Time Machine

If you could go back in time and do anything differently, would you?  Everyone always says, “I wouldn’t change a thing! Everything that happened in my past has made me who I am today!” I get that, but let’s just pretend for a second that nothing would ultimately be changed in the outcome of your life (unless you want it to change) and you can just go back in time and do or not do certain things.  What would you change?

I would change a few things…

First of all, I would definitely not date the same guy for three years in high school.  It wasn’t a good relationship and I know I missed out on fun social things in high school because of it. Did it allow me to have my eyes wide open and to know true love when I met Josh? Sure, but the three years up to then could have been way more fun!

Also, I probably would have learned to play the piano. I’ve always wanted to have that talent, but sadly, I am 100% musically challenged. It’s like when Joey tries to speak French on Friends…except with piano playing.

Now, if we’re getting totally crazy, and could really go back and change things, I would probably stand up for myself all the times I should have, and maybe I would have eaten a little healthier. Meh, there’s still time (as I’m seriously eating a piece of cake while typing, I’m not kidding you!).

People say turning thirty is awesome because by that time you know who you are. I get it. It’s like you instantly receive membership to the “I’m awesome and don’t care what others think!” club. If you’re not there yet, you’ve got a lot to look forward to. If you’re there already and you don’t agree, then it’s time to love yourself and know that you are awesome and it really doesn’t matter what others think.

With life changing every day, you’ve got to make sure you are making the most of it! Grab life by the horns, and all that. Honestly, while I was an elementary school teacher I always felt like I had to fit a mold. I felt like I could never put a purple streak in my hair, or have really visible tattoos. I felt like it wouldn’t be the best example for young children. Maybe that’s silly, but it’s how I felt. I’ve secretly always wanted to have lots of tattoos. Like all over my arms. Will it ever happen? Who knows. Probably not, but it gives me something to think about! And now, if I ever do, you’ll be able to say, “Wow, she finally did it!”

Leave me a comment and let me know what you’ve always wanted to do. Maybe now’s the time!

Who knows, maybe five years from now I won’t only be a stay at home mom, I’ll be a crazy tattooed, piano playing stay at home mom!
