Childhood Revisited

Sure, you turned out pretty good, but is there anything you wish had been different about your childhood? If you have kids, is there anything you wish were different for them?

I had an awesome childhood for the most part but I wish I could have had things turn out differently. Is that being selfish and ungrateful? Some may think so but the desire to better oneself is intensely a human aspect. I wish I had taken up martial arts and finish trainings on them so I could be fit and better equipped to defend myself or others in a crazy situation.

I wish I had exercised more as a young kid so that I had a healthier life growing up. I wish I take continued with my guitar lessons instead of quitting because I had a lousy teacher. I wish I had taken my license when I had my motorbike and stuck with driving lessons. I wish I instilled upon me the need to study hard at a time when I should have studied hard and that by doing so I could get a job in a country of my choice and I could go live the life that I wanted for myself.

I wish for many many things. I wish we could have moved abroad – not that India or where I live in India is bad but that’s not where I want to live. I wish I could achieve a whole lot more and make everyone proud of me. I haven’t done that yet.
