There are so many things that we can do with our life. Some choices are good and wise while others are not. I have experienced many good things that I appreciate for making good decisions in my life. I have not had to deal with health problems from unhealthy habits as smoking or recreational drugs. I was raised that dating is a serious step that should lead to marriage so I didn't experience the heartache and pain that frequently comes with dating different men to find the right one. So I'm thankful for doing things the right way.

It took me a while to find my mister right, but I don't always think that is a bad thing. I got to know a lot about myself through the heart aches I have been through. If I never went through bad relationships I would not appreciate the good relationship I am in now as much. I have made some decisions I wish now that I could take back but again at the same time, maybe if I went and graduated college I might not have my kids or I might not be with my soul mate right now... There are so many things that might have been different if I changed one thing about my life. Would I want to go back and change things? No. I am happy with who I'm with and happy I have 3 beautiful children... Every decision could lead to a different outcome in our lives. All of my so called "bad decisions" led me to right where I am now.

I'm so happy for you and your family. From hearing all of your thoughts and comments from this post and many others I have come to adore your family. I'm glad to hear that you are happy with your life, with your husband and your children. That going through those hard times have made you appreciate your family even more so. I'm glad that you have a great husband and that you were able to find the person who is right for you. I do understand what you mean about how one decision can change our life and have lead us somewhere else. We can't change the past but we can work on the present and try to make decisions that will affect our future the way we would hope for.

Wow, Dominique, I can see that you are a very sensible person. In my case, I think I have made some very bad decisions in my life and which I now regret. I hope what I am doing now are the right things. I like to think that.

Thanks, I had good role models. I hope that the decisions that you are currently making will lead you where you want to go. I think at times we forget that the decisions we make now will affect our life tomorrow, and in the future. If we want a successful job then we have to do things now that will get us there in the future. If we want to be with a respectful,responsible person then we have to look in areas and places where we would find that type of person,etc. People,things, and situations aren't going to change for us. It, or they already have to be that way.

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well i have always believed that whenever one does good and right things, he or she feels relaxed and satisfied. There is always a sense of relief and inner satisfaction that something better has been done by that person. Each work has its own lesson and we have to learn this lesson properly and try to grasp the positives from them. i am glad to know that u have been aware of relationships and i hope it will help u a lot in the future. What say?

I agree with you. It does give us a sense of peace and relaxation when we do the right thing. We are happy and proud then about we have accomplished. There are so many people who are doing wrong and hurting others that it is nice to be different from the majority that are doing wrong. Thanks I appreciate your wishes of goodwill toward me.
