IF I HAD LIFE TO LIVE OVER......WOULD I LIVE IT THE SAME?

IF I HAD LIFE TO LIVE OVER……

We really can’t control where we were born or the situation we were born into…..We have no control over that. For that reason I believe that GOD put us exactly where HE wanted to put us for a reason……..We were born into a situation to allow it to mold the lump of clay (US) he gave us  to become our very best……IT is us who is to take what we were given and mix it with the situations we were given to come out on the other end to become the person God designed us to be….

Some people seem to have been born into “perfect” situations while others are born into awful situations……I think the person born into the awful situation has opportunities to become the best they can be. They can be a victim or a victor….It is up to them…..I have read stories of people born into terrible situations who ended up leading extraordinary lives…..I have read stories of people who were born into extraordinarily great situations end up leading very messed up lives……For that reason I believe it is not what we are born into, but what we make out of what we have been given…..

Everyone is given a different lump of clay to work with……and different circumstances…..That is what makes them unqiue…They wouldn’t be who they are with a different lump of clay or different circumstances……I guess we don’t get to pick where we are born into and the circumstances surrounding it….but we can choose the decisions we make at a certain point….We can choose what we do with what we have been given….We can take what we have been given and make the very best life for ourselves…….

So often people blame everything on their life because they got a “bum deal” in the beginning. I do understand…..and yet what they are not seeing is that they can become as successful as they want as a person if they choose by using that “bum deal” to catapult them to where they want to go…

So looking back….how would you live your life different based on exactly what you have been given…..the problems and issues along the way that you started off with? Would you do things different? Or would you do them the same?

Often when people approach the end of their lives they often are filled with regrets……Some have them…some don’t…..but I think we all reflect a bit at that point and think of the things we would do differently……A well lived life realizes that they can’t go back and change things….but if they recognize things along the way they can be living the life that they can later look back on and realize they made the very most of where they were at at the time….problems and all…..

We can’t escape problems in life….so we have to make them work to our advantage…..Often there are things we cannot change in life that may seem unfair….so it is up to us to work with them to our advantage…..To find the good behind every problem…..to find the blessing behind every problem….no matter what is going on in life….

A well lived life enjoys the journey along the way realizing bumps and even a few chuckholes are simply going to be on the road of life….if they are out there travelling…..People who go nowhere in life usually don’t face the bumps and chuckholes in the road of life….but those who want to live a full life understand that problems are a part of blessings……and they simply find a way to enjoy life anyhow…..

“IF I had my life to live over” is something I think most people think about at one time or the other…..I think it isn’t always about the big things we would change….Instead I think it is about the little things….The things like how we see life, how we enjoy life, our attitudes…..along the way…..I think when it comes down to it a lot of big things we simply wouldn’t change…..but a lot of the small things we would……Life is a journey and meant to be enjoyed….Perfection is not the name of the game or a perfect life……Instead, the life that is successful has found fulfillment and happiness all along the way regardless of life's issues or where it placed them from the beginning…..They simply created their BEST LIFE anyways….
