I Like My Choices

Day 201 in my miles toward Mickey

“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world…but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.”

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

This quote really spoke to me today.  This whole journey that I’m on is so-o-o-o narcissistic.  It makes me focus IN every day.  What’s my plan today?  How am I feeling today?  What am I realizing today?  Me…me…me.

I love taking better care of myself.  I love having a focus and goals.  But sometimes, even I gag at my self-importance.  It’s naval staring.  I’m basically staring at my own naval everyday.  Blech!

This quote spoke to me today because, there is pain in life.  Physical pain, emotional pain, mental pain.  Lots of pain.  But like the quote, I like my choices.  I do not regret loving one person that I’ve lost.  I love my folks, and now they’re gone.  It hurt so much to lose them, but love is worth it.  The same with friends that I’ve lost.  I loved them with all of my heart, and it tore me apart to lose them.  BUT LOVE IS WORTH IT.

I know this is a ramble today, but I guess my thought for today is: along with this continuing self-centered journey, I want to take the time to love.  I want to take to time to care.  I want to take the time to experience life, love, pain, survival, redemption, etc…  I like my choices.

Meet you at the Kingdom!

  1. I know what you mean. That is how I felt. I didn’t want to let myself to get close to anyone and love anyone or anything even my dogs because they all were taken away from me. Still hurts and I still feel that way to a certain extent. I feel why should I ? tt
