Question from magspiritwing [Jul. 17th, 2004|07:21 pm]
[Current Mood |contemplativecontemplative]

If you could do just one thing in your life differently what would it be and why?

I would choose better lottery numbers!

Seriously, though. This is a tough question. Though there are things I would like to do differently, there is always the fear that any change would cause a cascade effect and in the end I wouldn't be the person that I want to be after all.

BUT, if I could change one thing and not have it change who my friends and children and spouse ended up being, I would make my young self as focus and directed as I am now. Then I would have made gone to law school directly after college, rather than waiting until this late in life, so that my career options would have been better.

that's so funny. I sometimes wish I was exactly the opposite, wondering how my life might have been different if I hadn't been so focused and serious when I was younger. I sometimes say that I was born an adult and only slowly learned how to become a kid after I was grown.

I think we all wish we could do it better.

I forgot to add you, by the way, after Ted pledged. You can now go back and find the locked posts - Oooooooo!

Oh, thanks, I know we didn't pledge that much so I didn't really want to ask, but I look forward to reading the posts!

There aren't many that are locked, but there will be at least a couple more.

Hey, I know you guys are doing what you can.

I was born old. That doesn't mean I'm not childish or childlike at times, but I was a very serious kid sometimes. Like, in a creepy way that startled adults. I need to learn to balance being an adult and being a child, when in reality, I don't know how to do either.

The cascade effect. That one always gets me. I like who I am now.
