If I Had My Life to Live Over

If I had my life to live over, I’d dare to make more mistakes next time.

I’d relax, I’d limber up.

I would be sillier than I’ve been this trip.

I would take fewer things seriously, take more chances, take more trips.

I’d climb more mountains, and swim more rivers.

I would eat more ice cream and less beans.

I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I’d have fewer imaginary ones. You see, I’m one of those people who lived seriously, sanely, hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I’ve had my moments, and if I had it to do over again, I’d have more of them.

I’ve been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot-water bottle, a raincoat, and a parachute.

If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than this trip.

If I had my life to live over, I would start going barefoot earlier in the spring, and stay that way later in the fall.

I would go to more dances, I would ride more merry-go-rounds.

I would pick more daisies.

    I love this……AND….some of this reminds me of ME!!! When I am not creating crazy seriousness in my head and stressful tumors in my gut! Bah!! In search of silly, happier me. Yes. I think, I should think, each morning when I wake up….”Today is a new day!” Truly every new day is gift of a Life to Live Over. Just say Jesus and smile! Yes.

    I think I could take that as good advice, and I might just follow it if I had a second go-round.

    Excellent ideas! No need for a ‘second time’ – I’m starting NOW! 🙂

  6. I’d stop and smell the roses. I would stop worrying about things that 99.9% of the time never happen.
