What’s your biggest regret? How would your life have been different if you’d made another decision? Photographers, artists, poets: show us TURNING POINT.

My biggest regret was always not going to College right out of High School.  I always had the “smarts”; I just never had the confidence, the ambition or the assertiveness.

booksFor years I wondered “what could have been”.  Of course, as most of you already know, I’ve taken steps to fix my error in judgment.  I became a College student 3 years ago.  While I am proud that I finally got around to it, I at times wonder whether I left it for too long and too late.  I suppose time will tell on that score.

dreamsWhat if I had gone on to school and found something that fascinated me for a career option?  I never had “big” dreams.  I dreamed of things that were obtainable and settled for being a secretary.  I sold myself short.  I wish now that someone had directed me or suggested other options to me. What could I have been?   There were many different jobs and careers that I could have done, but no one encouraged me, and I never thought to ask for more.

That remains my biggest regret – I didn’t push myself harder and I didn’t ask for more.

I don’t know how my life would have turned out if I had made another decision. It’s possible I might have had more of a career than a job, but I also might not have been as happy as I am in my personal life.  I do know that things happen the way they do for a reason, and I believe that the way things worked out is the way they were meant to be. Who knows?  Maybe I am just a late bloomer.
