    If you could go back to a certain point in your life and start over, would you do it?

    In a word yes, but at t he same time a profound no.  It might have made my childhood easier if I was as awake then as I am now but it wouldn't have been much of a childhood as there was a lot of stuff I learned on waking up that I am glad I didn't know at the time. Catch 22 I guess.

    I really wouldn't. I've enjoyed my journey so far and the past is the past. I try to live in the present and look forward to tomorrow. I like where I am...it's fun!

    When I first read this question I immediatly thought of the hard times in my life that I wanted to undo.  Then I realized that each of those times taught me a lesson and looking back on them now, I wouldn't want to change them.  Yes, some were really hard and hurt alot, but I now see what they taught me and how they helped me.

    In a heartbeat ... yes ... I'll never finish the projects I have at the present time and would like the chance to have even more to finish at the next opportunity for a reset.

    I would go back to my senior year of high school and redo and undo many of the decisions that I made from that point through the end of my college years. I would not want to start over; just correct some things.....

    Absolutely. I've had to overcome a lot of regret and bad decisions in my life. If I could go back about 5 years and fix the big mistakes I've made, I would love that. I know you are suppose to live with no regrets but there are some that stay with you for awhile.

    I've actually thought about this question from time to time. On one hand, it would be great to go back and right all of my wrongs and possibly attain a little more success. On the other hand, I feel that I had to go through everything that I've gone through in order for me to be the person that I am today.

    Every mistake I made, every success I have celebrated, absolutely every lesson I've learned, has made me into who I am. If I were to go back to any part and start over, I wouldn't be the woman I am today. I'm not perfect by any means, but I am content with who I am becoming. Therefore, I wouldn't change much of anything. The only thing I would possibly change is my attitude, even though a minor change such as that could possibly cause major shifts in everything.
