FOWC with Fandango — Hindsight

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
We say that ‘in hindsight’ maybe we would, or wouldn’t, have done something, especially when it all goes belly up and horribly wrong.
In hindsight, maybe I wouldn’t have moved away from the parental county to move in with a guy and ready made family,
But then, if I hadn’t, I would not be the person I am now. I found out a lot about myself in those years, some of it not very nice, but more importantly I learned from it.
Most of all, I had the experience of fostering kids that were not so privileged as I had been growing up, the pleasure of seeing their happiness and giving them support when they most needed it.
In hindsight, perhaps I would have done some things differently, but at the end of the day, I am where I am, and I’m content with that.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. The Hook says:

    Even our mistakes define us, it’s true.
    Sometimes they help define more than anything.

  2. If you think it was the right thing to do at the time, you can have no regrets at a later date even if it turns out it might have been better to react differently.
