If you could return to the past to relive a part of your life, either to experience the wonderful bits again, or to do something over, which part of you life would you return to? Why?
If I could return to the past I’d want to go back to being a young kid again. Just to experience the simplest joys of life all over again. Watching cartoons, amazement at so many new things, walking on the beach for the first time and the first time I get soaked as a wave crashes all over me. Eating ice cream and chocolate as a kid was pretty special and if you had a big scoopful of your favourite ice cream right in front of you, there wasn’t a care in the world that could bring you down from that high. Watching my favourite tv shows of that era once again, simple stuff that usually we find to be cheesy as we grow older but man was it so much fun when we were young.
Playing football, 7 tiles, hide n seek, etc with my friends growing up was so much joy. Can I relive those moments once again. Board games, video games – stuff that is considered so old school now but really people don’t know what they are missing. Laughing at the silliest things because at that age you find them funny. That’s the age of innocence. And also for the main reason that I’d want to go back and start afresh at an early part of my life – I want a second chance to do things differently, to correct many wrongs and get things to be much better than they are now and have been. I want to do things over and make the right choices and work harder.
I know it is impossible to really go back and do things over but I can’t help but wish for it.
