Do I have regrets in life?

Short answer, no.  All the challenges that I have gone through in my life have made me the person I am today and therefore, I would not want to change that.  Being said, there are probably a few things that I could have done without, but then, I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am today.

There are some guys in my past that I probably should never have dated for a variety of reasons, but seeing as they are no longer in my life, I ultimately made the right decision in regards to them and them not being involved in my life.  That said, I have not sworn off men, but I have many qualities that I am looking for and they apparently are hard to find, as I am still single and do not really see that changing anytime soon.

As I ponder my educational future, I wish that I had transferred as many classes as I could have when I was finishing at one school and moving on to another.  I only transferred the classes I needed at that time, but now, looking at going back, I could have used those few classes I didn’t transfer.  While I do not mind redoing the computer classes – as 15 year old courses are really not that great on a resume, I wish that the law class and organizational behaviour had been transferred.  It is not that they are difficult classes, but it is two more classes and the costs that come with them before I am done the course I am looking at.

Sometimes I wish that I had not moved when I did, but that is only due to the changes in my work life which is causing some changes in my finances.  The home I am in now is the type of home I always wanted to have, and if I had known what the economy and the cost of housing was going to do, I would have bought it when I originally was shopping back in 2004.  But of course, hindsight is always 20/20 and it has all worked out in regards to my housing.

A positive thing is that I wish I had adopted my kitties earlier, as they make me happy and keep me company.  But if I had adopted kitties earlier, I wouldn’t have had the two that I have now.  While I wouldn’t mind replacing my tabby cat some days, I do love him no matter how crazy he drives me, so I guess that ultimately works.

Ultimately, life is good and I am happy with where I am.
