“sometimes I feel like, if I could start everything over, knowing what I know now, I’d do it all right this time. But other times, I think, no I wouldn’t.”

Such a good line.

It’s a Princess Carolyn line.  From Bojack Horseman.

What would I do differently? I’d talk less, smile more. Eat more fresh fruit, drink less– no. No, I wouldn’t. I’d do it all the same, more or less.

I’d probably have most of the same virtues and vices. Still waste lots of time. On people and things.

But maybe…. just maybe…

I could get rid of one thing. Well, a few “one things.”

I wish I didn’t give in to my temptation to be angry in front of someone, the very first time! That’s not who I am. I don’t do anger well.  If I don’t do it the first time, I can resist the second time, and the third.  I haven’t “broken the seal.”

I wish I could let things go easier.

But maybe I’d do it all the same, but worse.

I have a good life.  Who is to say I would have it if I altered my past?

Most of all, I know that I’ll have him.  He’ll protect me against anyone who might even try.

My life is happier when I am generous and help, and when I stop worrying about how to be better and simply be better.

Why is that lesson so difficult to learn!
