Today has been a day of retrospection and reflection for me, and to be honest at the moment I'm not in the liveliest of moods. So during a chat with my friend Ginika this evening we began to reminisce and talk about quite a lot of things and it was then that I blurted out that I wish I could just turn 19 again. She asked why and I gave her my reasons. After hearing me out she told me she also wished she could turn a certain age as well and told me the things she would do differently if she could.
Like I've already said, I wish I could go back to 19.
Why? Because that's when things began to go awry. That's when I made my first BIG mistake, that's when so many ideas, thoughts and opinions were formed that defined the events of the years that followed.
What I'd do differently... Well among other things;
I would have taught myself that I didn't need certain things, and I didn't need to do certain things to get those things.
I would have taken my education a lot more seriously.
I would have grabbed the opportunity to learn the ropes of music production when it was offered to me instead of this thinking I still had so much time.
I would not have listened when they told me I'd lost too much weight and I needed to gain some back.
I would not have taken it all for granted.
I would have saved all that money, or invested it. Unfortunately I'd thought the well would never run dry...
So hey, it may not make much difference though in a little way it might, but if you could choose an age from your past what would it be, why, and what would you do differently?
