When I was young, I had a dream. Where’s that dream now? It never happened.
People dream. In grade one we all wanted to be superheroes, grade two and three we wanted to be models or spies. In grade five we began to realize that there are more options and we wanted to be teachers, astronauts and firefighters. Then we realized that those jobs don’t pay so well, so we went for other options. Surveys show that less than 1% of kids chose the career they picked in grade 2. Why is that? Because people don’t follow their dreams.
When you ask a jailbird why his life turned out this way, he’d probably say it was because of bad choices, and that he’d give anything to undo them. When we make mistakes, we regret it, but God tells us that he put you on a path, and that everything has a purpose. We just have to embrace our destiny and choose with Him.
Teenagers would often say: “if I knew then, what I know now, I wouldn’t have done that! Or wouldn’t have gotten caught.” And where do they get it? Older role models say: “Is that the passing average now a day? I wouldn’t have studied so hard when I was in school.” That is where it begins, and then they turn out with problems and môre problems, why? Because they didn’t do their best!
Everyone everywhere wishes in some time of his/her life that he/she could do something over; whether it is a business deal a dream left a dream or a choice. The fact stays: “In life there is no pause button, no rewind, and definitely no replay.” S Williams. So just live life to the full, and never look back, because you can’t change the past, you can only change the future, and God will be with you, every step of the way.
