What would I have done?

May 16, 2017
Chatting with my niece who has recently graduated from university and spending time working for my sister's business. She's evaluating her current choices and future options.

If I could turn back time. What would I have done differently?

Well, for one, I would have probably balanced studies and social life. I would have probably worked on developing strong friendships. Perhaps go into a relationship. It's not that I was so unlikeable in the past. I had my fair share of suitors but my world revolved around my own bubble that I didn't see anyone apart from myself and studies.

If I did that:
- I'll have close friends to talk to now and laugh about the past 👯‍♂️
- I'll probably have a different partner in life who would have respected and love me the way I deserved to be treated 👑

Another thing that I would change is the place of work. If I could turn back time I won't work in Manila. I'll stay in the province. Work on my own business. And grow there. 🤷‍♀️

If I did that, I would have been more successful. Or be successful. 

Not to mention that I would have been closer to my family. And that I won't lose the feeling of home. 🏠

I'm a visitor in Singapore. Even if I have lived her for so long. It could never be mine. I feel at home here but it's not home. I'm a visitor in our province. I'm no longer a local. I'm lost.

The only thing that makes me happy as a result of my life choices are my kids. Without them, life would have totally sucked. 

But then again, I can still have them even if I change my choices. If only I knew of IVF 25 years ago.

What if you could be anything, or anybody, you chose to be? Think about it. What would you choose to be?
