30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 18

Day 18: Something You Regret

One thing I have always said I wish I had done was live abroad - either just on my own or as a student. There were great college programs to do a semester abroad & I really wish I had done that. I know it would have been such a rewarding experience and I would have gained a lot from the time. I hope that my kiddos have the opportunity and the desire to do it as well - though I know it would be so hard to be so far away from them. Every time I flew without my parents (even when I was grown & out of college) I could always see the worry on my mother's face. And now that I've had kids of my own (and b/c I saw the movie Taken - Ha ha) I can understand where she was coming from.

Have you seen Taken??? OMG!!!

Sometimes I also regret not continuing my piano lessons...but shhhh...don't tell my daddy that! He always told me that I would regret quitting - and I do!! Don't ya hate it when your parents are right about something?? :) And sometimes I really regret that haircut senior year! LOL!

Otherwise - I can't really say there is too much else in my life that I really regret - mainly b/c any other avenues I would have pursued probably would not have led to my life today with Michael, Emma & Aaron - and well, that's just not something to regret at all!!! Everything I've done in my **cough cough** 33 years has brought me to exactly where I am today and it is exactly where I'd like to be. Any other path just isn't an option!  True - sometimes I wonder what life would be like if I had done this or done that - but not enough to make me want to go back and change anything that led to right here!

What's something that you regret??

  2. Taken was so intense!! I used to study piano as a kid. NOt sure I regret stopping because I don't think it was for me but, I wish I had gotten more involved in sports! I love listening to my friends play piano though! :-)

  4. Taken was scary and we watched it right before we went to Paris! Somedays I wish I would have studied abroad as well.
