DailyBlog : If You Could Change One Thing

** Special March announcement, this month saw the publication of the very first book in a six novella dystopian series I’ve been working on since early 2015. “Dark World : The Surface Girl” only $0.99 on kindle, or FREE if you’re a part of Kindle Unlimited! Check it out!

For the sake of blogging and self-exploration and contemplation, I answer a question a day off of this list.

Today’s question : If you had the chance to go back in time and change one thing would you do it?

The simple answer to this question is “Yes, definitely.” But then I have to pause, re-read the question and wonder why it’s not more specific. What kind of change is it referring to? Is it even about me, and if it is, is it referencing changing a choice I made, or something that happened to me that I had no choice in, or does that include global changes that are way bigger/beyond just myself?

In terms of ME, I think everyone would make different choices with the knowledge of hindsight. Maybe we wouldn’t have fallen in love with that person that broke our hearts in a million pieces. Sure we can say, “well we learned a lesson from that” but be honest, if we could go back and avoid that pain, most of us would. Or maybe it’s someone else’s action or choice that hurt us or effected our lives in a negative way that we would change if we could.

Or maybe we’d go back in time and give Donald Trump’s father a condom, or Hitler’s. This question is so broad that I could spend hours going over different possibilities, but I think in general it’s safe to say that everyone would want to change SOMETHING, if given the chance. Including me.

  1. Congrats on your publication!

    I think about that question a lot, not because I’m wondering what I’d do, but because I know exactly what I’d do and I wish I could do it… I wouldn’t remove an entire event or person from my past, but there are certain incidents I wish I had handled differently. Things I let people get away with, times I didn’t stand up for myself and wish I had. That’s what I would go back and change.
