It amuses me that we spend so many minutes thinking about the past but yet not one person I know would want to re-live their life all over again!!

Bear in mind that I have had a really lucky life so far, not financially, but with people..............good parents and home life, good husband and happy marriage, children that haven't given us too many problems etc.

If I had had a life of misery up to now...............that would give me a different view of the past!

No- had a lot of heartache in the past.

So many loved ones dying at an early age,my first husband included.

Then met my lovely second husband, and shiver at the thoughts of the past.

That's the thing...... we all probably would if we could tweak it here and there but if it had to be exactly the same with the same pains and gains, we'd probably rather not!

I agree that the past makes us the person we are today, and I genuinely like the person mine has made me, but I wouldn't want to go thru every day again!!

And New Day Dawning...... I disagree that we all do it time and time again..... I believe in re-incarnation but I see it that we live different lives and learn lessons we didn't learn in previous lives!

Funny because my cousin and i were only just talking about the past last night and she said she wouldn`t have my past for all the tea in china.

If funny how others see things differently to you.

Our past is what makes us who we are today..............I wouldn't change anything, even the pain of losing loved ones was when it was their time to die.

Can I take retrospect with me and do things a little differently?

There are loads of things I would like to relive, and a few I wouldn't!

I would do it all again if it meant being where I am now - in a good relationship with a lovely bloke

A nice place to visit but would you want to live there?

Feeling very nostalgic tonight but I also realised that even tho my memories are nice ones tonight, I wouldn't want to do my past all over again!!

Would you?
