It's a twisting winding road

Live life with no regrets.
A nice thought by something that is not so easy to do.
There are things in life that are out of our control that we wish we were able to change or choices we made ourselves that we wish we could go back and undo, or do differently. I know that I have a few situations in my past were I look back now and think "wow what a stupid decision that was, what on earth was I thinking?", but I don't really regret them. Each decision I made took me down a different path that lead me to where I am today, and while at times that journey wasn't remotely fun, I wouldn't undo any of it. While I have situations that I wish were different (for example having gone through two miscarriages) it was a situation that taught me a lesson and continues to even now. So even though I wish it hadn't happened at all I can appreciate what it has taught me.
We can not have growth without struggle to first overcome.
Romans 5:3-5 More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

There is always a silver lining, it may be nearly impossible to see and it may take time to see it, but it is there.

(New music is up, I tried to pick some songs that, while are not my usual genre of music to listen to, I enjoy and they make me smile and just feel happy. Hope you like them too.)
