Stuck in Reverse


Sometime in our lives, each of us will face a time when we feel we are stuck in our place and unsure where to go. Some of us will face this moment more than once. We will question our very being, our very existence. We’ll try to find meaning in the things we’ve done in the past. We’ll ask why we didn’t do certain things or talk to certain people. We’ll ask ourselves what led us down our path. Some of us will ask why we couldn’t be better sons or daughters, brothers or sisters, better parents, or even just better friends. Some will question God, and ask why they we’re dealt the hand they were dealt. Some will look for others to blame, or look to choices that have long been made, and circumstances that have long since past.

No one knows why we are here. No one knows why things happen as they do. All we are left with is the choices we make and how we decide to move forward from this point on. An old friend once told me that it is not the things that we’ve done that we most often regret, but the things that we don’t do.
