If you could go back in time and change things, would you? This is the question Steve and I have been discussing since we finished reading the latest Stephen King novel 11/22/63. Now, before you get all judge-y about our reading material, please understand this is not your typical Stephen King novel. It’s really, really good and it will make you think about whether or not changing past mistakes is such a good idea.
I’ve thought about the many stupid things I’ve done in my life and what I would do if I could change them. I’d love to go back the re-write my college history but I realize it makes me the person I am today. In many ways, the anger and immaturity I showed in my 20s made me grow up. The mistakes I made (and will continue to make) help me make better decisions in the future. Or at least that’s what I’d like to think. Sometimes I have to learn things the hard way over and over again.
So, would you change things? How do you think that would affect your future? Something to think about, that’s for sure.
