The Life Imagined

It’s time to start living the life you imagined. ——Henry James

The life I imagined?

Well, that just it. I don’t think I imagined my life or how it should go.

I have just lived it day by day, the best I knew how.

Regrets? Many!

Yet, if I were to imagine my life, I would certainly not make the same make twice. Especially knowing now, what I didn’t know then.

If I were to imagine my life, I imagine I would make it all good. Yet, doing so would eliminate the experiences, that at the time I judged as bad.

As I have become more mature in life, I note the higher growth times came from the bad times, had I imagined would happen, I would have eliminated.

One aspect of maturity is realization and acceptance of making errors. Another aspect is letting those errors be a teacher, not a eraser in our lives.

Describe the life you imagined.
