I would've finished my original plan of Art education.. I would've loved that.. I've HATED nursing for 28 years..
I could be here all day discussing do overs..
Nope, no "do overs." I have grown through my mistakes....So I will take what God gives me, and try to live in the now, and work for a good place in the Hereafter.
Actually, there was a guy I dated in college who was a good man and would have made a fine husband, had I known then what I know today. My regret is that he didn't see that I thought he was a good guy. My life would have taken a completely different turn, but I wouldn't have been strong enough for that "different turn" and moving halfway across the country after graduation. I tried to look the man up once, to no avail. I like to think of him as a preview of coming attractions.
As I read through these posts, I can relate to many of them. However, if there was one thing I could do over....it would be to live and understand the art of forgiveness. The forgiveness of others as well as myself. And, to accept the apologies with sincerety that were asked of me. My life would have had a different road. It is an art form that I work on each day.
Sounds like there are soooo many special things we still have time to "do" ! Every decision we made changed our lives in either a greater or lesser degree, but we have to remember not kick ourselves the rest of our lives for making some of them either. It was what it was! Yesterday's lessons and memories have definitely affected my energy going forward.
There is no point in looking back, but I definitely married the wrong person.
Same here! I would've listened to my gut and my parents and said "no"!
On a totally opposite note, I would have been stronger and gone to do some missionary work like I wanted.
