Thursday's Question



We are only given one life. One chance to get it right! Right?
But what if you were given an opportunity to start all over!
This week's question:
If you were given the opportunity to be born again, how would you change how you lived?







If you were given the opportunity to be born again, how would you change how you lived?

  1. Wow so very interesting question! Of course I would have taken better care of my body, would have done a few things different in raising the kids, and probably would have pursued a college education. I'll have to come back and read what others wrote.

  2. I had a great life but it wasn't always easy. I'd probably do it over just as I did the first time.

  3. I would have waited about 5 more years before getting married and would have lived on my own for a while. I would have gone to college earlier and found a career that I loved! I would have stressed that to my kids better too! Oh well. Every decision I made seemed to be the right one at the time! I'm still with my husband after almost 40 years and both of my kids have happy lives. I'm just a few years from retiring from the drudgery of my job so I guess it all turned out ok!

    1. Oh my gosh yes!! I would have waited to get married too. I was only 18. And dumber than dumb, but thought I knew everything. I wish I had lived alone too!

  4. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! I make jokes about my wrinkles, but it's truly unsettling to look as if I fell asleep on the waffle iron.

    Oh, and I'd try to appreciate everything and everyone instead of constantly looking forward to the next 'high.'

    1. That's a good one. Luckily I have good genes and don't have many wrinkles. But my family tends towards obesity and that, too, is good for keeping the wrinkles away.

  5. I would have married someone who wanted to live in my Ohio area - instead of moving away. I would have had children, or adopted some. I would have gone to college...

    1. I've often wondered if people who didn't have kids have ever regretted it! I have often said that if I could do it over I wouldn't have kids! This is a world that is crazy to raise kids in!

  6. No. I would not want to go through my childhood again. You don't say if I could be different this time out. That would be the only way I'd consider it.

    1. I wouldn't want to do my childhood over again either. In fact, I don't want to go back any further than age 40!

  7. This is one of those things that you can get lost thinking about but here is my bottom line....I wouldn't change anything because to change one thing may be to change everything and there is so much wonderful, amazing things and people in my life that I would never, ever change.

  9. I wouldn't change anything. If I did, I might not be where I am today. Happy, healthy, wealthy. All the hardships finally paid off.

    1. Well I can say that I am happy and healthy. And I'm wealthy in ways far better than money. I would still like to be wealthy with money. Life would be so much easier!!

  10. These types of questions always baffle me. If I, *I*, MYself, were born again, I'd change nothing. I'd still need to make the same mistakes in order to be the person that I am today.

    I can imagine some things that would be different - maybe better - if I'd learned a life lesson earlier in life, but how? What, specifically would I have to do to make that happen? Perhaps I'm too logical to be that imaginative.

    (If I had been less angry as a teen, perhaps I would have been happier staying in "my lot in life" and not peremptorily moved to the coast. The less anger as a teen would have been a blessing, but I LOVE the life I had at the shore... It's all a trade-off.)

    1. That is all so true. But it is fun to sometimes think about what we would do differently. There is so much I would do differently if I could!

I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
