Would you rather…..

  1. Hm, if I could do either, I’d choose to go back. But not so much to change circumstances, but rather to go back with the wisdom I have today to better understand myself and others in earlier years.

    1. I think there is a saying that goes something like ‘youth is wasted on the young???’ – yes, there is much wisdom that comes from maturing, but you’ll never convince the teens of this!

  2. It seems the more decades that are added to my life span, the more and further I am able to “go back,” at least in memory. My past has both big ups and big downs. In going back in memory, I don’t change what happened, but I change now, in my attitude about what it all means in the larger scheme of things. Time is a sort of leveler.

  3. Reminds me of the old hymn . . . “many things about tomorrow I don’t seem to understand. But I know who holds tomorrow and I know who holds my hand.”

  4. Strange, Andie. I neither want to know the future nor want to change the past. The older I get, the softer the edges of my past get. At this point, I look at death in the future and am enjoying the process of getting there.
    Neat question though.

  5. Christ knew His future. Every detail of it. What is to happen and how it would happen. And He lived with it every moment of His life; and at the end … He went through it all just for us.

    Would we really be able to live with ourselves if we knew what is to happen to us?

    God bless.

  6. I don’t want to know my future. But I sure wish I could change some of my past. But if I did that, I suppose I wouldnt be the person I am today. Who knows? I guess that’s why humans can’t interrupt the time-space continuum.

    Bad enough James Kirk did it as often as he did. 😉
