Never close enough
Many of the things I believed before,
many of the deeds I was proud to do,
seem to me now no more
than the attributes of a fool.
If I was then as I am now
my life would have been
Man, I couldn't agree more. I look back all the time (even tho I promised myself I would stop it) and try and remember where I have been, in hopes that it will make me appreciate where I am a little more.
I think when we are kids, we could care less about anything that doesn't include fun, then as teenagers and young adults we seek direction (by making mistakes as opposed to asking) then as adults we REFLECT on all the things that either we did do, or didn't do, or done and didn't do right.
Quotes from one of my favorite songs by Tim McGraw (country singer) is:
Well you do what you do and you pay for your sins,
And thereís no such thing as what mightíve
Been, thatís a waste of time; drive you outta your mind
And for me... that sums it up.
I guess all we can do is try not to repeat our mistakes, and make what time we have left worth something.
