《Living life over》
If I had my life to live over…… I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would never have insisted the car windowsbe rolled up on a summer day
because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.
I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television - and more while watching life.
I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I were not there for the day.
I would never have bought anything just because it was practical，would not show soil or was guaranteed to last a life time.
There would have been more“I love yous”……more“I‘m sorrys”……butmostly，given another shots at life，I would seize every minute……look at it and really see it……live it……and never give it back.
我会说更多的“我爱你. ” … …更多的“对不起. ” … 但是最主要的是，如果我可以重新生活我会抓住每一分钟… …看看它, 实实在在地看它… …好好生活… …决不让它重头再来。
