Oh, gee, where do I even begin.............?

I wouldn't change anything because if I did then I wouldn't be who I am today any more.

I am in full agreement.

We are the sum total of all of our previous experiences, good and bad. Change one tiny detail twenty years ago, and who knows where the new path could have taken you. I am happy with where I am, so no changes are desired.

Well, I was thinking more of things I may have done that I shouldn't have done. I know I am who I am because of all my life's experiences. But I maybe would have handled certain situations with my children differently, with my parents, etc.

If I had stayed in the Navy for 30 years, instead of getting out after 6 years, I would have gotten out in 2006 which means I would have never met three of my best friends, met them between 1983 and 1985, my 2 sisters would never have married 2 of my best friends (and later divorced them :o), I most likely would not have been at my father's bed side when he passed away, I would never have moved to Missouri, so many things that would have changed.

I wish I would have met ZG earlier in life, but then we might not have our cute daughter. Also, if I didn't mess my back up and was able to make my ship date for the Marines, but then I wouldn't have met ZG.:(. So, I'm very happy where I'm at right now.

I would have done everything just the same, but I would have savored it so much more.

This thread reminds me of the story of the Old monk and the young monk who were hoeing their garden. The young monk asked the older man, "If you knew that the world would end tomorrow, what would you do?" The old monk responded, "I would finish hoeing the garden."

I'd buy as much gold as I could afford at $100 an ounce.
