I thought I had it all figured out...

A wise person can learn from other peoples stories, however most of us choose to create our own. As a child my father always used to tell me I was rushing my life. I disagreed and thought I knew it all from the young age of fifteen. At that time I believed I had it all figured out and could determine my own fate. The truth is the older I get the more I realize I didn't really know anything. I have always had to try things for myself, often times I would fail. Sometimes I wish I would have listened to other peoples mistakes instead of repeating them. I am now aware of the importance of listening to others stories and learning lessons through them.

My life has been amazing. Full of ups and downs. I have experienced more things than the average person twice my age. I joke and say my life this far would have made a great soap opera. I look forward to listening to others stories and telling my own.

I have to tell you that I really enjoyed reading your post, especially where you put "my life has been amazing." I am so used to hearing everyone complain about how horrible their lives are. Or how they wish it was different and all their problems. I never hear anyone tell me that their life is amazing. So. although that may sound weird, I was extremely inspired to hear you say that! I think we all sometimes need to realize how good we have it and stop complaining
