Quote of the Day

"Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment, and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next."  Gilda Radner

My newest thing that I will do with quotes is to talk about what I think about the quote itself.

Sometimes I actually wonder if I had known certain things were going to happen would I change it.  That's a hard question.  It goes to reason that if you changed one thing then another would change.  In this frame of mind, would that mean that I would not have my children?  That I would not have Ken, the love of my life?  If so, I wouldn't change a thing.  But if that one small change, would make my life better and I would still have the most important parts of it.  Just lose the mundane parts.  I might consider it.  Would I do it I wonder. 

Would you?  Please leave your thoughts on this.

I agree that living in the moment brings far more enjoyment than worrying about what comes next.

I would be Aria's mom again! So, a little change..I guess I would enjoy the moments, wouldn't worry about things too much.

I think everything happens for a reason, so I wouldn't change anything...and there's lots of things that needed to be changed!!

I don't think I would change anything. I'm a firm believer that things play out exactly the way they are supposed to and I wouldn't want to mess with that. Great post - Got me thinking!

I love Gilda! I read her autobiography, it was very inspiring! Saying you wish something from your past would be different is something we probably all think of at least once... but we have no idea how one small change could impact everything. For instance, I'd not change anything that might have kept me from having my children!

Happy Monday to you!

I wouldn't change anything I have done or decisions I have made, as it has brought me to this very place I stand in today. My life is full of blessings brought about sometimes during difficult trials, but I love the person I have become in spite of them all.

I wouldn't change anything. I feel like things would turn out the same anyway.
