Second chances

Second chances don’t come around as often as one would hope, but when you get the opportunity one should be willing to give it all or just allow someone else to have the chance. It makes me think that when you don’t follow your dreams then you are settling. As a parent, I want my children to do go beyond the potential that i had at their age. I dont feel they should settle for anything knowing that there are so many options available for him or her. My oldest son is a babe magnet, he loves to flirt and I simply explained to him to enjoy life and all it has to offer prior to settling down with one person( Makes me think of Coming to America, the young prince trying to find his queen while the dad thinks he is soaring his royal oats). The reason i say that is because when you get in a committed relationship and haven’t experienced life you sometimes start to regret life decisions and become unhappy in your situation. Well, I met my children’s father at an early age and the regret came upon him and me, but now i have the opportunity for a second chance. Is this scary? of course it is, but anything worth having is worth the chance of getting it. Feels like it’s a gamble but honestly what do I have to lose?, Focusing on me feels really good.

    I enjoyed the article. I do agree that we’re not always given second chances in life. When we get them we definitely have to seize the moment and just go with it. If you don’t for fear, you’ll always wonder “what-if”. You’ve given your son very good advice to just enjoy his life. There’s no need to get so serious and settle down before he’s ready. You only get but so much time in this life and you don’t want to look back and realize you never lived it.
