i try not to have any regrets (almost ironically got, 'no looking back, no regrets' tatted on my back...Geek)

but at the same time.. most ppl cant grow without realizing they've made mistakes.. 

ive made a lot... my rationale is backwards at times.. and.. yall probably didnt know this... but i tend to overreact

Career choice- No, being a salon owner is not as fun or glamorous as I thought it would be. Taxes are always brutal, stylists are not the easiest to manage, constantly changing trends I have to learn, lets not talk about how the state is ALWAYS pestering about some new law and fines. I would have rather done Law.

Marriage- Yes, nicca is a hard worker, says "excuse me" when he farts, and makes pretty babies Stern Smile .

Family- Yes, but I would have had her younger! 30 was too old and I worry about how much time we will have with her and I am "tired" already. Many don't agree, but I envy those who had their child young.

Friends- My core friends get an absolute YES!

feel like all my friends, good or bad, taught me something so there's that. Even if they weren't the best friend I learned what kind of person I don't want to hang around in the future.


Man...this is so true. The older you get the more you see it.
Good for you. And good for you for going in with your eyes open. Nothing worse than getting 20+ years down the road and wondering "what if?"

As far as career/family/life in general, NO. I wished I would have taken advantage of opportunities, instead of thinking I know everything, but that was 20s.

Lol! Gurl, then keep that nicca!
Mine thinks farts are funny.
I told him a pillow over his face some dark, stormy night is a funny idea too!!

There's another thread asking about degrees, which made me think: If you knew 'then' what you know 'now,' would you do it all over again?

Career choice- YES . I love my career as a Nurse . Ready to retire .
Marriage- Yes. I am so thankful i found the right man ,
Family- Definite Yes
Friends- I love my friends like family . 
Good topic . Embarrassed


You got me beat. As a teenager I volunteered at a hospital and knew it wasn't for me. But thank the Lord for the people like you :)
Glad it worked out well for ya India.

Career choice- No, I would change.   I would do something in the culinary arts. Something more creative than tax accting.
Marriage- Yes and No.  I guess it depends on the day.
Family- Still deciding.
Friends- Yes and no regrets.  Had to let some go and lost a couple of them along the way.
