I tried to translate as best as I could.. This is from a Turkish movie which I really like.

If I could start to live again,
In the second chance, I would make more mistakes.
I wouldn't try to be perfect, I would lay down on my back.
I would be cheerful, more than I was in the first
I would do so little in a serious manner.
Cleaning would never be a problem for me.
I would risk more.
I would travel more.
I would watch more sunrises.
I would climb more mountains, I would swim more in the river.
I would go to many places I did not see.
I would eat ice cream to my heart's content and would eat less peas.
I would have real problems rather than imaginary ones.
If I could start again, I would only have happy moments.
I do not know if you are aware but,
This is life itself.
Moments, just moments.
You, too, should live the moment.
I was the one who wouldn't go anywhere,
Without ever having a thermometer, water, umbrella and parachute with me.
If I could start over, I would not carry anything.
If I could start again,
I would take off my shoes in the spring,
And with my bare feet I would walk till the end of autumn.
Discover the unknown ways, enjoy the sun, play with the children, I would, if I had a chance.
But here I am at the age of 85, and I know ...
I'm dying...

Thanks for this... Was agonizing on a decision tonight and this made it easier for me, in a good way. :)

It reminds me a bit of Gary Vaynerchuck "Go to a retirement home and look at the regrets these people have in their eyes".

I've never lost an opportunity since then, in business and in life.

Enjoy the ride

Live at you fullest, make sure you don’t have regrets when you will be old.

When I reach an advanced age, I want to turn back on my life and be satisfy with my journey.

Thank you for this quote.
