    If I could time travel I would go back to my wedding day in St. Thomas. It was filled with so much drama by G’s family.. From the numerous phone calls asking us to delay the wedding because they decided to change their flight and arrive the day of the wedding instead of the day before to showing up at the wedding and changing clothes on the beach, to wanting to change hotels and stay with us after the wedding, the drama was too much for me. I wanted the day to be a celebration of my husband and I in a beautiful place and instead it’s tainted with memories of negative drama.

      Oh my gosh just wow! Do you have at least one memory that isn’t chaos and movie worthy? I think you should turn your life into a book… I hate to say it but it’s so entertaining! 🙈

        Oh my yes! I have lots of wonderful memories of traveling to Costa Rica and Norway and time spent at my grandmother’s house both as a child and adult 😊❤🤗 I just wouldn’t travel back in time to those events because I wouldn’t want to change anything about them. I have been told my life events could be made into a book or movie MANY TIMES because they are so entertaining 😄 That’s part of the reason I started this blog 🙂

    Love this post! I have three times I would return to: 1. My daughter’s first few months. Her birth was very traumatic and I was super stressed and scared for at least the first six months of her life. I want a do-over, knowing as I do now that everything turns out okay! 2. A dear friend died last year, and I would go back to right before her death and visit her in the hospital. We had been talking about me coming to visit her after she got her transplant, which made sense at the time. But if I could do it again, I’d go see her immediately. 3. A happy one to revisit: the ten-year anniversary trip my husband and I went on. It was so wonderful! I would do it again exactly as it happened!

      Thanks so much for reading and sharing Suzanne! I’m sorry about the traumatic experiences… I can only imagine just how terrible each of them felt! The great thing about you daughter is that you have the rest of your life to make new memories~ but a time machine would be very nice!

    If I could go back in time, I will go back to 2015. It was just after high school and I felt really confident in myself and my abilities. Not that I don’t anymore, I lost it at a point and I have been building it back ever since. I wish I went to a different university far from home, to discover myself. Thankful that I’m doing that now and not later. Thanks for your post. It brought back good memories

    Very intriguing post, Shelly! If I could travel back in time, I’d choose the years my father was alive. I would spend more time with him, explore new things and ask a lot of questions. I’d also love to go back to the days when I first met my hubby at 16. I would rethink A LOT of those decisions we made. I’d slow down and enjoy each moment a lot more and take my time to grow up! 🤗

    As much as I enjoyed 12 Monkeys and the challenges of splintering, the Tardis has always been my time travel vehicle of choice 😊

    Thank you for sharing your key memories and insights. I can certainly appreciate wanting to see if there is a way to influence a different outcome.

    In terms of myself, I am happy enough not to go back into my own past. The key moments in my life, both good and bad, are exactly where they need to be. However, I would like the opportunity to explore history (including my family tree) and to see what the future holds.

    Time travel is surely a dream. We miss our childhood and many beautiful things that has shaped us for what we are today. Your article has really sparked the moment when we sit and look back in life with nostalgia overwhelming us. I guess, looking back and thanking all that has contributed to us is really something worth doing.

    Taking lessons from the past has shaped us and made us what we are today. For you, what started as a movie genre, took you too beautiful journey to re-explore your memories in the past. Really a very creative thing indeed. I like the way you connect certain things in life to the personal aspect of humans. Really appreciative of your post.
