    Follow your dreams. Keep your goals in view. Live the life you want to live and do whatever it takes to make that happen. Don’t allow fear to consume you; instead let it propel you forward. Celebrate the successes no matter how small because small successes can be just as sweet as the big ones. Stay positive because negativity can kill your dreams and prevent you from reaching your goals. Life is all about choices. You decide how you want it to play out. Choose wisely. Concentrate each day on making a difference in someone else’s life. Nurture your relationships as they are truly what counts in this lifetime. Laugh and laugh some more. Live each day with your priorities in mind. Do not allow guilt to consume your life. Stop doing long enough to enjoy being. Lighten up and don’t take life so seriously, enjoy the process. Share your love through kind words, thoughtfulness and affection. Hug those you love and smile at strangers. Relish the memories of every stage of your child’s life. Be good to yourself everyday. Feed your body and mind with the best. Relax, deep breathe and give yourself a break. Strive to be happy, not perfect. Always be grateful and live in the moment. Tomorrow will take care of it self. Take every opportunity to spend time with those you love.

    This is a fantastic question. Don't let guilt rule your life. Live every day as though it is your last. Tell the special people in your life that you love them. Don't be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. Don't be scared to try something, as failure is worse than never having tried at all. Don't dwell on the past as life is too short for regrets.

    What a great question. Um, I'd say stay out of trouble, focus in your studies and don't let anything or anyone drift you away from your dreams.

    hmmm.... interesting.

    I'd start by investing my money elsewhere rather than where i have been investing. 3 years could've changed things significantly with the right investment.

    I just came out of a 3 year relationship and at the time when i met her i also had met someone else that i had stopped talking to because i fell so quickly for her. i might've given the other girl a little more time of the day to find out if we could've had something deeper, closer, everlasting.

    I may have not have made a few purchases i regret.

    i may have chosen the road less traveled in certain regards like where i went on a friday night that is my usually spot giving up my chances for adventure in trying new places and meeting new people.

    It's funny, but it's the first thing that came to mind: I would tell myself that being pregnant is not an excuse to eat everything in sight...and out of sight. wink

    That I should stop caring about my mother's opinion so much.  Living your life in order to secure the approval of others is a colossal waste of time.

    I would say, Make decisions based on what you want to do and what you'll enjoy, not based on what is the "right" decision or that is going to better set you up for the future, because you never really do know what is "right".  Sometimes the smart decision is actually a bad decision, take risks and follow your passion.

    This is a really good question :-)
    I would have hung onto my house instead of running away from it because I was so desperate to leave my husband ( due to an abusive relationship). I literally left with the clothes on my back and a bookcase.  I just wish I'd been strong enough to have 'battled it out,' but I didn't at the time. I know there are more important things in life than material things but it sure would have come in handy in getting my future together..  But at least I have my sanity now.

    Be here, now, more. 

    Relax into the flow of things.

    Be comfortable not having to know what the future holds.

    Trust, relax, rest in the knowledge that the universe wants only good for you.

    Laugh more, love always, release fear and doubt, BE.
