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.
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.
