During our bible study last week, we were asked by our study leader this “timeless” question. “If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be? Most of the group answered that they would like to go back to their childhood and had more fun while others said that they should have done better with past relationships.
As for me, happy and regretful memories jumbled inside my head. I should have done this, I should have done that. The sad but beautiful thing is, LIFE happens and I would change ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
The things that happened in the past contribute to what we are today regardless of whether we like how we turned out. Those moments defined who we are today. And besides changing one thing in the past will set a new course for the rest of our lives. It could be better or it could be worse. Anyways just try to watch the movie “The Butterfly Effect” and you’ll know what I’m saying.
For me, I am way more excited for the future and I have to thank my past for that.
So if I would ask you, would you go back? 🙂
I like writing mundane stuffs on any piece of paper on hand may it be math formulas, complex scientific concepts that I have a hard time understanding, catchy quotes and song lyrics , and many more out of a sudden thoughts and ideas that pop out of my mind. I am not a creative writer but I am a scientific one. In my line of work, it is a prerequisite to write my papers as concise and clear as possible which is usual in creating scientific reports. Lately, I have this urge to really record all experiences (good or bad) of my life. (I know it sounds cliche :)) and so I decided to create my own blog. You should create your own too! If you are still undecided, here’s a couple of reasons I can think of on why you should create your own blog.
1. It’s liberating to pour all your thoughts out.
2. Gives you a creative mindset.
3. Makes you more sensitive to the world around you.
4. Gives you a sense of purpose.
5. A nice account of your life so that when you grow old, you can go back and read all the funny, sad, and all together memorable experiences you’ve had.
