to never live in the past...ie: I should have done this or that, I just consider it experience and moved on...

life is to short to be worried about what happened x years ago

Wow that's a hard question. I'm supprised that so many men here picked either marrying or divorcing their spouse. My best decision so far was moving from NJ in 1998 to Palmetto Florida just north of Bradenton on the West Coast. I took a company bonus and bought my first house on the water. Flipped it 2 years ago to the home of my dreams. I'm on the water, the house is huge and I catch snook whenever I want .

I would have to say the best decision for me was made by my wife (of 32 yrs) ,family and best friend , on my behalf.
The 3 of them got together and through there coniving ,persistence, and nurtchering helped the Dr's diagonose my problem and get me the medical help I needed to be here today. It was a long battle and all stood right by me now I have a second lease on life. (Where was House when I needed him....) I now say laughter is the best medicine ... gitting better has a lot to do with a good attatude .

Good to have you still around, Sammy Joe!

I think my best decision in life has been growing to appreciate the joy of it all. The mistakes, the shortcomings, the joys, truimphs, the past & the present. Realizing that no matter what happens or what we think might happen, you have to live in the present with all of the happiness you can muster. Everything changes & as long as you keep your bearings and your course, always remain faithful, diligent & honorable to others & to your country, believe in the humility of prayer & smile & hold the line when others believe it is a loss cause or you lost your mind (!!!), you will be just fine.

Best wishes to everyone.
Andy

To accept Christ as my personal savior when I was 11 and keeping that faith through all the years of my life - NO MATTER WHAT~!

That one decision has brought me through incredible times - both good and bad. Whew~!

1) Accepting Christ as my savior

2) Getting rid of my ex and raising my boys in a stable environment which led me to my present wife, who by the way, got me into boating.

Man, I almost forgot!

Yeah, splitting with the ex was a biggie...

BUT, maybe even topping that, was quitting smoking (3-pack-a-day habit, too), on my own, cold turkey, on October 11, 1976 at 10:30 A.M. (not that I remember any of the details, mind you).

Yeah, that was right up ther with the best of 'em.

Best personal decision - quit my job as a mudlogger to finish my MS degree. Had taken all the classes and just needed to write thesis.

Best decision for the house - bought one of those high-efficiency woodstoves.

Best decision for the boat - repowered with a four-stroke Suzuki.

Spending 4 years in the US Navy during the Korean war, doing two “round the world” trips on a Destroyer.

Spending most of my life (retired now) in business for myself, doing exactly what I wanted to do, loving every minute of it.

Marrying my 4th wife (36 years now). She is my fishing buddy.

One of the most wonderful things was moving to Tennessee from California almost three years ago.
