A few evenings ago, our son Jon was home for a visit. While he was there, a discussion came up about something he had posted on his Facebook page. Jon's posting was very thought provoking. It went something like this: If you could go back and relive any day of your life, would you chose a really good day and enjoy the experience again, or would you chose a horrible day (due to personal choices) and try to change the circumstances?
On the one hand, some might desire to relive that really good day - to recapture what it felt like. Perhaps current circumstances are difficult and to go back in the past to a favorite moment might raise the spirit and provide some much needed encouragement. Maybe a return to former glory would serve as an escape from the present.
On the other hand, to return to a bad day and change it would indeed be challenging. It might require owning one's poor choices. It might entail hard decisions and even harder work. Would it be worth the effort? Would it re-shape things so that today would be different?
If you were given that choice, which would you choose?
