would you rather live for a week in the past or in the future?
Initially I thought the past so I could right some wrongs. You see I was a snob and a bully when I was younger. It's not something that I'm proud of but it's the truth.
There are a few people that I would definitely treat differently if I could have a do over.
But then I think maybe that was part of my journey. I have evolved from that person into a much more forgiving, generous person. Yes, I can be snarky, but I try not to be hurtful. I try to encourage rather than discourage people & believe it or not I try NOT to have a negative attitude towards things.*
So my official answer would be the future. I'd love to see how all the kiddos look in a few years. To see how they have grown and if there was anything that I could do to push them in one direction or another.
I can only hope that it would be a good look ahead but if it isn't then getting that peek would give me an opportunity to try and make it better.
Now it's your turn: would you rather live for a week in the past or in the future?
*Notice I said try because let's be honest it is damn hard to remain positive everyday, all day, in all situations. To me that is not realistic. Not for me anyway.
