Living Life Over
August 19, 2008 9:17pm CST
If I had my life to live over...I would have talked less and listened more. I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was strained and the sofa faded. I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth. I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed. I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage. I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass stains. I would have cried and laughed less while watching television - and more while watching life. I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding patter if I were not there for the day. I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, would not show soil or was guaranteed to last a life time. There would have been more "I love yous" ... more "I'm sorrys"...but mostly, given another shots at life, I would seize every minute... look at it and really see it...live it...and never give it back.

Eloquently spoken! If I could ahve live my life oer I know that most of what I have done in the past, I would do differently, but then when I look back, some of those experiences has caused me to be where I am today - that said - the experiences of life should always make us better and I am glad mines does.
