“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly” – R. Buckminster Fuller
Wouldn’t it be nice if someone gave us the roadmap to a perfect life? What would you have done differently? How would your life look if you knew then what you know now? I have been thinking about that a bit lately and this is what I came up with.
I don’t have regrets because the life I’ve lived got me where I am today so I can’t say I’ve wasted my time. My previous career was very rewarding. I have a rich, full life with people I love and who love me. I have twice come back from life-threatening experiences, stronger and better off. But there are things I might have done differently.
If I’d only known, I would have…
- been more fearless
- had more adventures
- found my voice sooner
- had more patience
- said ‘I love you’ more
- been more involved with what is important to those important to me
- treated my body better
- learned more about nutrition much earlier
If I’d only known…I would have started my coaching practice as a side hustle much earlier
I’m one of the lucky ones. I finally know what I want to be when I grow up. Not everyone gets the privilege or has the insight but I figured it out for me. It would have been nice to know many years before I got here but then I might not have realized I had arrived.
Life happens in divine timing I suppose. We don’t necessarily know what that timing is however, until we have the benefit of hindsight.
I have no complaints and I believe I have lots of time and opportunity to write the ending. But we never really know that, do we? You know…divine timing and all.
