I am happy, but if I could be guaranteed to have the same children a few years later I would wish back time a little bit.
I have never travelled or even been on an aero plane, me and DH have never been on a holiday together other than weekend breaks or camping weekends with the kids.
We don't own a house if I knew what I knew now back then I would have saved and saved!!
Other than that I have an amazing husband, 2 beautiful children, TTC number 3. I wouldn't swap any of that

I often look back at my life choices and think to myself, WHY DID YOU DO THAT!!
But then I think to myself,
If I hadn't of been married young and divorced by 21, I wouldn't know how absolutely perfect my marriage is now.
If I hadn't lived and worked hard when i was younger, i wouldn't appreciate the hard work my husband puts in to support our family.
If I wasn't in a very abusive relationship, I wouldn't know how respectful, loving, and decent my husband is not only to me, but our kids, my family and basically everyone else.
Every step of my life has lead to my life now, which I wouldn't change for the world.
I would never go back, as most of my choices that I made back then, I am ashamed or embarrassed about. But as I said, without them I wouldn't be where I am now.

Yes and no.
I should be a registered nurse by now, I attempted uni twice already and being young and dumb I dropped out. I I had of stuck with it I could of graduated twice already!!
But in saying that... If I hadn't of had my rebellious 20/21 year old phase where I dropped out, quit my job, worked at a night club etc I never would of met my DP and had our beautiful son, I never would of got the wake up call I really needed to get my life on track.
Sure I miss freedom sometimes, I have a mummy weekend every so often (this weekend, yay!) where I can relive my youth for a night I find little me breaks helps alot

Yeah, not really.
If I could go back and speak to fresh-out-highschool me, I'd not be telling her to do what I did. It's not that I'm UNhappy... but just that there is so much more I could have done, and I could be enjoying my life a whole lot more than I am.

I'm happy with my life. The only thing I would change is that I would have done education or nursing instead of my degree. But I am happy with the parts of my life that matter the most to me.

All in all yes I'm happy
I've got a wonderful partner after being married to an asshat for years. I have 2 truly wonderful children and we are currently trying to expand our family. I have a secure job with child friendly hours that pays the bills.
I do wish I'd finished year 12 and either done nursing or gone into the ambos.
