Well, I understand that I will never really be able to change history. And I am thinking that I probably wouldn’t want to. Sure there are a lot of things that I would rather never happened but I do believe that everything happens for a reason and that we are exactly where we are supposed to be. Why? Because maybe there is something we need to do or learn in the here and now. There are so many things and events that led me to where I am now. For example, if I hadn’t moved from New York to North Carolina, I may not have given up my job and started making purses and returned to woodturning. I may never have noticed all the great handmade products available and been driven to show people that they have an alternative to “big box” stores. I wouldn’t be writing this blog. You wouldn’t be reading it and seeing Scott Plumb in the “Spotlight” today.
So what it comes down to is that I can’t change history. I can only learn from it and try to use my present station to learn my lessons and make the most of every day to do what I can do. I am exactly where I’m supposed to be and am doing what I’m supposed to be doing. And now you know about Scott.
Quote of the Day:
"When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have
a single bit of talent left and could say,
''I used everything you gave me.''
