If you had the chance to go and change one thing in your life what would it be and why. That one thing you always wanted to do over again, what would that be? I will admit i made plenty of mistakes. Most of them i know look at more like life lesson then mistakes. but there are a few things i would like to change if I could. I would like to have gone to college. I would have maybe had my first child later on in life. Or had them all closer together... What is your second chance wish?

What?!! I can only change ONE thing...- lol. I don't think I would change anything, it might have diverted my journey in a direction I wasn't able to take or to appreciate. I too had my daughter at a young age, and passed up the opportunity to go to college. Maybe that was the way it was supposed to be for me. Go back to college now 34momma, it is never too late. I am back in school and believe that it is never too late to try. I guess if I could make a second chance wish though, I would wish that I could have had more patience and understanding when I was younger. That was a hard lesson to learn!

A second chance would be so nice. But we must be careful what we wish for. To have the chance to correct a mistake, might change my present. If I really could change one thing in my life, I would go back in time and spend more time with my grandmother. After she passed away, I read her diary. It was heartbreaking to read passages where she thought I was neglecting her since I had grown up. I had been so close to her as a child. If I could just go back, I would spend more time with her and tell her how much she meant in my life.

i was very close to my grandparents. i was there to the end with all of them. but there are times i wish i would have spent more time. not regrets, or wanting to change what is going on now, cause rather i was there are not they were going to pass away. just a friendly wish.

It would be wonderful to be able to go back in time and relive or change a moment in our lives. As we get older, we (hopefully)get wiser. We could turn back the clock and apply that wisdom to a time in our life when we were young and foolish.

If I had the chance to go change one thing in my life? Well, not signing up for that first credit card would be it! And then not signing for any of it is the other! Hate the feeling when you open the letter box only to find it filled with debt tabs!

One thing I wish I could change would be to graduate from high shcool instead from my house. I never got the chance to graduate with my old classmates, or go to prom. I do not have any memories or anything to talk about with my kids.

you can talk about other things with your children. you can tell them how much you missed out on not graduating and how you think it's best for them to do it so they don't end up feeling like you do.

I think every one have rights to have second chance... ^^ It's natural if someone make a mistakes, and learn not to do some mistakes again.. ^^ I don't have it, because I don't regret what already happen in my life's... ^^

this is not about regrets, this is just a playful topic about second chances

I have made alot of mistakes in my life time and I wish I could have been more aware at the time but the one thing that I really wish I could change is the wrong wording in trying to explain how I feel to a best friend...Either A thought it out more clearly or just kept quiet!

I would like to live my life all over again. I would like to face life with today's experience and the youth and vitality of 20 years ago. I know I would be doing things totally differently. You see I have been a bad judge of character and had chosen people to be my friends who were worse than enemies- they had used me to their advantage and I had given up the best years of my life thinking it had all been for a good cause only to realize that I had been helping them amass wealth at my expense. If I had a second chance I would certainly change all that and do things for myself that I had sacrificed for the common cause.

I try not to live my life thinking "what if".. what if I did that or didn't do that? To me, that's a terrible way to live your life! You have to take everything in stride, the good and the bad.. and just keep moving forward. Although there's a ton of things that I probably should or shouldn't have done in the past - I don't live my life with regrets. I try to do everything I can for me and for my satisfaction and although I may have made mistakes along the way, I believe they help you grow and shouldn't be looked at as regrets. Just my take!

this is not about living in regrets, or living in the past. this is just one thing you would like to do over.

Hi 34momma! I often think "what if"? What if I could go back and change the mistakes I made or the things in my life that brought me pain? Even though I have a pretty good life now, there are things in my past I wish I could change. One regret I have was I always been a shy and quiet person and I sometimes allowed people to take advantage of me. There have been situations in my life where I wish I could go back to and stand up for myself. I also regret me missing out on several opportunities to enrich my life because of my social anxiety.
