In response to the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/daily-prompt-4/

Write about a time you had a Goldilocks experience, exploring different choices and finally arriving at “just right.”

Sometimes I think my whole life is a Goldilocks experience.

But actually, I think in general people spend too much time (including me) wondering if there is a better choice out there, to the point where they either don’t choose at all and continue to wait, or do choose and then regret it for a long time after wondering if they made the right choice.

We need to find joy in what we have and stop going down the road to regret every time we make a choice.  Do I wonder if the other bee houses or the other hummingbird feeders would have looked better in our yard?  No.  Because what’s important is giving those mason bees a place to live and the hummers a place to get lunch.  Now, if only those bees would hatch and the hummers would come – I can hardly wait to post those pics!!
