No Ragrets


The other day I was sitting in a study room with one of my friends trying to get some homework done. There were two problems with this though, one, I was with one of my friends, and two, the work wasn’t due the next day so it wasn’t that important to get done. 

So, of course, like any normal human beings, we started chatting. At first the conversation was pretty basic: How was your day? What song do you want to listen to next? Did you see that one boy from that one class today? 

But then, somewhere, somehow we started talking about how certain things effect other things. It crazy how the smallest idea can build up to something that can effect the rest of your life or at least change the way you do or see certain things. My friend then asked: "If you could change anything from your past what would it be?

I told her that it was a tough question and I didn’t have an answer yet but I would get back to her. I’ve been thinking about it for the past few days, and I finally have my answer. 

In the wise words of Scotty P. from We’re the Millers, “No Ragrets.” 

But seriously, I don’t want to change anything I’ve done or anything that’s happend to me (even the not so great things) because who knows what I’ve learned from these events. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, and without each thing that has happened in my life, I wouldn’t even be close to the person that I am today. 

It sounds cliche and cheesy, but if you really think about it, I am exactly where I am because of these things. Sure, I had to repeat sophomore year of high school but then I probably wouldn't even be in the college that I am now. Sure, I've moved 7 times and attend countless schools, but then I wouldn't have the connections with people across the country that I have now. ure, that boy I went on a date with once never texted after the date and who knows why, but now I know it wasn't meant to be before it went too far. Sure, I didn't get the best score on my SAT, but I still got into a great college. 

Do you believe that everything happens for a reason?
