If I could live my life again,
in the next one I'd make more mistakes.
I wouldn't try to be so perfect. I'd relax more.
I'd be even more fool than I had been,
Actually, just a few things I'd take more seriously.
I'd be less hygienic.
I'd take more risks; I'd travel more,
I'd watch more sunsets,
I'd climb more mountains; I'd swim in more rivers.
I'd go to more places where I never had been,
I'd eat more ice cream and fewer beans
I'd have more real problems and less imaginary ones.

from INSTANTS by Jorge Luis Borges.
