    Save my money more, recognize that my parents weren't hellish demons out to destroy my life, actually learn to play the piano properly instead of spending my mandated practice time alternating between playing songs poorly and moving the hands on the clock forward. Work harder in school-- I floated by on just natural academic ability, but if I'd actually worked for it, I can only imagine where I would be now. I would value my personal relationships more than I did and treat people better. And I wouldn't be afraid to speak up and be outgoing like I was.

    I don't regret the way my life has progressed, but if I could do it over, I wouldn't mind either.

    I wish that I have time to do a makeover...I will give it to someone who will actually use it and be happy with it..

    The times I did not obey God when I should of- I would go back and redo these moments. With this redo it would also reach out to those that I didn't minister the gospel of Jesus to- that God told me to in the past. I don't want anyone to be affected by me not obeying God, God is awesome and I want them to all know Him and the love shown by Jesus on the cross, than he went on to defeat hell and rose from the dead to save us all, even though not one of us deserve it..
    So since I can't have a do-over- I will strive to obey God at all times and His grace and mercy covers me. I will bear more fruits than ever, continually giving my life as a sacrifice, because none of this is in vain. Without Jesus I would of never been able to get up from all that has been sent to tare me down and destroy me. I know where my help comes from and following Jesus I will never, ever have a reason to be ashamed!

    I would go back and re-do high school.  Now that I look back at it I didn't go through those four years the way I should have.  I wasted a lot of it with stupid stuff.  But, hey, that's what being a teenager is all about, right?  Making bad decisions and learning from them for your adult life.  I still wish I knew then what I know now though.

    Have a new kitchen fitted, and the old one extended so that I can do even more baking.
    oh sorry wrong sort of do-over, well I was right first time I've nothing to regret or do again. Maybe listen with more attention to some of Gradma's stories.
