If I had one thing I could change about my life so far, it would be this: I would like to have been a better, more caring, more compassionate and empathetic person. It takes years for a person to be comfortable with those characteristics, I think. I haven’t had them—and may not still..for long enough to have developed any level of comfort. My favorite wife has a way of putting it that just fits:
“If wishes were horses we’d all have wings.”
I love her for that.
