I time travel

Okay before you sign me up for a class in basket weaving, hear me out. To me time travel in one sense is living so much in the past, either in good times or regrets or dreaming about a future you want that you're not really fully planted in the present. If you're always thinking of what was or could've been or what could be - couldn't you miss what's right in front of you? So - do you time travel - if so - where do you go and who do you visit - past love - future love? Do you stare at the moon, or watch your favourite movie, cook your favourite dinner, do you walk along cold, snowy streets dreaming of you future love? Someone to share romantic moonlit nights with, to cuddle on the couch and share your favourite movie, to cook for or be cooked for - or to cook together, a warm hand to hold in the cold, a shoulder to put your arm around as you hurry along? Maybe its your dream job, dream house, all the things you'll do for your family when you're a famous author or rock star or business person. Do you time travel - where to and whom do you visit?

I daydream or time travel frequently! I think about the future a lot. How my kids my be grown up...and I am not trying to rush that at all! I think about a time when all of our finances are set and we can live comfortably. Lately I have thought about being able to see my husband on a daily basis, not having a "phone marriage." I also find myself daydreaming about degrees I might get and the jobs to follow. There are so many things. I usually do this while I am nursing the baby. My mind will wander off as she falls asleep in my arms.

I've done the same - its not that I'm in a rush for my nine month old to grow up - I'm even going to miss nursing and I used to hate it as it was excruciating - but I daydream of when he can show his personality more - likes and dislikes ask for things and give opinions. What his first friend will be like - will he have friends and be outgoing - his first girl.... Hope you see him on a daily basis soon - is he enlisted?

Yes, he is enlisted. We are actually trying to get to Kirtland. :) His parents live in Albuquerque. Right now though, he is tossing around the idea of just getting out. He has 12 years in though and that is a lot of time to give up.

Did we talk about this in another discussion? My husband contracts to Customs/Homeland Security because its pretty good pay for being able to mostly play his mini PS2 all day but way to dangerous to his health. Kirkland is a really nice base. They even have this mommy boot camp here! There's a great track surrounded by trees and encircling a huge grassy area and that's where they go. Haven't joined yet. The mommies work out with their baby strollers. Its pretty darn cool.

Hey, artemis. I love this topic--time travel. If I should time-travel, I would like to go and pay a visit to my previous turn of life. I want to know how I was living or what kind of life I was living.It must be funny though to know one's previous turn of life and I would also like to time-travel to the next turn of life that I will lead. I also want to know how life will be to me. Anyway I will still come back to my real life to pay more attention to my presnet life after these two time-travels. Thanks for the topic.

williamjisir - I love your answer - do you ever come back and read these replies to replies - you give thoughtful answers but usually not in response to my discussion questions - only the title. I have to say though I too would one to know about my past lives as well and future. Good luck and keep my words in mind. I always mark the plus sign for you but some people may mark the negative if you only answer to the title and not the body of the discussion. Just to let you know. Be well my friend.

More than anything I "time travel" into the future. Imagining ways that I would like the outcome of my life to become. Sometimes it's simplicity. Spending a quite evening at home watching television or movies. Sometimes it's more complex and fantasy like... being a movie star interviewed on television! I try not to "time travel" into the past as I feel it's best to not do that and relive moments you wished you had lived differently or just moments that you miss and that's where I go if I go into the past and then I come back to "present" very sad and that's just no fun. At least a future, whether real or not, is fun and carefree whereas the past is not so much!

I do regret what I had done in the past, and I try to recall when things went from good to worse. I am always analyzing whether it was the way my father was or was it when my father remarried and I got a stepsister who pretended to be worldly, and me, being rather guilable, thought she was. Anyway she and her brother got me into so much trouble. I am sure that if my father had meant a woman who had more control on her family, things would have not gone the way they did. I sometimes wonder if when I ran away at three or four years old, that the spanking I got had not killed my initiative. So right now, except for those wishes things would have been different, I stay in the present. I do go into the future as well, and imagine me being cured, and those who wronged me getting what they deserve.

A fellow time travelor - suspensful, I wish you peace, a forgiving and resolving of the past so that you can live fully and more healthfully in the present and look forward to a more intereesting future.

We all time travel. Don't believe it? You just moved a few seconds into the future.

Have you noticed that a majority of your responses - all I look at are only one or two lines and some, like this one, although cute, don't speak to the actual discussion? If you're happy then I'm happy for you, if you want to make more money here or more real friends you may want to change it up a bit! Whatever you choose - have fun mylotting. :)

I'm a man of few words. I like to get to the point. I'm not here for the pennies, so that doesn't motivate me to engage in long winded discussions either. I glad you think my answer was cute, but it exactly sums up my feelings on the topic. If it takes a lot of words to say what you have in mind - give it more thought. -- quote by Dennis Roth

I appreciate your response. I guess I was targeting readers who wanted to talk about themselves and their thinking about the past or daydreaming about the future as that is what my topic is actually about. I think there are a lot of people who think about the past, good times and bad or the future - and don't live fully in the present. I like to talk - that's why I'm here! II like to hear from people who want to share a little bit about themselves. Their ideas, opinions and perspectives. Sometimes this takes more than a few words or a joke. Joking is good too though. Have fun mylotting.
