I am happy.
I didn't have my first child until 31, and had plenty of carefree days.
I lived and worked overseas for 4 years, travelled to many parts of the world.
I went straight from school to uni and have been working in my chosen career for 14 years.
I would not change anything.

I wish I would have appreciated what I had back then...even things like sleeping in, pleasing myself, deciding Friday night that we are going camping, dropping everything and doing something else because I felt like it...just that sort of stuff.
Now I am so throughly bone tired it makes me want to cry. I love my children so very much but sometimes just wish I had some time for me.
I just dont think I appreciated what I had and sometimes I wish I had of gone to Uni instead straight to work after year 11. I know I should have saved money instead of partying it away.
So to answer your question...yes I am happy about my life choices as I finally have my own home, a beautiful DP and 3 gorgeous kids but sometimes what happens in the present, the day to day stuff makes me sad.
Sometimes hindsight is a wonderful thing but sometimes it sucks hairy b@lls!

I'm as happy as I can be with the life I have.
I know I can be heaps happier though and I'd chance ALOT if I had the chance.

Yes I'm very happy. I have always been a very happy and positive person in general, but in the last couple of years it feels like everything has come together perfectly. I have my beautiful DD and finally found a career I love too.

Yep, overall I'm happy. The one & only thing I'd change is I would love to go back & save some money instead of partying away my 6 figure salary. I'm much happier now that I don't work in recruitment anymore, but we definitely could use some of the money I foolishly wasted!!

Yes pretty much I'd love to be buying our own home but that will happen soon enough

After reading this question and having a think about it I say yes, I am very happy.
I wish I tried harder in high school. I wish I didn't dabble in some kinds of illegal substances for fun back in the day. I wish I had the sense to save some of my money earlier on.
I'm so grateful to have my DH in my life. I love him and our precious girls. I love my family and his family too. I love our house and where we live. I am happy with our friends. I'm glad I got to travel the world with DH before the girls came along. We went out and partied, I worked some great jobs before having kids. Now we go on family holidays which aren't as fancy as the ones pre-kids but they're just as fun. I love getting to see life from a child's eyes now, Christmas/Easter/Birthdays are so much more exciting
Sure, life gets hard at home full time with a toddler and a 4mo and sometimes I feel a bit stuck in the daily grind but at the end of the day this is where I want to be.
This is my lot and I'm very happy and satisfied with that

Yes, I'm happy. I'm glad I had DS when I did - I feel I got to have some fun and grow up a bit before he came along but I wouldn't have wanted to delay any longer. I feel like I'm in a good place professionally so I'm glad I went to uni straight after school, and then straight into my job after uni, although there were times when I wished I'd had a year off. But if I had, I wouldn't have met my DH or have my DS.
Sometimes I feel like I've been a bit boring in my choices, but I really like my life so I wouldn't change anything.

I really am. I hate making decisions but when I look back on all my major life decisions I am beyond happy with the outcomes and the paths they have led me down.
It's hard to say that without it seeming smug or naive or both. But there's not one life choice I'd change if I had a time machine. Or if there is I can't think of it now
