I would have studied harder at school and gone to uni, travelled more, married later and not put so much into friendships that gave nothing back.

I really wish I could go back to when I was around 14 or 15 and was offered a apprenticeship in a machining workshop (as it turns out I have a talent for TIG welding). I often wonder if I had taken that up would my life have taken a different direction. One that left me with more respect for myself.
And the smokes. Although I've been smoke free for around 3 years now and truly believe at this stage I'm kicking that regrets as$!

I would have cherished my time with DH pre-children more. We've always been close but the level of closeness we have now is amazing, I wish I slowed down and just enjoyed my life with more. Children really did bring us a lot closer but I just wish we could have enjoyed this closeness before.

I wish I picked the tall sexy rich german engineer (plus trust fund baby) over my ex husband. I would be in germany now living it up following my music career with lots of money and probably the sexiest man that has ever lived. My ex husband was my housemate and I was too scared to be homeless if I chose the other guy. I have 2 beautiful children from the relationship though.

I wish I travelled before kids, and to be honest I wish I made some reckless random mistakes but the way my brain is wired even at 13 I knew actions had consequences and if I did this that would happen.

I regret going to Uni to study Marketing. I've never enjoyed any of my jobs, it's a female dominated industry and sick of working with bishy competitive women.
I went to Uni as my parents paid for it, so I felt I couldn't say no, but what I really wanted to do was go to TAFE and study Interior design, but my parents (Dad really) was only going to financially (and emotionally) support going to Uni and I couldn't deal with the guilt he would have laid on me for not taking the opportunity to go to Uni (something no one in his family ever did - so who was I to turn down the opportunity!?)
I wonder how many wonderful Interior design projects I could have worked on in the last 10 years if Id done that, rather than wasting away doing marketing.
It's still my goal now, to go back and study it once the kids are at school, but with a 3 week old, that's still a little way off.

This is a really interesting topic.
My biggest regret is letting my lack of confidence and anxiety run my life. I feel like I've missed out on so, so much because I've not had the confidence to do things. I wish I'd let myself have a bit more fun when I was younger.
I also really regret letting a 'friend' talk me out of being in a relationship with my then boyfriend. I guess the upside is that he set me up with my DH and we have remained really great friends, but I wonder every now and then what would have happened if I did not let her get in my ear.

I would have studied something else at Uni. I went to Uni because I wanted a degree but at 18 I had no idea what I wanted to do with myself. It's much harder to study now and with little kids I'm limited with what I can commit to. I'm studying psychology (because I can do it by distance) but secretly I'd love to do something in the medical field. Sadly I think that ship has sailed...

I asked DP for his...and he has two that he can't decide between.
1. Would have put a higher offer on a place we were considering before we bought this house. Agree with him on that one...beautiful house, smaller, but we would have had a much smaller mortgage.
2. Would have had kids earlier (this one surprised me! He's 27 and we have a 2 year old). I would have been with him at the time...but that one would have seriously changed things. I would have been straight out of uni...interesting to think how things might be different.
