I posted this on pen.io today:
I told my daughter yesterday that I made a LOT of mistakes in my life. “I wonder…,” I said, “what would my life be like if I could go back and fix all those mistakes? To not do them?”
My daughter said, “Your life would probably be the same!” We laughed hard.
I’ll always think of her answer now when I think of my question. And I wonder if what she said is true.
