Sunday Scribblings-Sorry and my 100th Post

The admins didn't have a prompt for this weeks Sunday Scribbling and left us a Sorry-No Scribblings post. Some people decided to run with this and use Sorry as a prompt. So I am going to do the same. This also happens to be the 100th post of my blog. Time to celebrate.

  • I'm sorry that I treat my wife badly sometimes. I don't mean to, but that doesn't make it right.
  • I'm sorry that I was mean to my sisters growing up. Some of it was typical brother/sister stuff, but there were times when I went over the line.
  • I'm sorry that there were times when I was ashamed of who I was.
  • I'm sorry that there were times when I was ashamed of where I came from.
  • I'm sorry I never took more chances in life.
  • I'm sorry I made some of the choices that I made.
  • I'm sorry that I didn't study more and do better in school.
  • I'm sorry I did some of the things that I did, and I'm sorry that I didn't do some things that I should have done.
  • I'm sorry that I picked on people that I shouldn't have picked on, instead of sticking up for them.

There are many more things that I am sorry about. I could fill up page after page with things if I took the time. Most of the big ones I have listed above. Have you ever felt so helpless in life? I feel like that sometimes. I am coming up on 30 and still don't know what I want to do with my life. It's like there is something missing and I don't know what it is or where I should go to find it.

Thanks for letting me ramble.

Glad you posted all that. Sometimes saying it aloud makes us see things in a better perspective!

Thanks for taking me along on your ramble. Perhaps it will all come together soon.

Oh. There are so many things to be sorry for. I love your Mario game spot and I think not knowing what you want to do with your life in your 30's is not only acceptable - I think it's preferable. Sorry.

It looks to me like you are beginning to face some of these things head on. That seems like a good start in figuring out what to do with your life. I sincerely wish you all the best.

That took guts! It's sometimes difficult to really be sorry about stuff and you jumped right in there. Very brave!

I think writing it down like you did is a very good way of owning up to things and putting them behind you, sometimes you need to do that in order to move forward.
