    If you could undo one decision you made in life - good or bad - what would it be?

    I'd probably ask a girl out in high school to the prom.  I asked her to ask one of her friends for me, who turned me down, but she seemed interested.  I got the hint, but didn't act.  Times I wish I would have, she was a sweet girl.

    Every decision I ever made has lead me to this very moment that I am in now. If I hadn't married my first husband (it was a difficult marriage), I wouldn't have my children. If I had never experienced codependent feelings for the men in my life, I wouldn't be able to help other women who struggle with it themselves.

    With that being said, if I could still have the life I have right now and undo one thing - I think it would be to keep that well-paid job I had and go to school with a higher income. Maybe. I'll never know. I really am very happy with how things are going right now. I think I'll just be grateful for where I am right here and now.

    Great question - you really got me thinking early on a Saturday morning. Blessings!

    Yes - what Kathleen said - almost to the "T". 
    There is an hour in my past that I look at occasionally and wonder what would have happened if I had chosen differently.  Sometimes it haunts me.  But I know that life is a classroom and all my biggest lessons were lived as a result of the decision I made that night.  I wouldn't be the person I am now if I had gone down a different path.  When I knew better, I did better.
    Good question.

      Looking back occasionally helps me to remember why I don't have to regret anything since it all led me to this moment. I'm glad I'm not alone. smile

    I have often wished that I had not chosen to accept a supervisor's position because I lost a job that I really loved.  However, the one bad experience in my life forced me to search my soul.  I was able to follow another path that has given so much more.

    I would have worked full time when first married.
