Do-Over

How would you live your life differently if you had a chance? Here is our partial list:

  • Accept Jesus as savior at a much younger age.
  • Watch less television.
  • Laugh more.

The following poem, of uncertain attribution (sometimes Nadine Stair, an 85-year-old woman in Kentucky), is a good do-over jumping-off point.

If I Had My Life To Live Over Again

I’d dare to make more mistakes next time.
I’d relax, I would limber up.
I would be sillier than I have been this trip.
I would take fewer things seriously.
I would take more chances.

I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers.
I would eat more ice cream and less beans.
I would perhaps have more actual troubles,
But I’d have fewer imaginary ones.

You see, I’m one of those people who live
Sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day.

Oh, I’ve had my moments,
And if I had it to do over again,
I’d have more of them.
In fact, I’d try to have nothing else.
Just moments, one after another,
Instead of living so many years ahead of each day.

I’ve been one of those people who never goes anywhere
Without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, raincoat and a parachute.
If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than I have.

If I had my life to live over,
I would start barefoot earlier in the spring
And stay that way later in the fall.
I would go to more dances.
I would ride more merry-go-rounds.
I would pick more daisies.

Take a mulligan today.
