Groundhog day
In the comedy “Groundhog Day” Bill Murray experienced
the same day again and again, stuck in a time loop until he
got the day “right.” What day would you choose to repeat
until you got it right? Do you think it’s ever possible to get
life “right”?

I really can’t say there is a day I would do over to get it right. I have had some bad days, good days, sad days, happy days and everything in between but each day and experience added to who I am today. I think each moment good or bad has its place and everything that happens in your day is “right” it is what is supposed to happen, the good, the bad and the ugly. I think of bad choices I made in my youth but without them I wouldn’t have experiences that have helped others or empathy for people in bad situations. No matter what we do, we aren’t going to be perfect so we just need to live life the best we can and learn lessons from the moments that are less than desirable. And honestly I don’t know if I would want to feel the pain from the past again so reliving the day would do more harm than good in my opinion. I have accepted the moment, took what I needed from it, and moved on.
