A lot of you arent old enough to look back and say I wish I did this or I should have done this and then maybe I could have done had this ... But Are you satisified with your life as it is or are you striving for more ... What decisions do you regret? Which decisions were good and what was the outcome? Just wondering .....

I go through different phases of thinking is this if for life and what else could I be doing. For the most part I try and enjoy life and count my blessings. I have a home and three children,but sometimes I do wish for more. The only thing I really regret is not having the chance to live on my own before I got married.

i would go back and like to change a few things. i dont think anyone can say they did everything they way the wanted to. my life is not perfect and i wish i would of done things different but then i think ok if i changed this i would of never met my husband and would of never had the kids i have so therefore i wouldnt change anything liek that. now i would change some things like i would of spent more time with my grandpa before he past away and told him how much i loved him and how thank youful i was for him. my landlord that was like a dad i wish i would of expressed to him how much him being in our lives made a difference. i would of paid more attention to things that were going on so that i could have better memories of specail times that i didnt think were specail at that time. for every action there is a reaction so therefore if you change one thing you are going to change the things you dont want to change. the key is to think about that and know that even though you wish things would of been different you have great things that came from the bad.

I am delighted with life. Sure, there are times that test us all and make us feel bad but there are times where we are happy to be alive. Life is beautiful and we all very lucky to be part of this world, there are people struggling in the world to survive and exist so be grateful you are here.

Difficult question, really. I see my life as a constant and ongoing process of "reinventing myself" to reflect the best possible life with the information I have precisely in THIS moment. Does that make sense? I am satisfied with the journey and direction of my life, and recognize that it will be different five years from today. I am the sum-total of my experiences, so going back to change anything would make me something other than what I am, right now. ABSOLUTELY, there are things I wish I had done differently-- but that is history now, and beyond my capacity to change. What WOULD I have changed? I would have liked to have pursued my quest to "know myself" at an earlier age, rather than capitulating to the opinions of those around me that I was just "wasting my time" and "avoiding reality." I sense-- somehow-- that the reality I ended up with as a result of peer pressure and impulsivity is different than the one I would have chosen, had I stood up for myself and taken the time to deliberate. I would probably have married my Norwegian college girlfriend instead of my ex... but who really KNOWS how that would have changed things?

For the moment I must say that I am satisfied with my life and where it is headed. I did a lot of detouring in my younger years and there is a lot of wreckage in my past that it is time to clear up so that I may move on. And it has been neccessary for me to begin the process of clearing the wreckage for a long time, so yes I am satisfied with my life. I wouldn't trade the bad for good or anything else. Those detours taught me a whole lot about the world, myself, and the placement that I wish to attain within it.
