I would not have gotten married! LOL Honestly, though, are you speaking of ourselves personally or anything in general? If it's in general, I'd try to stop the assault on the American Indian when the frontiersmen and Army were killing them and taking their land away from them. There could have been a compromise, I'm sure, which would have allowed them to keep their land while us 'newcomers' worked our way around them instead. Or... I'd try to see to it that President Lincoln had more security around him at Fords Theater that fateful night on April 14, 1865.

Very much so! I think he was one of the best presidents ever! He was honest, which is more than you can say for any modern-day presidents. He didn't have much formal education, he was self-taught for the most part. AND, my husband's birthday is the same as Lincoln's, and my birthday is April 14, the day Lincoln was shot. Because of those two things, I HAD to learn more about Lincoln.

Well personally, I have so much agenda in mind that I could think of if ever I have a time machine and I could change some events which occurred in my life. But here goes a piece of my thoughts. First in my agenda is to double my efforts when I was still single then; particularly in saving up for a future life with my own family. It's only after I got married that eventhough I was pretty well-off in my finances when I was still single, I am now experiencing days when we almost have nothing left for food. I couldn't say that I was lazy then because I used to participate being an Avon dealer and selling prepaid call and text cards of Smart and Globe. But I guess it was not enough. Next is my marriage. I consider myself as getting married at the right age but not at the right time. I was twenty seven when my husband and I got married, it was okay for me; however, we haven't got any savings then so we relied mostly on our parents' funds and blessings. It was really hard but life during marriage was tougher. Then, I would also want to add quality time with my parents and siblings. I'm the eldest of four. At present, we're okay but somehow, I regret not being able to give my younger siblings enough advice regarding life and choices in life. My youngest sibling, unfortunately, got pregnant even before she finished college. In one way, I'm really blaming myself. But if I had the chance to change these events, I would like to go through them again but this time, doing the more appropriate moves and actions for me and my loved ones.

nothing because before i do anything I always make sure that no matter what the outcome is i am prepared to accept it. that's why there isnt anything in my life that i regret and i wouldnt want to change anything because if i did. i wouldnt be where i am now. and i am happy about where i am.

If give me a chance to go back in time I wouldn't go to college and have a career as well as a family of my own.t I felt it was a waste of time for my university.Maybe I am a successful businessman and earn lots of money.

Somehow I do not like to go back and comtemplate on the past. Its only a wishful thinking.I just keep looking forward to the future with all good thoughts and optimism.i know tha past cannot be re-done what can really happen is in the present and the future.No one can go back and make a new start.These are my personal views.Good Luck to you.

No one perfect and I made many mistakes in the past. But looking back I realize that I wouldn't change a thing in my life. Those were my mistakes from which I learned a lot.
