Reset Button for Our Lives

Lately I have been pondering a lot about what if I had a factory reset button for my life what time in the past would I reset myself. Would I reset it back to 2008 when I began working at the VA? Or, would I go back to some time in my childhood? Of course, I would want to keep some of my files in the new system. I'd like to know what mistakes to avoid and how to take better care of myself. I'd use more youthful creams to keep the wrinkles at bay and I'd exercise more and relax and smell the roses more. I would have held my kids' hands longer and watched them sleep more. I would have cherished my relationships more because so many of them have been lost along the way. I would have taken more time to make that one Veteran exceptionally special during their difficult times and I would have learned skills that now I find it's too late to really be able to enjoy. So as we say goodbye to 2020 and hello to 2021, what backup date would your reset to?
