If I Had My Life to Live Over Again
Here is the advice that Nadine Stair, on her 85th birthday, wrote to others.
“If I had my life over again, I’d dare to make more mistakes the next time; I’d relax. I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I would take more chances. I would take more trips. I would climb more mountains. And swim more rivers. I would eat more ice-cream and fewer beans. I would perhaps have more actual troubles but less imaginary ones.”
“You see, I am one of those people who live sensibly and sanely, hour by hour, day after day. Oh, I had my moments, and if I had to do it 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 have been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat and a parachute. If I had to do it again, I’d travel lighter than I have.”
“If I had my life over again, I would start barefoot earlier in spring and stay that way later in the fall. I’d wade in more mud puddles. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.”
“If you really know what things you want out of life, it’s amazing how opportunities will come to enable you to carry them out.” – John M Goddard.
