If you could do it over again…
I wanted to answer this prompt…but the harder I thought the more I wasn’t sure what I would do over again. I didn’t want to be cliche about it and I didn’t want to be predictable or superficial…I thought about making it funny, I google searched to see if anything else had been written on the topic, but in the end I decided to take the question to twitter. The answers I got were too good not to use:
jordyliz I’d stay true to myself and my OWN heart before compromising it for someone else.
wyndall93 I would have gone to Paris when I had the chance.
