I sit and wonder how different my life would be...

I am a poet and these lines just came to me out of the blue... I sit and I wonder About how different my life would be If only I was confident and driven If only I was strong and brave If only I wasn't afraid to take chances Even if it meant I would fail or hit rock bottom And would not see the success I wish to see... If I don't try I can't win If I don't try I remain a loser...

Sometimes I (and others too) think about what would have happened had we done something differently. Or we think about why we didn't do this or that when we should have. But we can't turn back time and change things, so thinking about it does nothing but let us reflect. On the other hand, it can also teach us a lesson and prevent us from making the same mistakes again.
