One change...

You know the genie and the three wishes granted after rubbing the magic lamp? What if you got to change one thing in your life? That one thing in your life can be at any point in your life up until now, what would you pick to change?

Many upsetting things happen in our lives. Some things just make more of an impact than others. I often wondered if given the chance to change something, what would I pick. Knowing that if you change one thing it could effect the rest of your future. Kind of like the Butterfly Effect with Ashton Kutcher. "Change one thing and it changes everything".

The last few years have had some "rough" roads that were traveled. It was at this point that I usually found myself reliving my life and what I should have done. Yes, that's depressing and all, but it was theraputic in a way. Only because I realized that all these things that have happened in my life have taught me a lesson. Of course these lessons were not noticed at the time, eventually I caught on. I always thought that I would change the fact that I was shy in school...where would I have been now if I wasn't so scared to talk with other people? I think I would not have been so scared to go away to college and now would actually have the degree I wanted.?But at what cost? Not the same husband or child? These life journey's made me who I am today. I am a stronger person for having had to drive on the rough, hilly, bumpy roads of life. Now knowing and realizing that everything happens for a reason, I don't think I would change any thing.

So if a fairy godmother, genie or angel came asking, I would have to pass. Would you?
