Advice to Your Younger Self: What Would You Say?

I read a post Advice to Your Younger Self: What Would You Say? it says.

“If you could go back and give your younger self some life-changing advice, what age would you pick and what would you say? Would you change careers, college majors, or perhaps even significant others? Do you tell yourself to work harder or to stop and smell the roses?If you could go back and give your younger self some life-changing advice, what age would you pick and what would you say?

Makes one stop and think for awhile about his or her life.   

If you could give your younger self advice what would you say?

I would go back to the end of 1991 to the beginning of 1992 while I was in the Navy serving in Misawa Japan.  That is the time frame I had to choose whether to re-up, change jobs, or get out of the Navy.  I would tell myself to apply for the other job rating and if accepted re-up for four more years.  I enjoyed my time serving our country just did not enjoy flying in P-3. 

Sure I could have said that I would go back and not get married or have kids but you know what.  I love my wife and kids and would not change that all.  Heck I could be in jail if it were not for them.

Give it some serious thought.
