Nothing Is Certain But Death And Taxes

Except spankings, right? That was a pre-emptive strike because I knew someone was gonna go there. ;-) But sorry, this is more of a serious post today. Some events of late have led me to think a lot about the "big picture" in life and even my own mortality. If the world were to end tomorrow, would I be happy with how my life had gone? Would I have regrets? Would there be things I wish I would've done but never got around to doing?

I think we all have regrets and usually we learn from them. For that reason, I don't know that I'd go back and re-do anything even if I did have the chance to. It makes me think of that movie The Butterfly Effect. Every time he tried to make a change in events it just led to a new path being made and something was always still screwed up in the end. Nothing will ever be perfect no matter which path we take. That's life.

Would there be things I wish I'd got around to doing? I guess so. I don't have some bucket list for life per se, but there's probably always more that one can do. What have I done? I've been in love. I've helped a friend. I've made people laugh. I had the guts to finally share my deepest needs and desires with the man I love and incorporate the spanking lifestyle into our every day lives. Those are all good things.

My family and friends are very important to me. I consider myself to be a good and loyal friend, to a fault really. Sometimes that in interpreted as being a doormat. Friends come and go in life and that can be a sad thing under any circumstance but it happens. For those who have parted ways, I hope that we both learned something from each other. To the friends that are still around, thank you for being there. For all the times you let me vent my frustrations, cry on your shoulder, laughed at my bad jokes, or got a bag of ice for my burning backside, thank you. My parting words for today, never miss a chance to tell those you love that you love them.

Well said, Lea. I'm glad I finally took the risk to explore this part of my life - and not only did it led to finally experiencing the spanking part of life, it led to me finding the love of my life! And soon Michael and I will be married. To all who hesitate, to all who wait, I say GO FOR IT!

Very nice and very true. I'm looking forward to seeing you very soon.
Oh btw, I was in in your State before, I just did not know...

Absolutely, there is no such thing as perfection. Only doing what we can, the best we know how, moment by moment. And some moments are better than others.

Wishing you peaceful thoughts and all the friends you can stand. :-)

Wonderful post Lea. For me, your blog and the witty way that you write about life and spankings helps make my life richer. Thank you.

Lea said...

@Season, that is fantastic and I'm so happy for you two.

@Urs, thanks for reading. I look forward to seeing you too!

@Erica, definitely some moments are better than others. Thank you.

Lea, I share your philosophies, and admire you for the wisdom you've gained at such a young age. You've enriched my life by being a friend. Just thought you should know that:-)

Lea said...

@Kathy, awww thank you. I count myself lucky to be your friend. :-)

I like your outlook on regrets and changing things from the past. I guess the only bad choices I'd change would be the ones I'd make again. (That sentence makes me dizzy, but I will let it stand.)

I appreciate you and your blog, too, Lea!
