    If I were given a second chance? I would tell that person to keep their second chance. I've no need for one, considering I have come to accept the path my life took to get where I am today and I wouldn't trade any of the experiences and knowledge, which I gained during the journey. I live with no regrets and I love deeply. smile

    That is a really good question. I would change my career choice. Since I really love to help people, I would go back to school to become an Occupational Therapist.

    Do you mean ... Choices ?

    Anyway, if I had options ... beyond whats Destined ... which is just not possible ... but academically speaking ... I will once again choose the Right Course in Life ...

    For I have no regrets ... I am content, with The Destined ...

    Life ... Is carving one's own destiny ... to use one's head and Limbs ... For we have been Granted the Freedom, to Change ...

    I am a living Human ... I can do it ... Thats The Destined ... so can you ... we should not wait for "Chances" ... for things, to happen ... to Change, our lives !

    I would definitely pick up my childhood. I cherish those wonderful days without any worries, no hassles, you don't need to worry about your career, finance, life etc. I wish, I could really do it.

    If I was given a second chance, I'd probably seize the opportunity to reverse a past error in judgment. I wouldn't want to pick something too early in my life, though, or I imagine too much would change that I'd have a hard time adjusting to the reverberations of that alternate course.

    I wouldn't have lost my virginity to my ex-girlfriend (seeing as she turned out to be unfaithful). But, then again, that experience will inform my choices in the future. It goes without saying—(but I can't help but be redundant)—that mistakes make us wiser. I get to decide what I take from an experience. I’m the one who gets to decide what’s right for the next choice.

    It’s good that we regret (as long as we don’t dwell on it) if that means acknowledging a problem to avoid. Our judgment evolves due to our self-criticism or what we could title “retrospective or hindsight judgment.” I’m glad second chances don’t work that way (although I feel like we still get second chances in a way).

    Thanks for posing the question,

    I would redo raising my children.  I knew very little about their emotional well being and I would definately change some things if I could.

    That's an easy one. I would definitely go straight to college after high school instead of sitting out for so long. It is so much harder having to work full time and do the college thing.

    To do it again? And if it was something like; i had the wisdom to know what i knew now. I would try better. YET everything in the past is to be; to make me who i am. No one can be the better me, nor can i be the better someone. In certain aspects..all is accordingly perfect. I am my own design to inspire other designs?

    I think I would blow the ACT/SAT away now and get a great college scholarship, thereby saving money...and hopefully in turn a degree that would make me more money in the future

    WOW!  Very thought provoking question!

    I believe every decision we make in life has the ability to alter our lives in either a positive or negative way.  Life choices are never easy to make, and no matter what anyone says - there is at least one thing that we all would like a 'do over' on.

    I would not have allowed people to talk me out of being a writer early on--which is what I wanted to do.
