TO TURN BACK THE TIME, WHICH PART OF YOUR LIFE WOULD YOU WANT TO GO BACK? Last night, I wasn't able to sleep right away so I take a look of my old pictures...How I wish I was young again, not only because it really feels so good to be young but I thought of the things I've done in my past especially of getting pregnant, it's not that I don't want to have a baby but maybe if I only planned it well--finished my studies and have a good work maybe things turned out more better. If I could only turn back the time maybe my life is much, much better.

Whenever I encounter questions like that I would always remember the lines in the movie A walk to remember saying "...there are moments when i wish i could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but i have the feeling that if i did, the joy would be gone as well..." There are a number of experiences I would like to go back to, but then I guess, I just have to learn to move on and appreciate the fact that I will always have those memories treasured in my heart.

yeah i believe that things happen for a reason, and the mistakes, memories etc make you for what you are today. i would not have changed anything from my life, but i would love to see myself when i was young and innocent, i miss it lol, but i don't want to fiddle with it cause then it could possibly change the future.

Sometimes, we can't avoid to still remember our past especially the happy days and sometimes if we could only bring back the time surely we wanted to bring those happy moments of our life coz we want to experience that again but chances are we could not avoid to encounter the sad moments of our life as well and most probably things won't be that way again. well, guess you're right, let's just cherish those precious moments in our hearts. Thanks.

hi, well if I could only do that I would probably let you go back in your past. nways, if you did something bad in the past you could still correct that now, it's never too late you know, you're still breathing and there's always a room for improvement and changes.

I want to go back to the times when my grandparents are still alive. I want to hug them again and tell them that I miss and love them so much. When my parents are both working, my grandparents take care of me. In this time, everything changed. I miss them too much, the way they spoiled me and treated me like their little princess... Also, I want to turn back time, and be there to see them and take my boyfriend with me. Because my grandparents are not able to see the man I will be marrying soon... I want them to see and and meet him and I want to tell them not to worry, because I am happy...

I would love to go back to my college years. I would go back and have more fun than I did, I was always so boring that most people do not believe I went to the school that I did. (It had a reputation for being a bit of a party school at the time). I would also think more carefully about a major and what I wanted to do with my life. It has not been easy to find a job with any potential, with a B.A. in psychology. I only worried about what interested me at the time, not really what would be useful to me after college. I would also take more of an interest in exercising and eating healthy, so maybe I wouldn't be needing to lose 50 pounds now. Unfortunately, most of us have to learn things the hard way. When we're young, we often don't listen to those who have the benefit of experience. I am sure if I do have children, I will try to tell them what I have learned....and they will go ahead and do what they want, anyway...also learning the hard way.

Maybe I will go back to the time when I was 13-16. That was the point in my life that I will admit, I was a bad kid. And I was so stubborn that I have offended many people including my teachers and my family. Actually I knew my family was hurt on those times.

Yes, if I could go back to the past and change my reaction or change the moment then it would be the moment when my father left home. He looked at me and said that I could invite him back for my birthday if I wanted to and I did not and for the next 20 years I refused to talk to him and yes I would change that. I know how you feel about children. I lost my chance to have one. I would not have a child unless I was married well I am 52 and I am not married and now cannot have children. Maybe I did the world a favor. I mean we need to have less children not more but when I was 16 all I wanted from life was to be married and have children. It did not happen and now it never will. I cannot change that. It is life but it adds to my sadness.

I'd like to go back to the time when I was slim. I shouldn't have eaten too much when I was pregnant. And now I'm stuck with the pounds! hehehe! Seriously, I'd like to get back to the time when I was young, free and single. Though I'm pretty much contented with the way things are in my life now, there are a lot of things I wish I did back then that I cannot do now that I am married with kids.

i don't think i want to change any part of my life... i believe that every single moment and event that happens in my life is in God's control and they happen for a reason... so i keep my faith in Him and trust Him completely to guide my life... there is no point regretting the past as you can't change anything anymore... what we can do is just to learn ffrom the past and not to repeat the same mistake again... it is much better to look forward to the future... take care and have a nice day...

Maybe I'd like to go back to that part when I was applying as a flight attendant to Saudia Air and had given up the thought of being hired by them, only it turned out that they gave me the notice of being hired on the day of my wedding. I don't mean to desire that part in my life but I'm just a little bit curious how things should have been...

I would go back to my high school days..Specifically, first year high school. Because it all started there. I mean, the smoking, bad study habits, bad companies, young and stup*d love, cutting classes and many more negative things..The good things, i would have to retain.. but then, come to think of it, I wouldn't be what I am today, if it werent for all the mistakes and mishaps that happened in my young life..I became a much stronger person, more responsible of my actions, more matured than I could ever think of, and more loving and thoughtful.. I guess, all things happened with reasons..God would not have given me the trials, if He knew that I would not be able to surpass it all, or that if those mistakes,hurdles in life, would make me more miserable.. So, maybe, I wouldn't wanna change anything at all..This is me, and I now love me... Maybe, just a better life, without rearranging my past..
