Let it Bleed, June 3, 2018

Let it Bleed, the brainchild of Saumya Agrawal is a weekly writing challenge I have let it fall by the wayside for almost a month now, but today’s phrase spoke to me.

2nd Chance

Who doesn’t need (or want) a second chance at times?  I know I have wanted one desperately at times in my past.

When I first dropped out of college and the only jobs I could find paid less than I could live on……….

When I failed to listen to all my friends and family tell me “that man is no good” and got married to him anyway……

When I took my first drink…………

When I told off that boss……………

When I yelled at my child…for nothing more than BEING a child………

Wouldn’t it be nice, though, if instead of wishing for a second chance at something, we fully thought out our plans? We simply stopped feeling for a moment and used our brains for something more than filling up our head with something besides air?

Just a thought.

  3. I suppose that’s why they say “hindsight is 20/20”. I always look at one of those instances as an opportunity to do things right the next time, mostly because I’m only perfect the second time around lol!

  4. Why wait for a chance that may never come?.. pour yourself a bit of wine and while finishing the wine, make sure you are right and then go ahead and do it… 🙂

      1. A glass of water (maybe with a twist of lemon) and a imagination works just as good, done it many times myself!!… 🙂
