What would you do differently?
This questions implies that I have regrets. It urges me to think what I ‘should have’ done. I don’t believe in should-haves. There were times this year when I massively regretted coming back to Germany and taking up the job in PR. Massive regrets and should-haves. I should have stayed in Asia. I should have kept on working as a dive instructor. I should have never started experimenting. I’ve overcome those regrets now. I’m glad I made decisions that I made, as I have developed them into the future. This year has taught me a lot BECAUSE of the seemlingly wrong turns I took. Weirdly, today, I have come to realise that they weren’t so wrong after all, that I unknowingly made the right decisions. (How is that even impossible?) So, my answer: Nothing. I wouldn’t do anything differently. Did I enjoy every decision I made? No, not always. I even hated the situations they brought me in. But I have learned. And that’s what life is all about for me.
