hey guys, i was just sitting and a thought popped up in my mind that was of some fun, what could one do or undo if one got back 20 years of ones' life. even if we cant get there remember it's easy to do or undo whatever you wish, you know how? ask GOD to undo what you cant and ask GOd to do it for you what you want either here or in the here after eternal living. but do respond, it will be fun,

My dear apple... that is a really good question...mmm Actually if I can go back 20 years... first of all I will be so happy... happy of have tha possibility of live my life again... but I will keep all tha mistakes I made, because they made me wiser, I will keep all the bad times, because they made me stronger... And of course I will enjoy all the good times, because they made me Happy... and that is my big goal in life Be Happy, and make people around me Happy! I will pay more attention to little things, details... to make sure I do not miss my life waiting for big stuff... I will hug my parents and friends more often, I tell them more often how much I love them... I will try to sleep less, so I will have more time to enjoy with my family and friends... All that just to make my life a little happier... Anyway I love the life I have, I live everyday as it was the last one... and I am Happy! I do no regret my decisions... so my life will be really close to the one I have... But go to all over again will be fun! I am sure!

I would like to go back 23yrs, when i was 2yrs old, so that I could hug and kiss my father, and tell him how much I've missed him all these years, I would tell him to forgive me for judging him, and tell him I will always love and remember him no matter what. It would a more beautiful memory of him then the one I currently have.

To go back in time 20 years... ouch. I'd be 13 again. That is NOT a time I want to relive at all! I don't ever want to be a teenager again. I don't know what I would do differently. Things aren't perfect right now, but who knows how they could be if I changed something. i could end up making things worse! I prefer to look to the future, than to look to the past.

hi cassidy, i am sorry i am replying late. iwas fixing up some things.lol. so you wouldnt want to go back 20 years.boo hoo hoo i wanna cry. kidding. ok lets go 20 years in the future, i see cassidy sitting in a cool place, so cool that she is really cool, and is in perfect peace with her, sitting with a bowl of grapes, feeling the beautiful breeze adn in her heart is calm and niceness and serenity. no thoughts of the past no worries of the future. no body offends her now because she is beyond that now and can dismiss anyone with a straight simple look not bothering at all, by THE GRACE OF GOD she has all she could ever want and is a much more cooler person, not very much in a hurry always to jump from one thing to another, and what can i say she is just so cool. smiles( i hope you liked it) i see this and much more, great things for you , GOD BLESS you HIS CHOICIEST BLESSINGS ever.

Hello,friend, If I am back to 20 years ,I am just one year old,How can I know what could I do or what I couldn't do ,In answering your qusetion ,allow me to shorten this age span ,what about go back to 10 years?If I can go back to 10 years I will well commubicate with other kids,b/c in my childhood I not playing with others well,and I even don't know how to communcate with others ,of course I don't have a memorable childhood as a lot of other children.and that is why I am a reserve girl.however,luckly,in my middle school.a lot of my classmate want to be my friends,even myself don't know why ,maybe that is because of my special character.In my childhood I often dream to be a teacher,and I am enjoying the process of teaching,so nowadays in my summer holiday I will choose teachers as my part time job,and I have a lot of good friends among my students,really a kind of happiness.

ok. firstly i am sorry for replying so late, i was in my own little world,(no cheating), learning, thinking as usual. ok, so we go back 10 years only, then you are quiet, in your self , thinking how the other kids are screemng shouting throwing mud at each other and molly is sitting at the stairs and looking at everybody and thinking what they are doing , why they are doing. right? you are sweet and know you must have always been a sweet child, like the shweet shweet molly you are. and you better be like that with me always ok? or i am going to take us back 15 years and be your age too and be in your school too and i will pull your hair and put chewing under on your seat. nodding my head, like "i did not do it molly". be happy always my dear friend. GOD BLESS us and every body else.

Get back 20 whole years?? My son would be 1 year old, so I would be 20 years old. I would still be married to his dad, and that would be a bad situation all over again. If only he had never been violent with me... On the upside, though, I would have attended nursing school earlier, and I would have lots more money in my life!!!

I would love to go back 20 years. I would be 28 years old. I felt better then, looked better then, and I would hope that I'd know what I know now, and could have made better decisions, with the rest of my life. I could have gotten out of my unhappy marriage, before it went farther downhill. I could be happy right now.

brenda you are amazing. and somehow i know that you are so full of love and the people who are full of love are full of love for a reason, they not only make this place bautiful but also adorn heaven, that is the power given to love. though i know what you mean, wiat a bit brenda and then we will be on heaven's door, singing that song "knock knock knocking on heaven's door". you are a very good person and 20 years is just a statement here, you will get 20 eternal blissful lives. wow. i wanna have it too. love, apple. smiles for you.

If I could take back the last 20 years of my life I would take care of my first marriage. At the time I could not see it but I took it for granted. Both long hours at work and then the computer at home told her that she was of less importance. Never ever take your love for granted. One day it will walk out the door.

well if i could go back 20 years it would make me a teen again,and those years were great only because my father was around,but sadly he passed 4 years ago,so i guess the great times of my would be then because of him,but now too because of all the happiness i have in my life now is worth every precious moment to me,which i will hold on to very dearly,my beautiful family,and my great friends.

20 years backward ha? I would be 8 years old *laughs*. I don't think there would be much things I would love to change. I never spend time on regretting the things I have done anyway. I would just totally enjoy myself if I were 8 again and definitely laugh harder and enjoy the childhood!

If I take off 20 years of my life, I'd be going on 2. I don't think I'd ever wish to go back though, because I don't regret anything in my life.

Yuck! That would make me 11 again and I hated my youth. Maybe go back to about 16 after I left home. Yeah there would be things I would have liked to change. Get more education and stuff. But honestly I needed to do everything I did, good and bad, to get to where I am today which I wouldn't want to change. So I am good.

Wow, just thinking about the amount of time that 20 years has, I got more than 20 truck loads of "FUN" to undo. Twenty years ago, I would tell myself, "Whatever makes you happy, just do it!" But wiser now, that everything you do for the sake of happiness will not produce as much happiness for tomorrow. The chance to undo things, I would ask God to give me the WISDOM earlier in my youth so I would have to make the better, not the bitter (hehehehehehehe), choices. The gift of wisdom will lead me to care for my great body and my even greater spirit........that is the kind of FUN ( read, happiness) that ask God. Just thinking aloud, I would have been sexier and smarter had I received wisdom early on. Everything has its season!

Hi Apple, I would most probably have a big party if this ever was an option to take 20 years off my age right now ;) With all the knowledge from now, I hope I'll be able to avoid many mistakes that I have made in the past years, and be more forgivable right from when I was 23, as hatred, and revenge has been a big hurdle for me for many years. I only strted to liberate myself from it in the last 5 years ;) This is i think one of the benefits. The others will be that I'll look better and not so tired and stressed as right now, and this will make me feel great too ;)

i wonder how you are so sweet when you say that you used to be angry and revengeful, maybe it was mild that's all. but i am sure you are a very wonderful person, no doubt about that. and tell you what, wait wait we are gone a have some and i mean wholesome times in heaven. smiles. love, prayers, your small apple.
