Non, je ne regrette rien

Life to me is like a ball of wool, one long, long never ending connected thread

A few weeks ago I went to have an MRI on my leg.  For those of you who know me well, you will know that I removed a benign sarcoma from my leg about 4 years ago and have so far been, knock on wood, well.  Well, until today.  When I found out that something was again growing on my leg.  And it shook me to my deepest core.  What if it is something that isn’t benign this time?  What if I have to have another operation?  What if…?  So many what ifs…

And like the stories of people in near death situations, my life flashed before my eyes.  From the cradle to the present.  And I thought, do I have any regrets?  If I were to die tomorrow, would there be anything about my life that I would change?  And I can truly and honestly reply – non, je ne regrette rien.  (Although I would like to record a mini solo CD with my beautiful Mya Myrtle (which is on its way from the US as we speak!) before I go to the Battle of Evermore.  Fingers crossed ;))

And I thought about the mystery of life and came to the realisation that life to me is like a ball of wool, one never ending connected thread that keeps going and going until you come to the end of the spool…and the never ending thread would not work without that bit of thread just before it and the one before that…just like life…all events lead to another event and to another one until we come to the end of the thread…it is up to us which events we choose and how we choose to experience the events we have no choice in…I believe I have chosen to the best of my ability…

So, whatever the future may bring, je ne regrette rien :)
