Hmmm... a big one would be not having as much fun as I COULD have had in High school. Such a simple and sweet time... and you never get it back!
Interesting question, I'm sure you'll get many responses. Over 30 years ago, a young woman who was a college student studying to be a social worker wanted to interview me for her project. The question was "Where would you like to be in ten years and what would you like to be doing?" Along with me she had interviewed an elderly woman and another in her 30s. At the end of the interview she told me that the key is not to regret a thing. We make our decisions when we do and at that time they seem sound. I was 18 then, now at 50 I have not regretted any decision, not because they were good decisions (some were not) but because at the time they seemed sound. ....And I am where I had predicted doing what I had hoped.
No decision is wrong for the time or moment that you made them. Life is not about regrets, it is about learning from the past, and making a better future. I have no regrets. All my mistakes have been what has made me who I am today.
Most people with a conscience have a regret in life or two. I've been able to go back and correct one, and maybe the day will come when I can correct the other regret as well. There's always the old saying - could of, would of, and should of. Keep on hubbing
I think not realizing that being young and having no responsibilities except going to school and chores to do around the house were actually the good ole days and most of us didn't even realize it.
Cheating on my boyfriend, Not getting to takethe time totry & find my realdad efore hehad died; Breaking my promise tomy grandpap on his deathbed, Letting go of old friends & losing touch with all of them.list goes on & on & On but imonly human we all make mistakes.
If I could go back in time, there are some chioces that I would change. However, life doesn't work that way. My faith teaches me that everyhthing works out for the my good because I believe. Even though I make mistakes, I am grateful for every experience and life lesson.

How do you follow your heart?I had a young girl, out of the blue, ask me that the other day through the drive-in window at McDonald'sI gave her what I've found in life on the matter, but I think it's an interesting question, and I'd like to hear your thoughts on this.How do you follow your heart?

Is there that one mistake you have made that you wish you could go back and make it a 'do over'?Is there some decision you made that later turned out to be one that you later regretted, big time? Hindsight truly does seem to be 20/20. If we knew all of the answers before we make a choice, it...
