Wednesday words . . .

If . . .  I had my life to live over again, I'd try to make more mistakes next time.  All the best lessons so far in my life have been learned through making mistakes.  Some have been real doozers.  I'd not give any of those lessons up, not for anything, and I'd add a few more  . . .

sooner in life rather 
than later

I would know when to relax and when to limber up.  I'd get more exercise and I'd enjoy it.  I'd climb more mountains and swim more rivers.  I would do more walking and maybe even run a bit . . . maybe even a lot.  I'd be more of a hands-on athlete than an


I'd be a bit sillier than I've been on this trip . . . I'd laugh more . . . love more  . . . take some things less seriously, and others more seriously.  I'd walk on more beaches and kiss more lovers.  I'd be a bit more irresponsible about some things and a lot more responsible about others . . . I'd open more books and get a better education.   I'd not be in such a rush to do the things I did.  I'd take more time . . .  for everything

every decision 
every choice

I'd do more walking and looking, watch more sunsets and be awake for more sunrises.  I'd eat more ice cream and fewer salads . . . more fruit and fewer potato chips.  I'd eat more vegetables and less meat.  I'd be more balanced in everything and less full on . . . have more actual problems and fewer imaginary ones . . .  I'd throw more caution to the wind and I'd take a few more chances.

I'd believe more
and have more
faith in

You see  . . .  I have always been one of those people who lives hygenically and sensibly and sanely  . . .  day after day and hour after hour.  I've always been responsible, felt responsible, lived responsibly  . . . Oh, sure.   I have had my moments, but if I had it to do all over again . . .  I'd have more of them.  In fact, I'd try to have nothing else.  Just moments.  Day after day of moments, instead of always trying to live so many years ahead in the day.

I'd  just be more 

I have been one of those people who never go anywhere without a thermometer, a band-aid, a hot water bottle, a gargle, a raincoat, an aspirin and a parachute.  If I had it to do over, I'd go more places, meet more people, do more things and travel lighter than I have.  I'd lug a lot less baggage,

I'd ponder longer on the why not's?
than on the 

If I had my life to live over  . . .  I would ride on more carousels, and pick more daisies.    I'd do more fishin' instead of just a wishin'    The good thing is  . . .

 its never too late
to start

A thought to carry with you through today  . . .

And I do too!


  1. Marie, honey, I understand. I have always lived by the rules. Time and time again I have been heartbroken while others do what they please and get away with it. All my life I have felt a failure.

    Anyway on to brighter things. The days here are shortening and this week has been a little cooler. I am thankful, so very thankful. I had stopped doing my bullet journal because mum keeps reading it. Today I chose to start again. She is not going to change her behaviour. She does not see the need for privacy. So I am just going to do what pleases me.

    I looked in the kitchen. Yes groceries are expensive. But the cuts you have are not available here. Gammon! A few years ago I would have asked what was that. Last year they did sell it as a special in A88i.

    God bless you and enjoy your day.

  2. You said it all. Great post. If only....

  3. Hi Marie, great blog today and I fully understand, but the thing is, I love you just the way you are! Lots of love xxx

  4. Love the angel pictures today ! Hope your Wednesday is a wonderful one!

  5. Love the photos and the true in many aspects:)

  6. Groceries are expensive Suzan. But we need to eat. I notice that the sizes of most things are getting smaller and smaller. Yesterday in the shops, fresh greenbeans, I think there were 12 beans in the pack for about 60p. You can get 4 big sausage rolls for 50p. And they wonder why we have an obesity crisis! God bless! xoxo

    Aww thanks Kate! Love you too! xoxo

    Thanks Pam! You too! xoxo

    Thanks Monique. I love stone angels. xoxo


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
