If you could live your life over, knowing what you do now, would you?

    If you could live your life over, knowing what you do now, would you?

    Why or why not?

    You know, I really don't think I would. I have made some poor choices, experienced heart break, and barely made it through a stormy season in my life. It is all of those struggles that have lead me to where I am today, which is the best I have been thus far. If I were to go back and change some of the negative then the positive that resulted from it would also disappear. So I will keep my battle scars because they make me who I am, help me not to go backward, and inspire me to push foward. Great question.

    This is a great question that I bring up to people/myself from time to time...and a tough one.  It's easy to say of course I would, things would be so much better.  I wouldn't make the same mistakes that I did in the past, but I just don't think it works that way. 

    It's sort of a contradiction, not to mention a problem with the space-time continuum ;-)  Honestly, the only reason you're the person you are right now is because of the mistakes you've made in your past.  It's hard to appreciate the sun without the rain.  I hope that wasn't total nonsense.

    Not me, I'm too curious about what comes next.

    What a wonderful question. I would not make any changes to this/ my life. There is no need to fix what's not broken! Each life is unique in it's own way for it's own purpose.
