What keeps us from doing what we later wish we had?
It’s always us.
More specifically stated, it’s me.
I keep myself from doing what I later wish I had.
Here are a few of mine.
I wish I had not run through the first base coach’s “hold up” sign, which caused me to be out at second, end the inning and break my hand, even though I went on to play the final three games with a broken hand and went three for three in the final game.
I wish I had applied myself academically in high school and college and gone on to law school with an double undergrad degree in English Literature and Political Science, with a minor in Theology with my emphasis in law being Constitutional Law.
There is a long list.
I could go on.
Take your, “I wish I had’s…” and turn them into “I’m glad I did.”
What you almost “did”…you can still “do”.
