What would you do differently if given the opportunity ?

I have had to deal with my own bad decisions, choices and have had to accept that I can't change certain things. What is one piece of advice you could give other women from you own experience.

  • Look before you leap. Think before you act on life changing things. Like having unprotected sex, owe I'm pregnant and I did not want kids right now, owe I have a STD that I can not get rid of. The list can go on and on. Do not think with only your heart, Think with your head too. " He beats me and has affairs, but I LOVE him".

  • I am so damned blessed....... at this moment in my life the ONLY thing i would change is that day a year and one month ago when i said I would be brownie leader,..... other than that I have no real regrets.

  • @sahlady - it's too bad you are not enjoying your time as a leader, I don't know if it would help you, but I have a lot of ideas on my site for new leaders -

    My main regret is moving into a house that nearly broke us - I would have been much happier sticking closer to home in the first place but the banker kept telling us that we needed to decide in order to get the "special" financing for lower payments that wasn't even available when we bought the house - in fact it hadn't been for several months.  Now we know to do more research and NOT listen to anyone through a mortgage company or bank.
