If I Had A Second Chance?/

    Often at times we ask ourselves, why, how, and don't stop to wonder why , how or what drove us to our action.. If you had a second chance, what would you do differently....
    I wish I stayed in class.. I wish I always answered my mum Yes!. Most especially, I wish O had Listen.

      I'd redo the last three years of my life. but then, who's to say something better won't come of it?

        Eventually something better will.. But you will agree with me that nothing is ever the same.. And moments come but once.. But I ain't saying is bad just because we can't take them back.. But it helps when we realize that things that made our ship sank once upon a time so we never get to sail that same route

          Very true. A moment only comes once.
          And yes, it does help when we learn from our mistakes and don't do again what we've done.
          What I've noticed is that the more I regret something I've done, the more likely I am to do that thing again. And the less confidence I have in myself. Regret is a difficult thing to deal with but one we must move on from if we want to live healthily.
            I can think of so many moments: if I had just....
            I was discussing this with someone just the other day. If I had just not done that, my life would not be the way it is now. It was true. But...it does not follow that my life has lessened in its quality.

            Let me share this experience with you.. A boy who was a very slow learner, it took him three hours to understand what people understood in 30 minutes.. Always coming out last, always made to answer questions in class, so it's peers could laugh, he spent 5 years trying to make a difference atleast to prove in class that he was one percent smart.. He left High school, the poorest result was He's at a point, he wanted to run to a place where no one can find him. He was could Frank later know as "shame that shine". Why do I love this story.. To be brief, "Mr Shame that shines" later grew to "Success that smiles". How and when.. Frank spent 11 years trying to change is life, He new from the very start that he wasn't bright, he realize that he need to learn, He spent days and endless night trying to prove that he could rise and shine.. At a point he wanted to run.. Who wouldn't ? 12 years of constant try to amend one mistake, and still couldn't fly.. I would. But My frank a.k.a Shame that Shines, later rose to the top, how did he learn, what made him not to quit ?.. He only realize that is life was dear to Him that created Him.. Our being alive today simply means God loves us and has a perfect plan for us.. As long we refuse to quit. We may not always get it right, but at least we realize we are wrong and we are striving to do best. It is all that matters. Some how we've survive till this very moment, that has to count for something

      I would change nothing. I see no need to change anything in which has happened in my life. Everything happens for a reason, even if that reason isn't yet known. What you can do is to move forward after learning from the experience for which you put yourself into to begin with by your own choice.

        Very impressive
        With this lesson learnt
        You are everything that glows..
        But now I know if you had to live today twice..
        You will change everything that made you cry and stole your precious time.

                Have you stop to wonder why ..
                Tomorrow is just another reason to want ?
                Our life has not always being enough
                We always at one point wanted more..
                No matter how brighter each day seems
                Deep down we realize that something needs to be done.

      It will but only if you are willing to try
      Putting to practice everything you've learnt
      Comfort is one big paradise in our heart
      But it wouldn't count if we care less the thing that has kept us in the dark for so many years..
      We will change our entire life if we could live it twice.
      The truth.. There is so many wish we didn't get

    I think that everything I have done in the past has made me who I am today.  I try to live without doing things I will regret and it works for me. 

    One question, why is this thread categorized under "Books, Literature and Writing"?

      I love poetry I guess I was too blind to see..
      Can it be changed...
      You are an inspiring story..
      I wish life could always be this right
      Knowing when to fight and call a retreat
      So far you've live a life.. I have always secretly craven for
      And I must say. If this much about you is true
      You are everything we will be
      If we had a second chance

        I am too a fan of poetry,
        but find it often misplaced
        in places where we cannot find
        its true meaning.

        Regret is the desire to do what is impossible:
        Change the past.
        As this is no simple task,
        I attempt to shape what I can:
        The future.

          This is a good hub..
          It's a whole new world..
          But remember Today is what tomorrow brings
          The future is what we build..
          It started sometime ago Yesterday..
          The past is always present

    I guess most of the things I have done and regretted, I learned something from so there really isn't much I would redo except maybe try to be closer to God
