Advice to my younger self.

That is a dumb premise as we can’t go back, nor should we even if we had the desire and means to do so.

Much has been said about age 22 recently.  So I will too.

At age 22, I was a student at BYU in Provo, Utah.  And glad to be there.

My childhood dream of being in the US Marines had been set aside. I felt that I didn’t want to be in a war being shot at and shooting at other young guys who only wanted to be home, at school, or working as I did.

Had I know all the bad that has happened to me since then, I’d have made choices that would have prevented all the good that has happened.   And other good that could have happened, I’ll never know about so there’s no loss.

So my advise to all is to look to the future and live in the present.  No amount of regret will change the past.  I have regrets but can do nothing about “back then”.

I can only do now and plan to do in the future.
