Everything you said was important and true for many of us.  But for some reason your following statement is the one that resonated with me so deeply.  You siad:

 

"I would not rush things and let them take their course because although something seems good at the time, something better could be around the corner and you could miss it!"

 

How much have we "missed" because we were moving too fast--trying to get from point A to point B without enjoying the stuff of life in the middle?

THE SECOND TIME AROUND

Unfortunately, we are given one shot at this life.  But if you had it to do all over,  what would you do differently?  Different career, work, life-partner, relationship(s), location, etc.?  What would you change and why?
