We've made major decisions in life. Some turned out well, and some didn't turn out the way we expected it to. What's one decision you've made in life that you never regretted making? ...mine would be leaving my previous job. Now I'm doing something I really really love... playing music. :)

it's really good for u that u are doing what u love and what u want. nothing can be better and satisfying than that. i love music too and i love playing the guitar very much. someday i'd love to play music too and hope i could sooner than later. i've been learning to play the guitar all alone for almost two years now and i'm pretty good at it now. so, learning to play the guitar is one decision that i never regretted or would never regret.

hello thebassdude! good for you, for doing something that you like. Me? the one decision that i've never regretted and never will is leaving my irresponsible and abusive husband. I'd never been more happier, more focused on what i can really do based on my talents and skills and more loving and caring for those who are around me, especially my kids. Because of the bottled hurts, pains, discouragements, depression and abuse, i somehow lost my self and started losing interest in all things around me, even my kids. Now, i've got back on my own two feet and had completely regained my lost self-confidence and natural zest for life.

I'm happy for you. :) I'm sure you are a better person now because of that experience. You are now stronger. And that is good... both for you and your kids. :) And I', glad that your passion for life has been reignited. :) Let the flames burn strong... life is great. :)

One major decision that I made in my younger years and I never regret is marrying my husband. There are lots of doubts and confusing feelings back then and problems and issues tested our relationship but still I decided to turn other things down, give up my career and marry him. Now we are happily living together and relationship is getting stronger.

The major decision that change my whole facet in life, was when I dare choose my partner in life; even though all was against Us then... friends & family; but after 10 years of life with my chosen mate, my family had gradually accepted Us. I never did looked back, I challenge them, and I won. Life might not be the sweet emporium I dreamed about with him, but looking life without him, might have cause me greater sorrow if I have not done what I did. I never regretted any of it.

By far the best mayor decision I made was to marry. I was not supposed to marry so young. I was 18, with an IQ above average and 2 years of university and everyone expected other things of me. I stil did a lot of the things I wanted to do, like studying Literature when the girls grew up and starting to write which could be done at home. But no wonderful career could have been as meaninful as the life I led. I was lucky to marry a wise man who respected me as a person and loved me from the begining until the last day of his life.

I try not to regret anything, as any decision I made was what I wanted it to be at that time, although my best decision was definately taking the risk to work abroad for a while, as it completely changed my life, Im like a different person now and its all thanx to that risk.

In terms of decision making, I deliberate first before taking another steps. But in all of my decisions, this decision was too painful. I have to let go my mother. I have to say "YES" for her to marry again. My mom was separated to my dad. Just separated, no legal actions taken. Since there are no legal actions taken, there are possibilities that my dad and mom will be together and as their daughter, the eldest daughter, I longed that my family will be completed soon. It's seven years time already, a long wait was stopped when my mom fall in to someone whose in the same religion as her coz she shift to another religion 3 years after they separated dad. My dad is actually happy with his another family. I know it is unfair to her part not to allow her to do the same but I am after with the consequences might happen later on. I just wanted to protect her. I don't want her to fall in love again coz I don't want her to be hurt. I didn't say Yes The time they told me their plans. I was even shocked when I came to know that they were in a relationship to that guy. I was actually forced to that decision. My siblings told me to say YES for her to live in with that guy because when I am not around mom use to shout to them, quarrel them that leads to a mother-children fight. I don't want that to happen. I want a harmonious family. When I see that my siblings was hurt verbally and slightly physical, I decided to say YES for her to move out and live with her guy. I cried coz that is too hard for me to give up her. I love my mom so much. All I wanted for her is to be happy after the 7 years sadness. Now, they bear the fruit of their love to that guy. I so love the child she bear, whose my youngest step brother. I said, I didn't regret my decision of letting her go.. She's happy with her second hub now, she's happy to her baby and I love the baby too. We are happy now and my siblings are happy too. The pale house we are living are painted with rainbow. The happiness came back. Though we are not complete but each happiness and bonds we felt everyday made us complete and that we are happy and that is something that I didn't regret. :)
