Nablopomo – March- Day 4 – In a Word – Count your blessings

Today I came across an old friend  of mine - Old friend as in someone I knew in school and all the way through the period of my life where I had a choice about what and where I wanted to go with my career.

I am a very hands on person and tend to buck the system as much as I can get away with so coming across this person today made me think of the “Road Less Travelled” as we both went in totally different direction with our choices, although we initial started out together on the same course.

After the normal hugs and kisses we spend a little while catching up on the decade or so that we have both spend carving out our own “little niche in society”…

He’s doing great and still seem to be the same fun loving guy I knew all those years ago, only now he has a family and a ton of responsibilities.

As with these renewal of acquaintances, certain question naturally pops up

Do  I regret the path I took with my life? - No

Do I wish it was a bit easier getting to where I am today? – Certainly

Am I proud of my own “ little niche that I have carved out in society” ? – Most definately

Why?

Because “I” did it,

   love, kids, financial irresponsibility and responsibilities, mistakes, tears, headache and  all of those things made me who I am today and I am damn proud of that

IN A WORD TODAY -  Count your blessings (even when they don't feel like blessings)

I've been having an absolutely horrid week... totally crazy and stressful. Thanks for reminding me about this.

Count your blessings (even when they don't feel like blessings)

I needed that... have a great weekend! :)

Hey Lily..

So sorry you are having a horrid week - hope the weekend is a bit better for you..

Sometimes we all need that little nugdge for us to remember the small blessings - I really needed that awakening today..

I am glad my journey today made an impact...

Be well my dear...

As is the way with the internet - I found my way here via a strange and twisty path - and this post caught my eye - for a couple of reasons - but mostly because I have always walked my own path. It's sometimes a lonely and rocky path (although less so recently) but I'm glad I do - it make me who I am.
