If you could only bring back the time?

If you have the power to rewind the past then what are the things that you are supposed or you want to do? Are there any things that you want to correct as well? What are they? Maybe in my case if I could only bring back time then I would rather be focusing in studying the 3d so at least now if I am going to master the 3d then I am now working on it.

That really is a good question. I would absolutely love to go back in time. I think if I were able to do this. I would enjoy my single life and having the least amount of responsibilities. This would free up a lot of my time to volunteer to help teach others and to go to college and get an associates degree. When I was younger I was so focused on getting married and starting a family. I know that the majority of us are when we are young. But so many people who were married tried to help me see the benefits of being single and the opportunities it presented to me. But for me being single was the worst thing in the world and I would think to myself "well they can say those things because they are in a relationship, they are happy and have one another." So if I were able to go back in time I would focus my time on other things rather than being discouraged because I wasn't in a relationship.

If I could bring back the time, i would. There are many things I wanted to change in the past such as finishing my studies on time, refraining from eating too much sweets (i am now a type 1 diabetic), trying out new and exciting things like bungee jumping, saving up money for a rainy day and a lot more..

Hi Metatronik, Good question and a good topic for discussion. I have thought long and hard about this one for a very long time, and the only answer that I can come up with is: everything and nothing, but ultimately nothing. Let me explain. I made some poor choices/decisions in my life over the past 14/15 years especially. If I could turn back the time, I've thought about tweaking it in such a way that I would know back then what I know now; in simpler terms I guess being wiser. That would've made life a heck of a lot easier for me and may well have save tremendous heartache all round. I have to say that I'm referring to my marriage because next I want to talk about my children. If I were wiser then I can only assume now that I wouldn't have gone on to have had two kids with someone I wasn't going to be with for life, and I wouldn't have married him if I'd have known all the things I have learned in the past 14 years. So, that's why I say everything and nothing, because there is nothing that I would change in my past if it meant not having my kids. Furthermore, I'm of the perspective that everything happens for a reason and even more importantly to me, everything that happens to me is there to shape how I turn out. I suppose they're life's little (or humongous!) tests, sent to see how I cope. I can only hope that what's been happening only serves to make me a better, stronger (in mind, soul and spirit) person. Rant over.....! IrishGal77 :)

I would do many things differently if I could go back in time. A would not go to college at 18, but do a one or two year course that helps me earn money, then maybe work for a year or two before applying for higher education. So I wouldn't have to work full time while being a full time student, making it easier to concentrate on my studies. I would try to enjoy being a single.

If i had the power to rewind the past, I would live more wisely.And i would have a better life.But if we can't rewind, i think we should not think of rewinding, Because if we are thinking of it we have nothing to achieve but to regret. As a result of this we only have a bad mood.So it's better to look forward and learn to draw a lesson from the past.

If I could turn back time I would go back to Easter Sunday when I was 9 years old. I remember how warm it was that day and my brothers and I took our can fishing poles and walked across the pasture to sit and fish in the ditch. I remember how wonderful the air smelled, so clean and fresh and I remember that morning the rooster crowing through the woods at my grandfathers house. We flew kites in the pasture that afternoon and my mother made a big easter dinner. That evening we chased fireflies and just sat on the porch and listened to the crickets chirping. That is where I would go if I could turn back time.

If I could only bring back the time I should have accepted a work overseas. I should have a different life now or I did not shift my course from Education to Business Administration. There's a better future in Education now. I might be a principal already or I should be looking up to good retirement benefits. If I could bring back the time, I should have not resigned from my telegraph office too. My colleagues who have stayed for 20 years and above got one million pesos for their voluntary resignation.

This is definatley a really good question. It is something I have gone over in my mind too many times to count. There are so many things that I would do differently, or simply do or not do. I met my husband when I was 18 years old. He was a single daddy raising three beautiful girls. I instantly fell in love with the entire family and knew that I belonged there with them. At age 23 I gave birth to our youngest daughter, and had a tubal the next day. "Why not?" was the answer I gave everyone who asked why. We had four daughters, we didn't need any more kids. I would go back and not have that tubal done. I am almost 32 now, and would give anything to experience the whole pregnancy, having a new tiny baby bit again. But, that can only happen now if God sees fit to let the tubes slide a bit and come untied. Also, I would do all that I could to be a better wife. We hit a rough patch a couple years ago, and I really had to step back and look at the wife I had been to my husband. Things happened, life changed for us, but we were able to work through it all. But I can't help but wonder...if I was a better wife, would they ever have happened at all? Those are things that weigh on my shoulders everyday. Thank you for the question. This is my first time on here in a couple years, and you gave me the best possible topic to respond to. You definately got my mind going again. Hope you have a great week!
