Jerry Pritchett – Thinking Out Loud – Crossroads

During my lifetime, I’ve spoken with various folks who’ve expressed regret regarding some of the decisions they’ve made in their life. Most wished they could go back and make better choices. I’m certain had they done so, they could’ve ended up in worse condition, since any change can lead to unforeseen consequences, not all pleasant, and some possibly downright disastrous. Perhaps an auto mechanic wishes he’d gotten a college degree, envisioning he could’ve become an executive, running an auto parts company. What if he actually had made the college choice? Who’s to say he wouldn’t have died in an accident, became a drug addict dying of an overdose, not met his wonderful wife, not had his four children he loved dearly, nor any other of the endless possibilities that could’ve happened? Sure, it might’ve turned out better overall but it’s a roll of the dice. At his moment of regret, wouldn’t it be a good time to count his many blessings instead of looking back on perceived failures? I recently watched a TV series where people stuck in a horrid future went back in time to change events that had led up to the apocalypse they’d found themselves in. By studying the past history, they reasoned if they’d done things differently, it would’ve resulted in a healthy, stable future. They worked diligently to change key things in the past that they thought would prevent the catastrophe. When those exact changes did not bring about the desired future, they tried yet again, and again. In all cases, it either didn’t result in a better future or made things far worse.
