Changing one's decision.
"If I only knew then what I know now..." That lament pretty much sums up how I feel about the bad choices I made in the past.
Like everyone else, I have made bad choices in life because I am human. I am not perfect and I do not know the answer to every question, nor the solution to every problem. But making bad choices is inevitable, because we make so many choices in a day that it would be so darn impossible to make perfect choices all the time!
Okey, Okey! I regret quite a few of those choices I have made and there were times I wish that I had a time machine so I could go back and make a different choice... Or would I just be opening myself to a whole new set of choices that could be wrong?
Anyway I think it will be fun to think what choices we would rather have if the circumstances presents itself again. Here's some of mine:
I should have learned to drive.
I think learning to drive would be a more satisfying experience and practical rather than having to depend on my cat to take me where I want to and when I want to.
I am not saying I should wear one all the time, but I think every woman should own one after they turned 30.
Choosing a husband.
I husband should not be an accidental acquisition but he should be the result of a deliberate choice.
If I want something bad enough, I should have gone for it.
Actually every experience I have, whether good or bad, contributes to the person I am today. I have had wonderful moments and tragic ones. I have been incredibly happy and horribly depressed. I have had moments in my life that I sometimes wished had never happened.
But for every one of those moments, something was learned...
