Now that I'm, well, not as young as I once was, I find myself looking back on life every once in a while with an "I wish I had."
Now I'm not talking about major things--those I've done pretty good with. I like my values, I like my convictions, I think I've done (and am doing) a good job as a mom, and I've had the drive to become the writer I always wanted to be.
But there are a few things I wish I'd done or done differently.
3) I wish I'd lived on my own a little longer after college. I think wisdom about yourself mostly comes with age, but I think some of it, too, comes from being on your own. I had a little of that (as in five months before Hurricane Hugo reared its ugly head on my Mount Pleasant, SC apartment) but not enough.
So there you go. A few "I wish I had" moments that pop up now and again.
You ever have those?
