Reverb 12 | Prompt 13 | Do-Over

#reverb12 is a prompt-a-day series for the month of December that is meant to give us all the chance to reflect on 2012 and the opportunity to write down our hopes and dreams for the coming year. Through December 31st Meredith, Sarah and I will be posting each day with a new prompt. Join us by writing, or join us by reading. No matter what you choose, come with us.

Do-Over: Of the things that happened this year, if you had the chance to do X all over again, what would it be?

On June 17th, Allison gave me a do-over.

Today, we start fresh.

Starting fresh.  It felt good.  It felt right.  It felt like the siren song of an unfamiliar time.

And on June 17th, I needed to hear those words.  That it was okay to wake up, walk it off and look forward instead of back.

End of story.

Yes, there are times this year where I wish I had relaxed a little bit more, been more assertive at work, had more patience with myself and others.

But as I look at the measure of my days in 2012, I wouldn’t want to change or even relive any of it.  I’ll save that chit for another day.

  2. When I started bleeding during this last pregnancy I would have taken it way easier and gone right to the doctor and stopped everything. In some ways I feel like I had William early because I didn’t listen to the spirit, I didn’t want to stop what I was doing. If I could go back I would have stopped everything when I found the bleeding.

    This is a great post. I don’t believe in not having regrets. To me it makes no sense. Regrets are what help us to make wiser choices. Having regrets is part of life. Love,
