If you get a chance to go to your past and change something in your life, what would you change? What decision or what things you would like to change in your life?

The car accidents, I'd call in sick for every one of those days. I wouldn't have all the arthritis and health problems I have now. Take care.

Well, now I have cancer. My Mom used to say, "If it's not one thing, it's another." Thank you for the blessings and wishes of happiness.

I think it is good to continue your education if you could.

I would change my entire childhood. If I ever go back as an adult with the maturity that I have today, I would bring up that child in an entirely different way. But if I go back as a child, then my childhood was not really in my hands. There were circumstances over which I had (and would not have) control and then I cannot really change my parents outlook on a very many things. So going back as a child would not help me at all, rather I would again be stuck in a situation as a child, which I did not enjoy much.

Welcome. I also think that there are lots of things we might think we could have changed of the past, but we could not. I think we should now look at future and make the future better.

Personally I think if I would have a choice in something I could change in my past, it would be the choices I made in some of the situations in choices where I lived, or who I dated. The only issue is, would I be where I am at today, and who i am today if things could have been different like that as well. Would I be any happier and who I am as of today?

I also think that we should be happy with what we are in the present.

The past does not interest me. I am more interested in the present and the things I can do today in order to make a good future for myself and my family. Cheers!!

I also think it is now good to think about the present and sometimes it is good to look at past and learn from our mistakes and make the future better.

I would've chosen my words at a certain time... when I hurt the love of my life. It's been hard for her because of what I said... and that I really regret it. I didn't think those words will last so long. For those who believe that words disappear with wind... well they don't..

I also think that words once said can never be changed and it is always good to watch what we say in our life and say only good things.

I believe I would have held off on marriage and children. I missed out on so much when I was younger because I had a child and had to raise her on my own for alot of years. I would have waited on marriage also and furthered my education.

If I had the chance to go back and change one thing in the past I would have moved to Los Angeles rather than Canada when I left South Africa in the sixties. The weather has become important to me at my age and why should I spend six months in a cold climate and also be robbed of Vitamin D by always being greeted by dark skies and snowbanks in the street? Quite by chance I watched a program called Shahs of Sunset and was envious of the great weather they were having. Your days were longer.

if I could get that chances then I wanted to go back for 7 years ago and change my decision of coming to this country. another one if I could go to 5 years ago, I could never do the mistake of choosing my husband, I could research more about him and then that time I would kick him out of my life and that is the moment that I wish time could go to the past and I could correct the biggest mistake of my life

I am not sure that I would want to change anything, or at least not much. THings have not always been the best, but I have learned trough them. Sure I could have made some different choices or entered some different paths, but in the whole I don't think going back and change something would interest me that much.
