All Those Precious Memories

Finish the Sentence Friday

“If I could go back in time…I would just observe all those precious memories.” 

This reminds me of the post we did back in July “If I could go back in time and change something it would be..


Sure I would love to go back and revisit all those beautiful moments with Dino. I’d love to go back and visit my time as a child and see my parents when they were younger. I’d love to watch past memories and cherish each and every one…sadly time passes too fast.

Would I go back in time…

  • to whisper in my ear how to defeat my grammar school bullies? 
  • to threaten the bullies? 
  • to my time as a teen and whisper to stop being such an idiot. My parents DO KNOW more than me.
  • to whisper in my ear to not open credit cards?
  • to whisper in my ear to save more money? 
  • to whisper in my ear to not go so crazy trying to get pregnant…it WILL happen much later when the time is right. 
  • to whisper in my ear to not buy a condo that we would eventually lose? 
  • to whisper in my ear to take more date nights with my hubby…we will so need them.

These are all great ideas, but I wouldn’t do any of them. One slight change could effect everything moving forward. What if one small change finds me living without my Dino? That is just too much of a risk to take…My life unfolded just as it was supposed to…and for that I am grateful. 

What would you do if you could go back in time?

  1. Totally hear you on this and it is like the movie Back to the Future. One small thing might change everything else and at this point my life is too good to have that happen, too 🙂

  2. Yes. Everything you’ve ever done is what’s made you who you are today … that’s my theory. I may want to change the course of tomorrow based on what I’ve learned, but I don’t want to change the past. 🙂

  3. I love that we both said changing anything would be much too big of a risk, but sheesh if I could go back and tell myself to save more money, I might have to consider that one. Awesome post as always, Karen!

  4. Your sentence about the potential for your Dino not being here stopped me cold. I was with you on the whispers up until then. How unthinkable if you went back and tweaked it so that he wasn’t here. YIKES. Here’s to enjoying what we have. Now!

  5. OK, so there was apparently a local reason for that feeling of deja vu when I finished my post! I had apparently written it once before lol. Hey, at least I’m consistent about what I would like to change if given the chance. 🙂 It would be nice to just be a fly on the wall for some things.

Would love to read your thoughts
