If you could have a chance to redo your life, what would you do?

There is a saying, "Regret always comes late."
Everyone has regret. Thus, many people always ask, "Why all of this happens? Why did I do this? Oh, if only I could have a second chance." These questions always come to us frequently.
Well, although this question doesn't make sense as we can't redo our life, I am just curious about your answers.

    • Apr 3 2013: I do agree that everything happens is an opportunity for us to learn and grow. All events - our mistakes, happy moments, and sad moments - happen in our life are our treasures to be cherished. They make us grow stronger day by day. Thus, nothing should be regretted. When we look back, they will become sweet memories.
