If I only knew then what I know now, is the mantra of the ages. I remember people saying this ever since I was a young boy. When you are young this has no meaning. As you grow older you begin to understand.
Our experiences over time are what make us who we are. We cant alter the past, but we can alter the future. If you are not happy with who you are today, then change who you will be tomorrow. The problem with always looking back, is you cant see where you are going.
I am 48 my life has not been perfect, but it is my life. It is a life I have enjoyed very much.
A Diamond is just a piece of coal, that made good under pressure!

Yeah I kinda of look at it that way too. I have been raising kids since I was 25 years old. For 35 years. My last one is still living here with us while he finishes college.(23yo)
If I was young again I would probably still make the same stupid mistakes. My kids make the same stupid mistakes as I did so it only stands to reason.
Everyone said that it is the most advantageous to take SS at age 62. So that is my target date in 2 more years.
