My mistake was,, when I was on my kness praying and crying to my God,, that he please let my wife live to seen ours sons first birthday, God answered my prayes, she died,when our son was 13 mo.. I would have asked for a life time if I only knew... However,, I do that God for answering my prayer....... That was over 6 years ago,, there isn't a day that goes bye,, that I am not blessed...just for the life we shared and the life that I now have with my son..


A note,, a friend of mine said to me,, Norm,, have you ever considered why your prayers were answer, she said,, you asked for very little, just for a moment in time,, and nothing for you..she was right..

If i could fix one mistake..well i would like to fix two but...no just the one because the other one i would be gambeling with my life..

In my last year of High school i got with a girl called Joanne we had dated in the irst year of high school but it lasted a week if that. Anyway we got (back) together we had grown close through the school years and hung out alot during lesson Science lessons and also lunch times when a gang of us would go on to the field and play football...well the lads would and the girls would talk away. Joanne asked me out during a lesson and it was the most happiest ive ever been..(ok thats a lie Liverpool wining the Champions League 05) but i was really happy at the time in a period of my life in which i had seen my mum battle with alcohol and the demons that bought with it,

Anyway me and Joanne were together for 5 months maybe less? but we had got together when High School ended and most people ere staying on for 6th form or going to college..i did to but not the one Joanne was going to(however i ended up at the college Joanne went to 2 years later). Joanne begged me to turn down my offer for the college i accepted and be with her but i didnt listen and she decided one day she wanted to meet in town and thats when she ended the relationship and broke my heart for the first time...if only i had listened to her...anyhow i would fix that certian point in my life

just one?...........well,...that would have to be out look on life, when i was younger.......i didn't understand why i was taken/adopted by a ministers family......and this for a better life???....ppffttttt fuking try it!!!!............


for what it's worth, timber wolf...us moms who give up our children for adoption do think that it is the best at the time. While i do not know your specific circumstances, i do know that i gave a child up for adoption 8 months ago. Fell in love with the right family, who i believed would give him a great life.
imagine how people will "snow you" to get a child...they have turned out so unlike I ever expected. At the end of the day, we do what we think is best because we are naive as to how we are getting "played" by the adoptive parents. I could sue them for fraud, but the truth is that i still want a *better* life for him (with 2 parents), and the baby is doing fine with them (they all live a stone's throw away)despite my personal feelings towards them. just something to ponder when you lament the loss of your real family.

Regrets, I've had a few. But then again, to few to mention.

Mistakes, Ive had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption...~Frank Sinatra~

(ok so I changed a word)

umm..I have made one mistake I would change...all the rest of them, well..If I hadnt made them, then I wouldnt have learned from them. I am sure with time..I will be content with that one mistake I would change and not want to change it anymore.

The things I have learned is how I am who I am today and I am happy with that. We grow within ourselves from our mistakes...there should never be any regrets.

Now this is a really interesting one ... on the one hand I followed a path in 2003 that means in 8 weeks time when I've saved up the fee I'll be declaring myself bankrupt ... on the other hand following that path has lead to some real personal development culminating in me becoming the sort of person a certain lady seems to really like and I think I may have found "the one"
So would I change things .... I will make all that money back and more anyway but if she turns out to be the soul mate I think she is I wouldn't change a thing

The one character flaw that I would have changed: I would have gone with my younger brother to Tae-Kwon-Do when he started going, and learned to physically defend myself and so get over my issues with bullying, when I was still quite young.

The one relationship that I would have changed: I would have asked out my first love when I met her. I knew we were both heavily attracted to each other, but I didn't give her a chance. It was a real shame, because eventually she went off me, and although we were friends, I fell in love with her anyway, because of who she was as a person. But while we were around each other, we were almost inseparable, and it was one of best 8 months of my life.

I should have run away and joined the Circus at a young age.
I was raised in the Bible Belt and that influence has had an adverse effect on me all my life.

I wouldn't change anything without knowing which ones would not have affected where I am now.


Every experience, good, bad, neutral, traumatic, or benign, has blazed the trail to the place where I am and besides being finished with this current effort, I am happy with who I am, what I am doing, and where I plan to go in the future. Without all of these experiences, I would not be the person that I am and I would not be at this place in life.

I'm quite happy. I certainly wish that it had come together earlier in life and yet, what I wish was probably not good for me.

I like me, I like who I am and who I am is the result of where I have been. What I have refused to do rather than wish I could fix in the past, is to recognize that I have not ever allowed my unchangeable past to dictate my changeable future.

I would ask this one girl in high-school out. It probably wouldn't have worked, but at least I would have tried.

An older woman I used to know said that if she had life to do all over again that at age 17 she would have all her teeth pulled out and had a hysterectomy because those two things were the source of all her trouble in life.
