Sometimes I wonder what's in store for me in 5 years time. I saw this family at the chapel the other day together with their two kids a girl who's around 5 or 6 and a boy who looked much younger. With Jan 5 months pregnant right now, in 5 years time, we will be like that couple. Its something that I'm looking forward to and at times, I wish I'm living that future already.
In some ways, I can relate to the movie CLICK starring Adam Sandler. When Adam Sandler discovers the power of the remote, he used it to re-live the good times and fast forward thru the bad times in his life. In the end, he missed a lot of things that he should have experienced if he didn't use the time-traveling-universal-remote. Its a good thing that he was given a second chance.
Sometimes I wish that I could just coast thru life, especially during trying times. Sometimes, I wish that time would stand still so that I can enjoy a particular happy moment. But time does move on and everything moves along with it. More often than not, I'd look back at my past problems and remember how hard those times were for me and just laugh about it. I also reminisce about all the good times and just feel great about them.
Unlike Adam Sandler's character, we don't get second chances and we only live once. Good times, bad times, we all have to live through it. What we make out of these experiences is what really matters.
For now, I'll just sit back and enjoy the ride and when the time comes, I'll laugh about writing this post hehe.
