  • I could be bitter and list all the events that shaped who I am:
    If only I didn't have to go to five different schools I might have....
    If only I didn't have to live with five different aunts and uncles and went to one good foster family, I might have.....

    Bitterness is futile. I have learned to live in the now. No worrying about all the dumb things I did in the past. No worrying about the dumb things I might do in the future. I just live in the now and appreciate each moment and give thanks for what I have.

    Or perhaps I am just getting old.
