Re: When you look back at your life

I honestly would not change one single thing. I wouldn't have the wonderful life that I have now if something was done differently on my road through life. Woman Happy

Re: When you look back at your life

I would go back to about age 16 and my focus would have been on a good education and career.  That alone would have changed everthing that came after.

I am grateful and thankful. You learn from your mistakes and there is no such thing as a perfect life. Ups and downs are part of living. Challenges, decision making, these are all part of learning.

I adored our sons, and teaching where I did and am still in touch with many former students.

 

I did the best I could with a pure heart, but wish I could make some changes.

 


I bolded the above.  I think most people would say the same.  I agree.

Absolutely nothing!  Life hasn't always been a bed of roses, but the good exceeds the bad.  I cannot complain.

My life is better than I could have ever imagined, in spite of my youthful ignorance.

Re: When you look back at your life

I wish I would have stayed at my high school and not transferred to another one merely because I was afraid of water and the high school had a policy of you don't graduate unless you can swim across the pool.

 

This decision taught me to run away from difficult situations and I still do that today.
