If I had my life to live over again,
I'd try to make more mistakes next time.
I wouldn't be so perfect.
I would relax more.
I'd limber up.
I'd be sillier than I've been on this trip.
In fact, I know very few things that I would take so seriously.
I'd be crazier.
I'd be less hygienic.
I'd take more chances, I'd take more trips, I'd climb more mountains, I'd swim more rivers, I'd watch more sunsets, I'd go more places I've never been to.
I'd eat more ice cream and fewer beans.
If I had to do it all over again, I'd have more of these moments.
In fact, I'd try to have nothing but beautiful moments-moment by moment by moment.
