What’s this you say?
Time machines? Why would we be discussing this on Jennie’s blog?
Lately it seems the concept of time machines comes up quite often in Twitter conversation. Mostly in the context of WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE?
I think over the years this answer would have been different for me. In my youth I’d have said go back and change the traumas of my childhood. At the end of relationships I would have said go back and wipe those out altogether. During swimsuit season I’d say go back and make sure I didn’t gain so much weight in my first pregnancy so I wouldn’t struggle with that so much all my life. When I was unemployed I would have gone back and finished a college degree much earlier.
The real problem here is that this becomes a list of REGRETS. And I really don’t care for that concept.
The truth is, I don’t have regrets because I understand that my current life is a summary of all of my experiences, good and bad. There is no other path I could have taken that would have brought me here, where I am right now.
HERE. This is exactly where I want and need to be.
So what would I change? I’d probably go back to last week and make sure I won the lottery. I wouldn’t want to risk changing anything beyond that. My recent experiences have been just too perfect.
