I'm interested in knowing if people could go back in time, knowling what they know now, and change anything they've done, would they do so? If yes, what would you change? If no, why not?

Yes, I would change my eating habits, the stress level in my life and one particular day where our lives were turned upside down. Very good thread.

I would definitely go back to do it all over again. I wouldn't change much but I would try to enjoy the good times more "smell the roses" instead of all the worrying and stressing I did.

I'd also cut short the amount of time I spent on relationships that didn't pan out and more time on my children and life long friends.

Thanks for sharing. It says you're in Saskatoon...A friend of mine brought me some saskatoon berry syrup after a visit to Canada. It was wonderful!

I can't think of anything in my life that I would change. I have my ups and downs, but I learn through all the good times and bad times. It's all worth it.

NO. Just watched the movie Premonition with Sandra Bullock. Things could be altered but might have an even disastrous effect. God spends a lot of time writing in his book about who will live, who will die, who will be rich, poor, and who will be a troll on Topix. Then we have Yom Kippur, where we spend the day atoning for our sins even though has already closed the book for another year. He wrote chapter and verse and it is written and done.Besides, dont want to OVER DO.

Would I change anything? good? Bad? No This the life that GOD gave me, As I have lived it I learned many important things that I have been able to pass on, There have been many hardships that I have cried to and many good times that I have laughed to also, To go back and change something in this timeline may have made things a lot worse or better! but then I would have not met all the wonderfull people in my life and done all the wonderfull things that I have done. You see it is not what we do in our lifes, It is how we live our lifes every day, I live every day like it maybe my last because it could be, when I go to sleep I might not wake up, or as I go out through the day something could happen to me, car could hit me, someone could shoot me,a heart attack. so I choose to live each day like it is my last one. I stop and smell the roses and I tell my wife I love her every day.

I agree with what you said. I wouldn't want to change the life God gave me either. Good, bad or indifferent. Everything happens for a reason.

My do-over would be the day before my Gramma died. I would tell her again and again thank you for everthing and how much I loved her.

I wouldn't go back. I wouldn't want to do it over. I think that life is hard and though I'm not the least bit suicidal, so don't take this the wrong way, but I often feel that it hasn't been good enough to have lived even once. And I've had it better probably than most people on this planet!

If you noticed, everyone in here is pollyanna types. It's a bunch of women "scrapbooking" their lives, saying that it was all worth it and they are happy. Life is HARD. If this isn't true for you, you are either wealthy beyond belief or have had a lot of easy breaks.
