The Ghost of Almost

19 Jan

The book you didn’t finish writing would have changed the lives of many people.

The band you gave up on would have radically changed the world of music even more so than The Beatles.

The family vacation you didn’t take would have been the last time your whole family would be together and happy. Your dad would die two weeks later.

The dog you didn’t save from being euthanized at the local shelter would have saved your son from drowning that cold day in November.

The orphan who sits on her bed praying for a family to come take her home and love her will never get adopted. She will become homeless and die of a drug overdose. If she had been adopted, she would have become the next Mother Theresa.

The man who never proposed to his girlfriend out of fear of ending up like his parents died, sad and alone.

The vacation to Hawaii you wanted to take twenty years ago, but never did, would have changed your whole life. You would have met your soul mate and eloped on the beach. You would still be happily married today.

The girl you see on your bus every day that sits in the same seat with the same black fingernail polish and the loneliest look in her eyes wants to kill herself. If you had sat next to her that last day, you would have made a new friend. She would have been a bridesmaid at your wedding. Her parents were the only ones that went to her funeral.

If you had quit the corporate job that makes you miserable, you would still have a good relationship with your children.

The homeless man on the street corner that you drive by without a second glance would have used that dollar you gave him to buy a lottery ticket. He would have won millions and used the money to help find a cure for aids.

The old lady sitting in her rocking chair talking to her grandchildren about life has terminal cancer. She tells her grandchildren stories of love and adventure from her younger days. Her grandson will ask, “So did you do everything in life you always wanted to, Grandma?”

“Almost,” she says.

      If she had been adopted, she would have become the next Mother Theresa? What does the author thinking of?
      And whose Theresa?’I WANNA KNOW!’

  6. rami ungar the writer January 21, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

    It’s stories like the one above that make me want to live my life to the fullest. Hopefully someday, I can look back and have almost no regrets.

  7. ourjourneytothesea January 21, 2013 at 9:48 pm #

    Great post to encourage others to live life to the fullest. Though I don’t believe in dwelling on the “what ifs..”

    • Taylor Devost January 26, 2013 at 10:30 pm #

      it’s more about doing the things we have always wanted to do, but somehow life got in the way of doing them. for instance, going on vacation – perhaps work got in the way. adopting a dog- you just never got around to it. etc.

    If you spend your life thinking of what could have been, you can get so lost in thought that you miss what yet could be. Ask me how I know sometime. Nice post nevertheless, if a bit wishful.

    • Cherrie Zell January 22, 2013 at 8:16 am #

      Oh, I think the idea is not about dwellng on what might have been but more about recognising that everything we do can have unintended consequences. The wishful part is that all those unintended consequences could be beautiful. The message I’ve taken from Taylie Jay is that we should recognise when fear is preventing us from engaging with those around us and ask ourselves each time if that fear is warranted. That way we are open so that we don’t miss what is yet to come. I don’t know if that was the intended message but that’s where I ended up.

      • Taylor Devost January 22, 2013 at 5:30 pm #

        You got the exact message I was trying to send, Cherrie! Thank you so much for listening… It means more than any of you will ever know!

    Your words were well chosen and truly thoughtful. I’ve also seen the ‘almost ghost’ described as a type of ‘loss’ related to the angst of what will never be.

    We’re given so many opportunities, yet we look right past them. We dwell on outcomes and pre-judge the situation before participation. We rely solely on our judgements of the future.

    I think as the human experience continues to unfold we should embrace each moment and live vicariously, be curious of the world around us, and take chances.

    This was a beautiful post.

    I enjoyed your insight on reality. We are all guilty of similar things at some point in our life, many times with out realizing it, actually most of the time. Has society dulled our senses?

    Made me think of this

    Could’ve been so beautiful
    Could’ve been so right
    Could’ve been my lover
    Every day of my life
    Could’ve been so beautiful
    Could’ve been so right
    I’ll never hold what could’ve been
    On a cold and lonely night

    Really great thoughts and a really great article, that make someone thinking about the life.
    Who doesn’t think “But what if…?” Maybe we should stop questioning and start living our lifes…’Cause “almost” doesn’t help us in any way, but it’s with us every second. But why do we have all this doubts? It’s like “the unbearable lightness of being”

    This is really sad. It makes me think of my best friend Katie who died last year from a drug overdose. She had the most potential of any one I ever met. GORGEOUS. TALENTED. FUNNY beyond measure. She couldn’t figure out what path to take and thus, was never really rooted here. Lots of “Almosts”…

    May I simply just say what a relief to discover a person that actually knows what they are discussing on the web. You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people should read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since you certainly possess the gift.|

  96. perfectlonelyworld January 26, 2013 at 2:44 am #

    This is amazing. It’s so inspirational, and bittersweet, and poetic. I guess these days, we’ve become scared of going for what we really want, that in the end, we miss so many opportunities and memories.
    This also reminds me, I should keep writing that half finished novel I started writing 2 years ago…

  97. julien2haller January 26, 2013 at 3:56 am #

    As we stand on the cusp of “tomorrow,” there is an infinity of possibility laid out before us. But once we take that first step into “today,” or are pushed into it by the unforgiving march of time, all are struck down except that one that is. What you call “almost” is the shell of infinity moulted away at each step on the journey of life.

    Great post!

    Sincerely,
    Julien Haller

    Well done on a elegantly and thoughtfully written piece. I do often think of ‘what if’ but I also marvel at ‘thank goodness’. I’ve been through a lot in my life but I have two beautiful little girls so am happy for what I have. Your post reminded me of the movie ‘Sliding Doors’ – have you seen it? Anyway, well done :)

    • Taylor Devost January 27, 2013 at 3:40 am #

      I have seen it actually. It was a beautifully written movie with a thought provoking sentiment. One action or inaction, one chance encounter, one random occurrence can be the difference between life and death. It’s crazy, but absolute truth. EVERYTHING we do or do not do in this life matters. Thanks for reading!! xo

    I believe in doing things and facing consequences , rather than not doing it & feeling the guilt wash over your face , So I agree with all the things you mentioned … :)

    This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
