Now that I think about it there are a lot of things, but I think the one thing that has stood out in my mind more often than anything else is the idea that every time I've ever listened to someone else, rather than listen to my own instincts (which has not been often) some disaster has happened.
It's usually been a matter of me having some instinct or awareness that something someone wanted to do (and I didn't) was a bad idea. Then, because I know how I so often stay persistent and don't go with someone else's idea, I've second-guessed my own concerns and done things their way, in order to "reasonable" or "fair". On those few times when I've done that some horrible thing has happened. So, my "one thing" would be that I would have gone with my own good sense and instincts 100% of the time - not 99.8% of the time. (I've known other people who say the same kind of thing.)
Sure, lilly a different life altogether...interesting! & well, you got a chance to live your alter self in writing..isn't it? Ride your imagination over how it would have been like if you were a model, contrast it with what you do today & probably write stories!
With the benefit of current knowledge, I probably would have done almost everything differently! Of course I couldn't have known that at the time. However, I have no regrets and I have much to be thankful for and so much more to do.
I wish I could go back to when I was about 24 and have prevented myself from gaining the weight that I've gained. I know I can lose it, but it would be easier if I could just jump into a time machine and stop myself from gaining it in the first place!
