    If I Had My Life Over I'd Pick More Daisies

    If I had my life over, I would dare to make more mistakes.

    I would relax.

    I would limber up.

    I would be sillier than I have been on this trip.

    I would take fewer things seriously.

    I would take more chances.

    I would go more places.

    I would climb more mountains, swim more rivers and watch more sunsets.

    I would eat more ice cream and fewer beans.

    I would have more real troubles and fewer imaginary ones.

    You see, I have been one of those people who live prudently and prophylactically, hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I've had my moments... and if I had to do it again I would have more of them; one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day.

    I have been one of those people who never go anywhere without aspirin, a thermometer, a gargle, a map, a raincoat and a parachute. If I had to do it over, I would travel lighter.

    I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.

    I would keep later hours.

    I would have more lovers.

    I would throw more parties.

    I would ride more merry-go-rounds.

    I’d pick more daisies.

    Holly, the only answer is to do it all right now!

    I expect your next posting to be from the top of a mountain, throwing a sunset party with one of your many lovers (ooeer!).

    I would reply but I no doubt I would have chosen the options of eating more icecream AND trying to swim a river and everyone knows you shouldn't swim straight after eating so I would probably be happily pushing up the daisies you were trying to pick.

        I've recently been offered a job back in IT, but in Sales (which I always wanted a go at but don't know if I can "hack")

        Reading this poem, I thought, hey, why not? If it don't work out, do something else....

        Thanks for that.
