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??

  1. Here, here! Studying abroad would have been lovely. And no, I haven't seen the movie Taken! I need to see this, and soon. You have a beautiful life :)

  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! :-)

  3. there's still time to live abroad! it's never too late! haha.. i hope we get stationed overseas at least once. and i would never admit it to my mama, but i kinda wish i'd stayed with piano a bit longer too!

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