Until Next Time…Part 3

Naturally, the last two posts brings me to one of the famous or infamous sayings I like to write about. “If you don’t do it, how will you know what would have happened if you had.” Believing this to mean when coming to a crossroads in life where you really want to take one path but the other is more logical – take the one that really appeals to you. What’s the worst that could happen? You work hard on the thing you enjoy doing but it doesn’t work out. The logical path most likely wouldn’t have worked out either, because your heart wasn’t in it. Your time would have been wasted in that direction.

My daughter has a plaque that says, “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail.” It’s the same philosophy presented in a different way.

Your time is never wasted in growing your skills in a field you love. Prepare and keep your mind open to a “next time” paradigm so the next time you face a crossroads dilemma you will know which path to take.


When we began ShyJot and through all the morphing, these are the words that ate at our heart. We are offering our abilities to help others. One day, when we are hugely succesful, our dream is to help others not only with our writings but also donate to many worthy programs.

I have not only lived many chapters in one life, but many lives in one body. The person I am today is far wiser than the me of young adulthood. My life is like your life with its ebb and flow. We are all connected in some way. I am a wife, mother, and grandmother, but what makes me, well, me is the way I wife, mother, and grandmother. I am a liver transplant survivor. Whatever devastation you have survived, we survived in our individual ways. I create with words and photos. I am a writer and photographer.
