I’m content with how my life is. I have a wonderful, amazing, loving husband. I live in a beautiful house. I have a good job. I have family and friends close by.
But Mama Kat asked, ‘What would you change about your life if you could?’
I’m tempted to say ‘Nothing.’ After all, every step I took, every road, led to the wonderful life I have now. But…if I could pick one thing – only one – and it wouldn’t change the outcome of my life, wouldn’t chaneg meeting AMP and falling in love and getting married…
I would want to have moved out before I got married. I would have traveled. I would have learned to be more domestic while I was single – so that it wouldn’t have been such a culture shock when I got married.
That sounds like more than one thing. Good thing I’m free to contradict myself as much as I want.
I don’t regret my choices. I love my life. But, I can see the good that comes from being on your own for a bit – learning to budget better, with money and with time. To be more organized. To have traveled alone and with friends, seen new places when I didn’t have a mortgage to pay. To have other experiences to draw on.
But… Now I get to experience those things with AMP. We can travel together to places near and far. I get to spend each day waking up next to a husband who loves me more than anything, who has made sacrifices so that I can have the things I desire…
So, if I had to choose to have moved out or traveled but would have to give up meeting AMP? Well, then I’m glad I never did those things, because I will always choose my life with AMP over any other road or adventure I may have taken.
