If you could go back and change a decision you made in the past, would you? This is a discussion I had with some of my coworkers a few days ago. One woman said she'd love to be eighteen and have her whole life ahead of her. She said she'd do thing a lot differently. Another woman just wished she finished her education. There's only one relatively big decision in my past that I question from time to time. I was offered a softball scholarship to a pretty big college out west and I turned it down. At the time, I didn't want to go that far away from home. Looking back on it, I ask myself why. Why didn't I at least take the chance? Why not try it out and see if I like it? But I didn't do any of those things...I simply said no. And while I could sit around and ask myself "what if" and wish I opened the door for opportunity when it knocked, I really don't. I only bring it up from time to time as something I could have done. However, if I had taken that path, my life would be totally different now and I know that. I met my husband during my freshman year in college...obviously that wouldn't have happened if I was 3000 miles away. We got marred when I was twenty-one...again that would never have happened. So if I never met my husband and we never got married, I wouldn't have the two great kids that I have. Maybe if I didn't have children, I would have more regrets about the path not taken, but as it stands I'm pretty happy with my life. I have great parents, a wonderful husband, and two kids I adore. Sure I'd love to win the lottery, but other than that, things are good.
