Looking Ahead

11 Jun

This weeks topic for my blog group GBE2 is, ‘if I had my life to live over…’. Well,this one’s tough for me because I generally don’t like to look back, I like to move forward with no regrets. Every day we are faced with decisions to make from the simple things like what to have for breakfast to the major things like, should I take that job. Sometimes we make quick decisions without thinking through all the consequences. From my examples, if I eat brownies for breakfast (which I have done before), it could be a downward spiral to terrible eating for weeks or at least a high sugar day leading to a serious crash at night. In terms of career,well, sometimes something sounds great but we don’t weigh how a certain job may affect our quality of life, insurance, etc. There are so many decisions to make on a constant basis.

In terms of the original question, I can’t really answer. I feel I am accountable for my decisions whether I feel I’ve made a mistake or not, and I have to follow through without looking back. I don’t believe in entertaining ‘what ifs’ because that would make me crazy. I choose to look forward, cancer was a wake up call to live today and not look back. Looking forward I want to love more (even though it makes me more vulnerable), I want to stress less, I want to laugh…ALOT, and I want to wake up each morning with a grateful heart and the breathless anticipation that something awesome can happen that day, even if I have to initiate it.

Today I wear Buxom Big and HealthyLip Cream in Berry Blast. First of all, I LOVE all the Buxom lipglosses. The colors are beautiful and they add a slight tingle to your lips when you put them on. These Lip Creams have a sheer wash of color and are not sticky at all, also, the creams have no sparkles or shimmer, they just hve that ‘glossy’ look. Berry Blast looks like a hot ping fuschia in the tube but it is a perfect color for summer; It adds a sheer pop of pink to your lips. I chose Berry Blast because that’s how I want everyday to be…a blast!

    I am with you, no looking back. Well, glancing to remember a lesson or a warm moment, but no studying the past. Always moving forward while loving my now. Great job. ♥

      Yup, only remembering lessons from the past and moving forward!

    nice post, anna… yes, looking back isn’t going to make life better… moving forward is the most logical way to walk…. today can be the beginning… why try to find it from long ago…

    Yes. Looking forward is the way to go, especially since there is nothing you can do to change most things from the past.

    I can understand your response to the topic. You are so much wiser than most of us because of your experience with your illness. God Bless You!

    I don’t generally like to look back either. I just want to move on and keep plodding along.

    You’re right of course. You don’t drive down the interstate looking in the rearview mirror. Love that you get so much enjoyment from your lipsticks. I just keep looking for that one perfect color. : – )

      Thanks Angela! That’s right, we don’t look back! Also, that’s what started my lipstick passion…finding the exact right color, texture, etc…still haven’t found perfection, but been close!
