After reading BloggerStock Posts here and here with the monthly theme of regrets and doing it all over again, got me thinking about my own life.
What would I do over again? EVERYTHING.
Life for me has been a rather odd one far from normalcy. However, how do you really define normal?
Normal = Not Me
So I'm curious as to what a Normal Me would be like.
There's always going to be someone weirder, worse horror stories etc....but I've developed some good tales of my own. Those tales are spun from the many miles I hitch hiked, concerts, those rave parties all the kids are talking (Those tales are a lil fuzzy with all the swiss cheese holes in my noodle), weird ass roommates (including a ex-prostitute/junkie,artist, hermaphrodite with HIV...who was totally awesome BTW) and well..all sorts of things. Some things do not need to be discussed on blogs in case my Mother reads this.
*Side note: Mom said to me the other day it should be easy for me to lose weight since I lost a lot of weight when I was living in a certain city. I said..."Um Mom...that wasn't exactly a healthy lifestyle method I was using." Mom: "Oh." End of discussion.
So those were mostly just my teenage years. Childhoods don't count because really, most choices are decided by your parents/guardians.
Yup, I've done some weird shit, embarrassing shit and shit I don't remember.
I'm barely scratching the surface here but you get a glimpse. Basically I've had some wild and fun times and I've done things I'm not proud of and wish I hadn't.
So again...What would I do over again? NOTHING.
Fuck, If I really was wrapped up in a question like that you might as well lock me up in a hug-me-jacket .
If I hadn't done all those things I wouldn't be where I am today. Sure there's always room for
My All Right = Not living below the poverty line, a nice non-infested/non-moldy roof over my head, an aging doggy who still loves me, Family who knows I'm a weird ass and still love me (*cough* some of that weirdness was DEFINITELY passed down *cough*), a ton of really wicked awesome friends from all over the globe, lots of laughs every day and most importantly Manfriend and the Kidlet.
If I hadn't bounced around and ended up in Calgary I would have never met Manfriend. This is something I can not bear to imagine. He is everything that is right in my life for once. He's my best friend, lover, and my rock. (DO ya Smell What's he's got cooking?!?! Ok not THE ROCK, just a stable support to hold onto in life.)
So I guess regret nothing? Well there's always those niggling regrets that I will have to just work through. Other than that, fuck it. Love your life and the people in it. If you don't, you can't change the past but you can change your future.
As for me, the future is looking pretty bright baby.
