A lot of us makes mistakes i our life and has passed on opportunities. There are some regrets but there are some good few decisions that are worth remembering for who we are today. I am so thankful for having my son despite the fact that I am still single and raised him all alone through these years. I have finished post grad despite the fact of having a difficult pregnancy. Many women at my young age then may have gotten abortion of have gotten divorce and many of my friends are not good in their marriage. That's one major decision of bringing up my son I really do am proud of even my mom. So what is the biggest decision in your life that you have ever made?

The best decision I've ever made in my life was deciding to marry my husband! He is absolutely wonderful and treats me so well. I have to admit that I was a little bit nervous about getting married at first since it was such a big step and I was pretty young, but it has been great and I am so happy with him!

Yes I agree we have to learn from our mistakes and the wrong decisions that we do. And I congratulate you for having quit smoking. I know its tough to quit such habit and its good for you to get a good education and be where you are now.

I have several good decisions that i have made in life, but the best one for me is that I serve the Lord whole heartedly. My children and my husband are great people and I love them more than life, but to serve the Lord only makes each one of our relationships so much better and more productive. God bless

That indeed is a very good decision and hard to keep as I have been there and tried that but am not successful at the moment. I would love to go back at that service to the Lord but I cannot question his ways...

The biggest decision was to keep my first baby. I was an unwed mom and chose to give birth to my child. I'm so thankful I did! I've made a lot of bad decisions in my life. But...we can always learn and grow from our mistakes and hopefully pass along some wisdom during our lifetime.

I guess my son, it the best decision I made in my life too, he is the one that is with me now as I get older and I am sick. After that I will say learning the computer and the internet, I have learned how to get just about everything I need on the internet, make friends, earn money writer for a living. Yes this is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Good for you! I truly believe that you chosen the right decision. I think the best decision which i made in my life was that i didn't listened to my mother who didn't liked my boyfriend (my husband at this time) and i followed my love. Many times she tried to separate us, even if i took pains to tell her that i love him enormous. At this time my mother understood or she adapted oneself to the situation and we are in good relations again. Thank you God! PS: I became pregnant before to solve the problem with my mom and i was a little bit scared it passed my quickly and i started to love my little baby (unborned yet) with all my body and soul parts.

best decision i made was when i decided to leave a relationship... i guess it was one of the best things i did for myself... believe me, as i made my mom proud and she felt as though she has lost a burden when i told her about it.

The biggest decision I ever made in my life is getting married. Though my parents doesn't approve of this coz we are both financial unstable,and He has a child, I stood by my decision. I told them that I want to live with this guy for the rest of my life..Now, I proove them wrong, my husband and I are now happily married for 10 yrs, have 3 kids of our own, living a good life and I could say that as years passes by our love for each other has remained strong...

So far, the biggest decision I made in my life is to get married at a younger age. For me, I think I am already ready to settle down and make a family of my own. I love the person very much and our relationship has been tested through time already.

I would like to highlight two decisions, rather than one. One was marrying my dear wife. She was the only one with whom I developed a love relationship before I got married, and today, after 22 years, I am still happily married to her. The other great decision I made (we actually, because it was a joint decision with my wife) was to buy my apartment unit, the place which I am still staying in. It is a lovely estate that many people would love to live in if they had he chance. When my wife and I committed to buy this apartment, our finances were much tighter and we had to take quite a big loan, but we looked forward (rather than backwards) and made the commitment because we told ourselves that our salaries would increase over time and we would be more comfortable financially over the years. Indeed it was for us, and as at today, our apartment is already fully paid up and we are still financially sound, and the current value of this apartment today is more than 4 times what we initially paid. So I was glad we made that decision and it proved to be a wise one.

OH, I have made plenty of bad choices in my life Gabrielle47, believe me. However, the one thing I did to right was marry my wife. I can't say she did the same, but I got lucky to say the least. I like to think she feels the same way about it, and I am pretty sure she does, but I know it was my best decision by far.

Hello, I think the best decision that I have ever made in my life before is to break off with this particular girl whom I have loved so much before. I ended the relationship because I really see no future with her. I know that good looks don't last long, and I have been blinded by entering into a relationship with her and not knowing that she's just in it for her "status" during that time which was just to have a boyfriend as an accessory to be paraded around for clubbing, etc. And also to have a boyfriend for a transport because I have a bike. I feel used and none appreciated in that sense, and moreover, I hate her really wild, partying ways. She claimed that she loves me so much but I don't see the change in her, so I have to let her go. That was hard, because I know she kind of fancied me but in the wrong way; I want her to change and she wasn't prepared to. She wasn't even wanting to lead the humble kind of relationship and still want to be wild and out partying with friends and asking me to tag along when I prefer some quiet time with her. Well, not quiet all the time, but once in a while, which she could not even give me. So, this is the best decision by far that I have made in my life; not to proceed with this damaging relationship though she's really damn gorgeous and has a very sweet nature in general.

The biggest decision that I have made in my life is the decision to keep my first born son. I was a college freshman facing an unexpected pregnancy. I had been with my boyfriend for 3 years but we had no plans to get married or move out of our parents homes. I continued with school and had my son. He will be 3 years old next week. My Fiance and I have both completed college. In fact I will receive ny Masters Degree in December and we just had our second son 3 months age. My children are my angels. I will always be thankful for my boys!

my best decision was to keep my first and second child. i was also not married and they were 12months apart. they are now 2 and 3. for some reason, especially with my first because i was only 20 - everyone just expected me to get an abortion. thank god i kept my baby girls. too bad about their dad. he was an abusive wanker, just separated 5 months ago. he is still harrasing me telling me that ive ruined the kids lives by not letting him live with us, but he will only be the same abusive wanker if i take him back, no matter how much he says he can change.
