great opportunity to add quality to your day to day routine. This may be meeting someone who is your soulmate...it may having the perfect job that helps you to excel at your god-given talents and skills. Some of us take advantage of these chances given to us...some of us squander them away, only to realize years later our foolishness cost us true happiness.


Then there are some of us who squander it....but through some quirk or angel looking out for us are given that Second Chance at that same opportunity that you came across years back. Its in that second time you stop and soak in the experience and learn from it. Its at this time you realize if you have actually grown up and learned any lessons at all. You want to make sure this time you don't screw it up...you dont make the same mistakes....you 'get it' this time.


But what about those who are on the receiving end of your Second Chance? What about their second chance? Basically your second chance is entirely dependent on their open heart and soul. If you're this person....it's easy to take advantage of this situation and make the Second Chance person squirm. But I advise you NOT TO....you may be given a Second Chance one time in your life...and you'll be hoping you will be received with open arms.


If you could choose a Second Chance ...... what would it be? these days I'm rethinking it all...for I am that person on the receiving end of someone elses' Second Chance...

Tex, I hope you can come up with your answer. I'm lucky: I'm with my soulmate, we have 3 great kids, and I have an awesome life. I've got regrets like everyone else, but luckily they were never really life altering. Sounds like you are doing some soul searching, and I wish you well on that.

Hopefully, I understood what you were trying to say: 'cause I'm not real bright you know.:)

ted you're much brighter than you think. I know I write in cryptic sometimes...but without revealing too much online...but I gotta have an outlet too. Decisions will be made over the next few months on this one...and its a huge one for me. big enough to alter the rest of my life....for the better if it works out.

I hear you Tex: you alluded to something not long ago that made me wonder if something was up.

Not gonna pry: just know I'm thinking of you and wishing you wisdom to make the right choice. After all, I gotta support my surrogate Big Sis, right?
