let's imagine we're 16 or 18 or 25 or 40 ...
what would you do differently if you had a re-do? different career choice? different worries/concerns? fewer worries/concerns? different relationship / lifestyle choices?
At 16 I would have considered becoming an emancipated minor. If I decided not to do that, I would have moved out of my home within 5 minutes of becoming 18.
I would have moved away from the NE, as I find it toxic to my general well being.
I would have taken up some type of vocation I found mentally and emotionally satisfying, and after getting some experience at it, open my own business.
I think at some point during that time I would have become an RN only because you can always get some work with that license. It would totally be a backup. I talking doing visits to make enough to get by while pursuing something else.
I don't know that I would have ever married. Not because of lack of love, but because if I had followed the above course, I think so many of my emotional needs would have been met.
Would have bought a home sooner, and paid it off as quickly as I could. It would have a guest house in the back to either use as my business, or to rent out to someone who needed it to run their business out of.
I would have understood work is not the meaning of life, and lived a simple happy life.
