    I would not go back in time to warn myself about anything.
    We learn more, and better, by making our own mistakes.

    And you never know what damage could be done if you did one thing differently in your life.

    There, but for the grace of God, go I.
    And I mean that in the sense that I believe God guides me, even in my 'seeming' mistakes.

    I have made mistakes as a trucker. I hit a pole, I got stuck in the mud, I took down a power line.
    All of those things slowed me down and changed what I would have been doing.
    Possibly it prevented me from being involved in a larger accident.
    And I learned things, first hand, that I otherwise would not have.

    We could take the example of someone deciding to get out of the military at a certain point in their life, as opposed to staying in.
    Later in life they might regret leaving the military for whatever reasons.
    But what if they stayed in the military and then a few years later, for whatever reason, they killed an innocent child on the battlefield?
    Which would be the greater regret?

    There's a guy here on my sandbar with a hot dog cart.

    He makes good money.

    Good hot dogs to.

    He's been doing it for years, and the only one that I know of here that does it. You see him everywhere. Outside the DMV, local baseball games, local events of all kinds, etc. Nice guy to.
