If I had to live my over I would like to make more mistakes next time.
I would relax and I would limber up, and I would be sillier than I have this time.
I would take more chances, and climb more mountains, and I would swim more rivers.
I'd eat more ice-cream and less beans.
I would perhaps have more actual troubles, but I certainly would have fewer imaginary ones.
You see, I am one of those people who has lived sensibly and sanely hour after hour, and day after day. Oh, I've had my moments. And if I could do it again, I would have more of them.
Just moments, one after the other. Instead of trying to be so many years ahead of each day.
I've been one of those people who've never gone anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a parachute and a raincoat.
If I had to do it again I would travel lighter than I have this time.
And if I had to live my life over I would stand barefoot earlier in the Spring, and I would stay that way in the Fall.
I would go to more dances, I would ride more merry-go-rounds, and I'd pick more daisies.
