Home - Two in the bush

Two in the bush

I would be the first to agree that I have made a lot of bad choices in my life. I am sure everyone would love to hear the long list, (who wouldn’t) ๐Ÿ˜‰ but I am not going to go into that. I have wondered how it would be if life had a rewind button. We could all go back in time and change our mistakes. But then, if everyone did that then that would mess up everything. Who knows, someone might go back in time and kill you.

That is why I felt that only I should have that kind of power, you know, because I am the only one who could be trusted with such powers. Seriously!!!

Now if I did have such powers, even if it for one hour, wouldn’t that be awesome? I could go back in time and advice myself on some lottery numbers, or advice which shares to buy, which to sell and when. Remeber the movie Hot Tub Time Machine, where this guy goes back to the past and bets on games because he knew what was going to happen?

Unfortunately, I would be afraid to do anything that would change what and where I am now. Even a slight change could have far reaching consequence in my life. I might never meet some of my friends and some might turn out to hate me. I am pretty certain that I wouldn’t end up with this amazing job that I have where I remove virus infections from computers. I am pretty certain that most people would want more money, better job, better chance at life or even an opportunity to open their heart to the one that got away. But not me.

Risk is good, but not when it comes to relationships and things that you hold dear. So, two in the bush is certainly not better than the one in hand.

There is still something that I might want to change. I have a friend who is miserable due to some of the choices. I might just be tempted to change her future even if it means she will never know me.

  2. Great reflexions. At first I was like “of course you should travel back in time” but you’re right to say that any detail could change who you are now and the people you know.

    Better act on the present then!

  3. Go for it and make a difference in her life anyway… Life is short, no? And a bird in hand is definitely worth two in the bush!

  5. Would you be able to keep the secret when you came back and saw the difference you made in her life? Great post!

    • I will have to, won’t I. After all, I wouldn’t want her to think I am mad. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Also, people don’t like when others interfere in their life, even if it for their own good.
