Second ThoughtsPosted: 2008/11/06
What happens when you have second thoughts about a decision? Do you try to go back to the crossroads and turn around, take a different route? Pretend it never happened? Or, do you decide to make the best of where you are and forge ahead? Push on through doubt and back away from the precipice of regret?
What happens when you have second thoughts about a person? Do you go back to the moment of confidence, take back your compliments and turn to someone else? Pretend you never felt that way? Or, do you give him the benefit of the doubt and ignore the signals of miscommunication and misinterpretation? Push through the anger and shut the door on disappointment?
What happens when you have second thoughts about a dream? Do you go back to the moment just before slumber and pray for a different nightmare? Do you shut out the visions of what could be and focus on the reality of what is, never confusing the two? Or, do you forge ahead with the dream, as costly as it may seem; Take that chance, shut your eyes tight and leap with more faith than a gospel choir? Put your trust in happily ever after?
I think you do both. You learn from your mistakes. You take that bad decision and find away to earn something from it. You take that misjudgement of a person and you say you’re sorry and move on. You take that dream and leap, yes. But you leap with both eyes wide open.
