10 years on

Given some rather poor life choices prior to meeting Twizzles, I’ve come to realise that this trip almost precisely marks 10 years since my last massive adventure. In August 2003 I traveled to New York.. What an amazing week! I did it all.. Empire State, Statue of Liberty, Central Park… Just fantastic! But it really does throw some of my choices made into sharp relief. I should have traveled so much more; oh don’t get me wrong… I did a bit… Northern Spain, Belgium, Finland… But if I’d done something once a year I’d have tripled my list. If I reflect, it’s not something I can honestly regret because every choice has brought me here, to this moment. I’m lying on my bed blogging from my smartphone with Twizzles fast asleep next to me. I know I have made the right choice this time, I really cannot think of anyone I’d rather be with. We’re going back to Poland and I’m fulfilling a dream of visiting Pripyat. In conclusion to a somewhat philosophical blog for 0815 on saturday morning. You should only regret things if you are unhappy with who you are… And there is always a way to change your life, always. The choices can be so hard, they can drag you through some of the darkest days of your life. But, you come through it and you find yourself coming across a date that makes you reflect on a whole decade of your life (one third of mine) and you realise that where you are and who you are is so much better. If you are reading this and thinking “I’m unhappy with my life” it’s usually only one or two elements of your life… Think hard because you really can change them… I promise
Much Love to you all
