    Love this! I got a chuckle out of the domesticated frog thing, especially as a romance writer. 🙂

    I agree with everything on the list. I especially wish I hadn’t worried so much about trying to fit in. In the long run, it just doesn’t matter.

    And amen on comfort being more important than style! Give me a nice pair of jeans or sweats any day of the week over high heels that pinch my toes.

    Umm… Let’s see… If I could add anything, I guess it would be to not sweat the small stuff. Things don’t have to be perfect. And, I would have taken more chances and asked out a couple of the boys I liked or did things I dreamed of but was too afraid to do, like going to the college I really wanted to. I’d also learn to embrace failure. Failure is just another way of learning to try something different next time. It’s not the end of the world.

      LOL…well, most of them are. We just learn to love them, flaws and all. 😀

      It’s amazing how our perspective changes once we’re out of school, isn’t it? I can, off the top of my head, remember the names of about ten girls I went to school with. The guys are a little different. For those, I can only recall five or six – and two of them, I had crushes on forever. I can remember more than those ones, but those were the ones that really counted – then. And now, I don’t care if I’m a member of the cool crowd or not. I prefer people like me … might not impress anyone, but we’re all real.

      LOL about the high heels. I remember the last pair I wore. They lasted about two hours and then I pitched them in the trash … and it’s been flats and sneakers ever since.

      Don’t sweat the small stuff. Perfect addition to the list! I look back and think about the things I used to worry and care about (like fold the towels THIS way, and WHY can’t anyone else put the silverware in the right slots in the tray?) make me laugh now.

      As for the asking a guy out – I did work up the courage to do that once. Unfortunately, he was engaged, I was mortified, and I never, ever did it again. 😀
