Looking Back, Letting Go of Regret
by @jayna

What happens in my pretend version is similar to reality, because in the pretend version I see my sisters and my brother playing across the street and I want to go play too, but in this version as I begin to go down the steps (I was only 2, and cannot have been fast), my mother notices. She stops me. “No, Jayna! I know you want to go play with them, but you’re too little.” Not only does she say goodbye to her friend on the phone, but she also sets down her cigarette. And then she locks the screen door up high, out of my reach. I never get hit by that truck. And I don’t spend my life wondering if the driver is okay. Because in the real version, he was crying and hating himself and he believed he had killed a child.

Starting Over by @free-reign

The first thing that I would change about my life, were I able, would be my dad’s attitude toward me, which, if I am to be realistic, would require that I had a different dad. It would have to be a different dad, because the one I had was a real asshole in some regards, and that was just who he was. There was no changing him.

You Think You've Got Problems by @justclickindiva

After 36 hours of hard, intense labor, the nurse finally handed me to my mom. She looked at me and certainly had her doubts. So I left the hospital without a name on my hospital identification wristband. And for two weeks after that, I was still Baby Girl. As I've said before, my loving aunt stepped in and gave me a name. I guess it sounded sufficient enough for my mom.

Honorable Mentions (0.5 HIVE)

If I born again... by @mllg

Photo by @mllg

On more than one occasion I have heard some people say Ay! If I were born again ... Usually referring to decisions that they consider were poorly taken for their personal development. I have also heard many say, I do not regret absolutely anything I have done in my life, I acted in accordance with my circumstances.

I am not going to stop to consider one or the other position before life, but I am going to try to be creative with this exercise that @ zord189 poses for us, to redesign ourselves, to draw my other self if I were born again and if I could intervene in the conditions and characteristics of my genetic makeup and my birth as if I designed myself from conception.

From the waiting line by @zeleiracordero

Heaven by giovannid in Pixabay

I report from the waiting line to download the information contained in the life I just left to restart. I will take the opportunity to be here "consciously" to download information that I don't know if I will forget later.

Here, we associate by the first letter of the name we used in the last life. I'm waiting because my name begins with Z. I like the names by A and Z, beginning and end. My beehive knows this and it pleases me.

A second chance to do things with love. by @carolinacardoza

Photo by @carolinacardoza

Today I heard some news that makes me a little nervous, I'll be born again! Wow! A thousand questions immediately come to mind, why me? Where will I go? Who will be my parents? I don't know how to calm my anguish; from heaven I wouldn't want to leave, here we have a great time, we are always doing something beautiful together with the angels and cherubs.

But God is giving me this second chance and maybe I should take advantage of it. In my past life I made several mistakes against my body and I also wasted a lot of time on nonsense instead of dedicating more time to my mother and my brothers. But they say that it is never too late when happiness comes, so I will start preparing my trip and I know that I will come back here one day, I just have to keep my faith alive and it will bring me back to my father in heaven.

Looking through the glass by @antoniarhuiz

I look through the glass, I start my imaginary flight towards a new life, where I demand less and accept my best effort. In this "I" I think before acting and I control a little more the impulsiveness. I'm detached from the suit of attachments and fears that prevent me from making better decisions and I let go of what has to go. I listen to my inner voice more. In this new opportunity of life, I study more and learn other things that serve me for the future. I'm a girl who shares more with friends, traveling and dancing. It's free, without ties that limit experiencing meaningful situations that will become valuable experiences.

Born Again- Would I Change It? by @goldendawne

I was just starting my junior year of high school and had a HUGE disagreement with my best friend (we'll call him Brian for the sake of this story). In an emotional state, I attended a Friday night football game and met up with an older guy (he had already graduated from my high school and was an acquaintance of another female friend of mine). I wasn't looking to hurt Brian by any means, but he had said some hurtful words to me earlier that week; so making him hurt as much as myself seemed like what needed to be done.
