The Streets of Sacrifice.


I have always thought of sacrifices as being noble, doing the right thing even if it is hard for us to do. I have made my sacrifices in life. I have tried my best to make the right decisions in the choices with the sacrifices I’ve made.

In hindsight, I’ve learnt that making a sacrifice is not necessarily a good thing if you’ve made the wrong choice and sacrificed incorrectly. Some of our choices will only prove to be the right or wrong choices over time when we can see the outcome of those decisions.

I am naturally hesitant to go into detail about my personal sacrifice, but I will say that I was wrong while trying to do right. My little knowledge acquired recently from the school of life is that it doesn’t mean that a sacrifice is the right thing to do because it is a sacrifice.

We could make the wrong sacrifice, but how are we to know the outcome of our sacrifice without having ridden the wave of it. No matter how noble you think you’re being, it is not always necessarily the right choice.

Sometimes the right thing is not sacrificing at all but rather being proactive without the sacrifice. This, of course, will not apply to all decisions, but it will apply to some.

“Regrets, I’ve had a few” if I could quote from Frank Sinatra’s song, My Way.

I calm my soul with the thought that my the sacrifices I made were made with good intentions and love.

  1. What a stunning photo of the Cosmos flower Michelle! The light shining through it, that beautiful colours. Just amazing! I just love it! πŸ˜€

    Sometimes we make bad choices for the right reasons and the other way around. Whatever the reason, I believe it is just how things are meant to be. We all have our regrets sometimes, but it’s only because we thought we could do better. Maybe we could and maybe it wasn’t meant to be. I think sometimes we think too much and do too little. πŸ˜†

    It’s always great to see a post from you in my reader and I do miss your stunning photos. πŸ˜€ β™₯

  2. It is all about the intentions I believe Michelle- sometimes we try to do our best, make the right choices, and things go awry. We learn as we go, don’t we? Glad to see you in my reader. ❀

  4. Lovely post, Hopestar. Making a sacrifice always proves selflessness, so even if it was the wrong decision at the time, your sacrifice was commendable. What’s done can never be undone, so regrets are a pointless exercise. We must just comfort ourselves that we did what we felt was right at the time. *hugs*

  5. From my mistakes, from my sacrifices, I find in my heart all I leaned made me a better human! You are a jewel whose selfless and genuine love shines radiantly to others causing smiles to blossom. God made you perfectly that way and you will continue to grow beautifully during your life! Hugs!

Namaste. My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
