RELIVING THE PAST?
Don't you wish some times that you could read someone's mind? I bet if I could read Champ's mind, he would be thinking that life is pretty good for him these days. He's pretty hefty so you know he eats well and doesn't worry about where his next meal is coming from. He likes to "torpedo" the porch in his, what I like to call, submarine look. In fact, he pretty much lays wherever he wants. And he seems to be very confident in his surroundings and doesn't mind taking a cat nap which wasn't always the case. Yep, he has a pretty good life these days.
I read an article today written by someone wanting to go back in time to change the past and correct mistakes. I thought to myself......Hmmm.....NOPE! Living my life was hard enough the first time. Thank you very much! Besides what would happen to the time continuum if I went back to change one little thing? All hell would break loose, that's what! It would start a spiral of unprecedented chaos. It could erase all the good things that have happened to me along the way.
For example, so I don't marry my cheating first ex-husband, okay. But then, I don't learn all the things that I learned from that relationship, pain, strength, and recovery. Let's face it. We are our experiences. Our experiences and lessons learned shape us into the person we become. Besides, if I hadn't had that experience, then I wouldn't have been in the right place to meet my second ex-husband. He gave me one of my greatest blessings, my oldest son, and I wouldn't have missed that for the world.
Ask Champs, he'd tell you if he could. All the bad things that happened in his earlier life help him to appreciate just how wonderful it can be. Yes, life is good now, and we wouldn't have it any other way.
