PLACES TO GO AND THINGS TO SEE?

The choices made today may have consequences tomorrow. 

I am the eldest of six, and there are only eight years between myself and the baby. Growing up, I always had a baby in my lap doing what babies do. I didn’t complain, it was what it was, although it wasn’t my decision to babysit.  

Even with all those siblings, life was still a dream, we eat together, played in and outdoor games together, but more importantly, we took road trips.

Before I was fifteen years old I had been to New York several times, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Maryland, etc.

While on these road trips, I took full advantage of the adventures. With so many amazing things to see or do that opened my eyes to the world, a world in which I would soon be making decisions for myself.

Did you know The more decisions you are forced to make alone, the more you are aware of your freedom to choose?

In other words, I realized babysitting wasn’t the only thing to look forward to, so getting out of my zip code gave me the best opportunity to experience what else is to be discovered. I realized no place, person or situation was the same; I was ready to explore that possibility. The thing is I wasn’t old enough, but I was coming of age; it wouldn’t be long before high school would be a thing of the past. I needed to be prepared for a new and independent life outside of the home.

The first thing I learned was you just can’t jump up and leave without a plan, underage, and without finances. Oh, but if you are in a hurry, this may help, Do not do the same thing the same way 50 times when it doesn’t work. When you can stop doing that, you may have grown enough to make some decent decisions.

For safety precautions when making those decisions, I suggest you Never base life decisions on advice from people who don’t have to deal with the results.  

I knew life was full of pros and cons, and the safest place was at home still, I wanted to be a part of the outside world, so I decided, what was best for me was not to follow the crowd.  A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion.

I wanted total control of my life, and having a husband and children in or out of wedlock was not for me.

In my day, women were supposed to get married, coupled with doing as they were told; I was determined to make my own decisions about my body and how I would make a living that would allow me to answer to no one. What I learned was Decisions are a reality of life that equates to consequences.

That one sentence started me to wondering, how would I fair in my old age without children, coupled with the decision to never marry. The truth is, I knew the answer; I am not submissive, so having someone rule over me is out of the question. I believed I would have lived a miserable life since I am so happy without ever having a husband and children.

But at age seventeen, I wondered if I could live with that decision fifty years later? I still had to make a decision and live with it. That was the scary part.

Decisions sometimes prove to be very scary, especially when the choice is between where you should be and where you really wanted to be. 

Still, all decisions have consequences, right or wrong, even the well-intended ones. The task is to Remain open to the unfolding of life and let it reveal itself in time. Questions need to be asked, did you think it through, and if you fail, can you live with the decision you made and move on? But more importantly, did you learn anything?

All I am trying to say is you will reap and sow from the decisions you make, just like you will fail and never recover if you fail to adjust.

It’s Something to Think About!

Jesus is Lord! Thank you for your support.

    Throughout this awesome design of things you’ll receive an A just for effort and hard work. Where you misplaced me ended up being in your facts. As as the maxim goes, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn’t be more correct right here. Having said that, permit me tell you precisely what did work. The article (parts of it) is definitely rather engaging which is most likely the reason why I am making the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, although I can easily notice the jumps in reason you make, I am not necessarily sure of just how you appear to unite the ideas that help to make your conclusion. For now I shall yield to your position but trust in the near future you actually connect your facts much better.
