I'd chase my father out to the car and forgive him for leaving us. Because I knew he was leaving... and I forgave him. But he never knew that. I wouldn't try to stop him. I'd just tell him that I understood so that he could have shed some of the guilt he lives with. God, to be ten years old again.
I really had to think hard about this, but I wouldn't change any mistake I've made. I like who I am, and my mistakes eventually led to something great.The things I would change are the moments that pass by when I consider doing something, but don't because I fear it may be a wrong move. I would take that five minutes to tell my younger self to "suck it up, take chance and believe in me."Thanks for making me think :-)
Whoa. This is a tough one. I think everything I've done has made me into the person I am, so I don't know that I'd change anything...
I would have totally kissed a particular long time crush of mine on graduation night. :) He ended up kissing my cheek that night and then confessing his feelings for me YEARS later, when he was already married. Oops!
I don't think I'd change anything. I'd prefer to go back and choose a moment that I'd like to notice more details of. My kids are now 8 and 5 years old and I'd love to catch even the briefest glimpse of them as babies in my arms again.
I would have started writing frantically after I wrote that short story in creative writing class about the end of the world. Instead, I didn't pursue writing as a teenage like I should have...that would have been the moment I would change.
I've got to give this one some thought....P.S. I've linked to your blog on my site....
