Blog Challenge #2 LIITD

"If I was given a once in a lifetime chance to do one thing over, it would be..."

OH there are so so so many things I would change if only I could!!!
lol And I realise that would change who I am now, but I would still change them. There are so many things that, no matter that they formed who I am now, did NOT make me a better person (no matter who thinks things happen for a reason and make us who we were meant to be)

Id turn the other way instead of meeting some of the people I did. Many people did not add anything positive to my life.

I'd make different important decisions. And I would decide what I wanted rather than what would have been best for so many other people around me.

I wouldnt have let others decide where my life was going. And I would have learned earlier where I wanted to go.

But of course the one thing I most want to change if I could, is I would have spent more time with my father when I could have. Even after I knew he was sick, I didnt honestly thing he would die and I didnt always take advantage of every minute I could have, because I was fairly convinced that there would be lots more time. I could not have known how little time there really was, but If I could do it over again, I would live that time like there really was not more time. Hindsight is 20/20 of course, but why dont we take advantage of things when we can instead of always assuming there is going to be a tomorrow? Why Don't we live more like today is all we have and if we have a chance, get everything out of it we wanted to? I have too much to say left over. I have too much to ask. And I have too many hugs not given.

This is the thing I would choose to change, if I could only choose 1 thing.

Thankfully, I knew my dad's days were numbered and I took every moment I could. If not, that too would of been what I changed also. I wish it never happened for sure. Thanks for sharing:)
