I have been musing with the idea of writing a blog post about what I would say to my younger self for a while. It’s a scenario regularly visited by soaps and sitcoms when they run out of ideas but it poses an important notion; if you could change anything in your past what would it be? I was going to include a photo of me at 15 but hell no one needs to be put through that torture.
“In 20 years, you will be more disappointed by what you didn’t do than by what you did” – Mark Twain
There are a few things I would tell my young self but one that has always plagued me was what would I do if I could change one decision I made in my past. One yes turned into a no, one left turned into a right. Mine would probably be to carry on acting; it is one thing I miss in my life now and I always wonder how far it could have gone. It would have more than likely turned into nothing but regret is a beast that eats away at undiscovered choices.
I would probably also tell my younger self to say no to eating that Chicken in Jaipur – that did not end well.
So my question to you is what choice would you go back and change? What would you tell your 15 year old self?
