What If

Have you ever asked yourself "what if" when you reach a point in your life where you could've acted on an opportunity? I've been an evangelist of the following quote: "you miss 100% of your shots you don't take". After having this ingrained in my mind for so long, I've come to realize that I am almost always disappointed with myself. Every opportunity I take advantage of, I'm always disappointed--It's like I constantly become blinded: I look at the situation negatively and see how I could've done things better. I feel like a plethora of opportunities lead to an infinite loop of disappointments.

Do I need to dispel my blindness and take the time to cherish the small victories in life? or learn to let things go when mistakes happen? Do I need to stop consistently blaming myself for anything that goes wrong in life? Do I need to sink back down to reality and accept the fact that "I can't always be the hero"?

An endless list of conundrums.

I've always been an independent person with full confidence in my ability to get things done. I put an endless amount of faith in my teammates and I'm righteous about "if you're unhappy, it's because you let yourself become unhappy". Even after so many disappointments, I feel like it's my duty in life to hold on to my humanized values, intuitive sense of honesty, and truthfulness.
