What choices are you giving yourself?

When I was younger, I remember Daddy telling me to work hard 

not to achieve the best grades in the world

but to give myself more choices.

In secondary school, I didn't do so well, 

so I didn't have a lot of choice.

I went on to a polytechnic with a course I chose because I thought I had the genes of an engineer. 

Dad was an engineer. 

I did ok only because I felt it was too easy,

I skipped classes,

my grades dropped

and it was difficult to bring it back up again.

I went on to find a job related to what I did at school.

Because of the financial crisis at that time,

I jumped on the first job offer I received.

Then I spent the next 9 months asking myself if that was what I'd like to do for the rest of my life

and I eventually changed what I did. 

If I could turn back time, 

I wouldn't change a thing

I'd make the exact same choices I made back then.

But, I'd wish I'd worked a little harder

and gave myself a few more choices.
