I was playing the “Would You Rather” game one day by myself – yes, I do that when I’m bored sometimes! LOL – and came to a question I’d love to hear how’d you answer.
FYI – Would You Rather is just a game where you ask yourself a question which usually causes you to think real hard before answering and you can only choose one answer. As a matter of fact, there’s an account on Google Plus called Would You Rather that asks questions on a daily basis and the questions get REAL tough. I end up stumped and just hope I never end up in situations where I’d ever have to choose!
So the question is…… *drum roll*……..
Which would you rather do if given the opportunity:
a) Travel backwards in time 10 years to change one thing or b) Take a gander at your life 10 years into the future?
You can only answer one or the other. Yes, I’ve read Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now, and absolutely love it! It’s one of my favorites but this exercise isn’t about living in the now. This is purely for philosophical fun!
What would I do? Hmmm, I dunno!! If I go back in time to change one thing and then pop back to the present, where would I be? *shrugs*
If I take a peek at where/who I am 10 years from now and don’t like what I see, I’m naturally gonna attempt to make some changes but who’s to say that the changes I make aren’t the ones that lead me exactly down that path I didn’t like!?!?
Final answer…..I think I’d go backwards because looking ahead at the future doesn’t give me a warm and fuzzy. I guess I like the idea of having something to look forward to
What Say You?
Okay, so what is your response? This should be interesting!
