If you could turn back the hands of time what would you do?

We are all here because of what happened in the past and yes, sometimes there are things we regret or things that we failed to do before. Although, we won't probably be here now or things would be different right now if it wasn't for the past, if you had the chance to turn back time, what would you do? At what time would you return? Is there anything you wish to change or do? I have two things on my mind... I'd probably go back to that time when my father was still in good health, I'd do anything to stop him from smoking or doing anything that would lead to him to lung cancer. If I could prevent that then he would still be with us right now...

I think everything did happen for a reason. I am satisfied with whats going with my life their are mistakes I made, but moving on, is what's important. However if I could turn back time. I could have had taken a different course, I should have had taken a course that is what i like and that is related to my interest. I should have had taken a noble course. I find it hard to enjoy what i am doing right now. And the only thing I can do is make the best out of it.

They say that everything happens for a reason, I want to believe that but right now I don't know what those reasons are. No matter what you're going through right now, I hope everything turns out well for you. You're right, even if it is hard to enjoy what you are actually doing, just make the best out of it. Who knows, the future might turn out better because of it. Thank you for sharing!

Oh I see... And I understand. I guess, all you could do now is to make the best out of everything for your kids. Thanks for the response!

It is not necessery that you went to your past to change something which is bad, you can go beck to enjoy some moment which you think is the best moment in your life or one of the best moments. I think it would give you a happiness which is speachless. Life is to short so enjoy every moment of it. Best of luck, ES

I think that I probably wouldn't have married my first husband but the tough part of that is that I wouldn't have my 4 grown children or the 9 beautiful grandchildren that I now have. Very tough choice!! But the marriage was a very rough one and one that my life would have been better and happier without, even with having 4 children, who I have raised and enjoyed on my own.......and 9 grandchildren who he has only ever met one of!!

I see. Thanks for sharing. And yes, if some certain things didn't happen in the past some things won't also happen now or in the future. Thanks!

If time can be turned back,i would pay a lot of time for enjoyment. when i was a schoolchild,i seldom had time to play with friends or travel with my parents,cause we were all busy,i took the study seriously,they took the work hardly. Now,i'm 25 ,i just regret i have not such colourful days in the past life,maybe it will also affect my character:(

I see. Thanks for sharing your story, you can still have colorful days in the future. You can have those instead of having ones in the past. Right? What matters is now for the sake of tomorrow. Thanks!
