What would you do differently,if you could do it all again?
I would look before I leap.
The way I treated my mother when I was going through my teen years. I look back at those years every so often and I regret those times like no other. Thankfully I have a great relationship with her. Maybe I wouldn't if we didn't go through those troublesome times. I don't know. Either way I still regret it.
Try harder to accomplish anything I wanted before, just in general be more focussed on tasks. It's amazing what the brain can accomplish when applied, cliché, yes, but so very true.
I would revel more, in the baby hood of my children, and less than in their tomorrows.
Until time, itself ends, there will be a tomorrow...........I would indeed, more embrace and hug " today".
The 'todays' and the " tomorrows" of my children's growing, have passed...........
I, so very regret this thing.
I would've taken the job at the local newspaper & met w/ Kimberly Kirberger (both when I was in high school), & would've gone to college for the education AND soccer, and followed-through with it the first time (not the 4th).
I also would've gone through with publishing my childrens' books when I was 16.
There's always that "what if...", it seems! =]
I would have spent more time with my brother. I would have taken more business classes. I would have spent more time exploring other degree options in college. I would have been more persistent in exercising regularly. Good question Apostle Jack...it makes me reflect about so many things in my life.
The first thing that comes to mind, is not sell a house I owned in Brisbane to move to the Sunshine Coast. This seems very materialistic, but keeping and renting the house would have offered more options in the long run than what is available to me now.
Other than that, laughed longer and harder than I already have.
I would have followed my dream of being a writer instead of doing what was "practical" to earn a living. I feel that I would have been happier. But, fortunately, it's not too late.
I would have left my husband sooner before I lost my spirit (even if the kids were younger). I wouldn't have let him crush my self esteem in so many different ways. I now realize how happy I can be without someone controlling in my life and always bringing me down. There are always options...
If I could do it again, I would go back to my childhood years and spend much more time making friends of all kinds.
I would not take anything personally. I would spend less and save more. I would eat more chocolate
I would have taken some more hard turns earlier in live. It is easy to go with the flow. However, I've realized this quite a few years back, and am treading off the beaten path. It is never too late
I would be born in a totally different time era than the one I was born in.
I would only buy what I needed and stop buying crap that is waste of money (which is the path I'm on now)
I would not have been so critical of people when I was younger,
I would have invested in real estate when I was younger and on my own,
I would have been kinder to myself sooner and realized I'm just human after all
I would do nothing different with my life......its' been a learning experience all the way and I am grateful for it.
I would have not have returned home to New York when I left the USN with my daughter. I should have stayed in the Southern States and only visited NY.
But who knew?

My daughter leaves school next year and has decided that she wants to study English Language, Theology, Psychology and Media Studies at A level. If I were sixteen again I think I'd want to study Environmental Science, amongst other things. If you were sixteen again what disciplines would you like...
