Thinking About SMA, What Are You Glad You've Done Over The Years, And What Do You Wish You Could Have Done Differently?

I wish I would have pursued a different career path. I wasted to much of my time and energy at a job that I wasn't appreciated at for the sake of making money and paying bills.

I am mostly content with most of the choices i have made...even the bad ones as they were essential learning experiences. I wish I could have come up with a solution for the attendant care situation. Mostly i regret not knowing how little time i would have with my mother before her stroke and passing earlier this year. I would have just forgot about trying for a career and used my savings to take her on the cruise always talked about.

There is nothing I would have done over, I worked since I was 18 until last year, I got 2 College degrees, and met the love of my life not once but twice, the same person, got a second chance. I try to life to its fullest just a little harder now but where there is a will there is a way! God is Good!

Looking back I’m glad that I pursued motherhood and a career while I was still strong. Now that I’m older and significantly weaker, I’m accomplishing goals that are less physically taxing but just as fulfilling. The only thing I would do differently would be to worry less.
