If I could turn back time…



This past Sunday at 2:00 in the morning, we were supposed to turn our clocks back as Daylight Savings Time came to an end. Although most of us probably snored through it, in essence, we got to relive one hour — 60 precious minutes — that morning. Which got me thinking…

What if you could turn back time and relive one hour of your life differently?

Kind of like in the Cher song, but perhaps without the thong and leather and chains. It’d be your shot at a cosmic “do over” of sorts – maybe to right some long-standing wrong or change a life-altering decision you’d made in the past. Especially if it were something you’d done or said while drinking.

Would you, for instance, go back and call a cab to pick you up instead of getting behind the wheel that night?

Would you have held your tongue during that argument?

Would you have turned that potential strange bedfellow away?

I suspect you’re thinking about those promises: “We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it.” and “We will see how our experience can benefit others.”

So you might answer “No” – because it’s all part of the journey.

I get that. But I’m still a newbie. I’ve just started my work, and I’m not there yet. I am hopeful that I will see those promises realized.

Still, I can’t help wondering…

  1. The list of things I would go back and change is a mighty long one
