In Quantium Leap a television show here in the US, Dr. David Becker could jump into other people's lives to correct one thing in their past life...if you could jump back anywhere in your life, is there anything you would change or would you leave it alone and stay with what you are today?

Wasn't it Dr Sam Beckett?

Anyway, I wouldn't go back and change anything in my own life right now, I'm not the most content of people but it suits me fine.

I have made some stupid choices in the past and done some things that I am not proud of but I would not change a thing if I could. The dumb things as well as the good are what put me where I am today and I am satisfied with that. Chenging the past would put me somewhere else and that might not be nearly as good as this. Be careful what you wish for, you might just get it.

I think I would go back and change my financial blunders maybe we wouldn't be living in a house with no water or heat.

I feel your lack of heat Ave

If I changed anything it would all have to due with financial blunders and then only if I knew it would not change my friendships as I value them much more dearly than money.

I have mentioned this before. In a book called "The Wine Of Violence" there was a plant substance that one could take that would transport them back in time to that place just before that step was taken that one wanted to change. The hitch was that this could only be done once and one had to live with the consequences of whatever happened when the future was changed, be it good or bad.

So the question really is: would one be willing to gamble that be changing history that the outcome would be better...or would it be worse somewhere down the line?

I remember a lyric to a Jack Tempchin song: "The one thing I know about the future is you just can't see it from here...."

Ave: I, too, have been in that situation. I lived in an old uninsulated farm house in west central Wisconsin for an entire winter in 1979. Heat I had, well, kind of: I had a small woodstove that was the only thing that kept me alive during months of cold weather---try 30 below zero! The well was frozen, no running water (I hauled water from town in 5 gallon containers: 4 at a time....and town was 15 miles away....that would last me maybe 2 weeks?

Picture this: I had the couch pulled up as close to the woodstove as I could without it catching on fire. I slept in a 7" loft North Face superlight down bag, wore a merino wool balaclava, wool mittens, down booties and longjohns and was still cold. My 100 lb. golden retriever, a veteran winter camper in Montana and an ocean swimmer, would whimper on the floor next to me because he was so cold and ended up sleeping on top of me....the cat on top of him. That's how we spent most of the days and nights for at least December, January and February.

A cup of tea brewed on the woodstove would be bubbling hot when I lifted it off the stove but would be luke warm by the time it got to the table....drank a lot of Sherpa tea (tea with melted butter in it) that winter.....trips to the outhouse were infrequent and more than miserable to say the least! Not to mention frozen engine blocks and all the other fun stuff one can imagine!

I hope you're doing better than that, Ave!

If I had to do it over again, I would have chosen a different career path. I spent most my life working in the medical field and wished now I had gone into makeup artistry instead. I have dabbled in it a bit and loved it! Oh well! No point in crying over spilled milk, eh?

For my own personal choice I would have to leave it the way it is, like most have said, could be better or could be a lot worse.

My life so far is summed up as this, a loving wife, wonderful children, three fantastic grandchildren and to go back and change, and possibly lose it all, NO WAY DUDE. smile.gif

If I could change one thing, it would be the time that I overslept several hours and was 2 hours late picking up my mother, father, great-aunt and grandmother at a train station north of London. They had flown all night from Texas, and were wacked from the jet-lag. My aunt and Gran were 82 at the time.

Did I mention that I went on a bender the night before, and my oversleeping was the result of too much ale?

Mom still holds it over my head when she really needs me to do her a favor.

Yea, That experience I would change.

If I could go back and try to change something in past. It would be not to get married at 19 and to have gone into college right out of high school instead of marrying. I wanted to be a Vetinarian. My friends and all other choices I made I wouldnt touch. Those made me the person I am today. They were learning experiance to make me have a strong survival instincts.

I sometimes wonder what would have been the result had I majored in architecture rather than aerospace engineering in college (I thought about it briefly at the time; would I have been happier in a field that allowed me some artistic satisfaction? I often think so). However, the person I was then could not have decided other than she did, so the question is moot; besides, I rather like who I am now and the path I'm taking now and I wouldn't be ME if I'd done otherwise then.

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

They say hind sight is 20/20! I have done somethings in my past that I'm not very happy about, but I honestly would not change anything. I would be too afraid that if I did I wouldn't be married to my husband and have 4 beautiful children.
