I just finished watching a movie called “About Time.” It is telling the story of a family whose men can travel back in time. Particularly about a guy who travels in time to the past to fix little mistakes so that he finds love. He eventually does meet the love of his life, marries her and the movie ends with a happy couple with three kids.
Do I want to do that; travel back in time, fix a couple of mistakes, avoid certain people, take back words I said that hurt others, live days differently? There are certain things I wish I’d change but then I wouldn’t be who I am now, right? Deeds, good and bad, shape who we are. I know I am the farthest from being a really good person and that right now I can be probably the worst version of myself but … I’m me, you know. I am me… with all the scars, black spots, sparkling eyes and smile. I’d rather take it from the “present” not the “past.” I’d rather make amends from where I stand now. I am okay with a linear time… no backward or forward travelling.
Just a little piece of advice to you, Maya; make the present matter… don’t waste moments without feeling and appreciating every single one of them. Don’t live… be alive.
