Turning Back Time

“The past is unchangeable, but the future is unwritten.”
-Jenna Petersen

Have you ever regretted something that should’ve or shouldn’t have been done in the first place? Have you ever thought of turning back time to fix your mistake? Have you ever done something and later on realize what you did was a big mistake? Have you ever had a lot of regrets and you don’t know what to do? Have you ever tried to move on from those regrets? I bet those are some questions you have in mind.

A lot of people say the only ways to turn back time are the music you grew up with and the old pictures of yours. But when it comes to real-life situations, it’s not the case. If only time travel is possible, then it would’ve been easier to go back in time to fix your mistakes. That would probably be the only way to prevent yourself from regretting something. However, it’s impossible since there’s no machine which can let you travel back. It kinda reminds me of the DeLorean in Back To The Future.

If you were to do it all over again, would you change a thing?

Here are a few examples. You took a course, but later lost interest in it & realized that you should’ve taken an easier course or a course you’re more interested in. You broke up with your girlfriend because of complicated problems, but later realized that you should’ve fixed that relationship & kept it from falling apart. These are the time where you’d think of turning back time.

Time is constant. Once you’ve done something, you can’t change it, whether you regretted it or not. You still have the chance to fix that mistake since it’s never too late. However, you’ll face some consequences. It may not be that easy, it may take a long time and you may not get the results you expected.

If you wanna go back in time, how far would you go?

Here are my Top 5 tracks about turning back time:

  1. Eddie Money – I Wanna Go Back
  2. Cher – If I Could Turn Back Time
  3. Kenny Rankin – Regrets
  4. Aqua – Turn Back Time
  5. R. Kelly – If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time

Writer’s note: I was supposed to call this post Regrets, but I find it too sad for it to be a title.
