    I would not change anything...there are things sometimes i dont like but i learn from them and the most important is to appreciate whart i have and  LIFE because each day it is a lesson.

    So to answer your question ii would not change anything about me, i learn from the things i donĀ“t like to make my life better and happier.

    I would like to stand up for myself more. I sometimes let people take advantage of my kidness.

    If I could change one thing about myself it would be patience. I would have more patience.

    I would like to be able to say "no" sometimes. I end up agreeing to do things for other people a lot of the time and it eats into my own time. Don't get me wrong, I like to help people out when they need help, but sometimes I need to stand up for myself and be more assertive at times.

    To be less hot tempered. I want to be patient with everything but it's very difficult for me to o just that.

    my negative attitude.. definately.  every day is a battle to think positively when its so much easier to get angry and lash out when things go wrong.

    Why go messing with perfection?  Actually there is only one thing I would like to change and that is my weight. I'm not over weight but would like to lose a few kilograms to make cycling up mountains easier. Other than that, I'm very happy in my own skin.

    Maybe become a little more proactive. It's not that I am not but I sometimes tend to take it as it comes and not bother much to take an initiative.

    I would learn to say "No". Because its my weakness that I can not say "No" to every one.

    I would get a college degree...but at age 62, to what end?  I may as well continue to be self-taught and pick and choose the topics I care about to expand my knowledge base.  Does that make sense?

    I would want to let things be. I, sometimes, hold on to little things for a very long time, when I should just let it go - this is one thing I would change about me.

    I would go with the flow. Having learned a lesson at work that complaining only angers management, I stay off the radar now. It is sad that it is not looked upon kindly to express oneself and we live in USA. Nobody wants to hear the truth. I am trying to teach this to my kids so that they will have an easier time in life.

    Oh I would change my temper.  Sometimes it's so easy for me to lose my temper and I have to check myself.  I would change those times.

    I can't just pick one...I think I would change all the things I have control over changing (my weight, tobacco use, my haircut, etc.) and let go of the things I cannot change (things about my body that are genetic).

    I want to become more driven when doing something.  I want to be gun-ho.  Currently, I am lazy and fearful of trying.  But that is something that is fixable.

    May be my lack of commitment sometimes. Sometimes I fall late in school, relationship, sport  due to the fact that I lose commitment of the may... Which I am working on it. I have managed to be committed but I want to excellent.

    It took me a while to decide because there were way too many choices, but as I surveyed my options, I felt the greatest reward would come from being more grateful for what I already had and not spending so much time pursuing what I didn't have. Thanks for asking! The answer to this question provided much clarity for me.

    I think I am too trusting and lack self-confidence. I have never been good at standing up for myself and tend to belief people to easy. That lead to a lot of use and abuse by those that should have been friends, family, coworkers.

    I always tried to help people out, but when you need help yourself you will learn who your true friends are!
