    What would the child you once were think of the adult you have become?

    He'd be pretty surprised I did most of things I promised myself I wouldn't and would hopefully say something to the effect of "Man, I wanna grow to be just like him!" icon_biggrin.gif Little 714 was even more naive then big 714, lol, so I think this it is to be expected that I overcame youthful notions. He might be afraid fo the sky-diving, marathons, Ironman and other extreme activities that I know find fun that he has to go through, lol.

    I never had dreams or aspirations as a kid, I was too busy trying to cope with the nuttiness of life. If I could create a parallel 10 year old me right now, this is what he would likely think.

    - the old me is happier and more successful than I thought possible, maybe life isn't so bad after all;

    - he actually likes playing sports now? Well that is a change;

    - he isn't bad looking and people actually give him compliments on his physical attributes;

    - what happened to all the body fat?

    - he is with a partner? he is male? is that possible? do such people exist?

    That is a start, I might think of other things later.
