|Or do I?|
Apparently there are two ways to celebrate Do Over Day: make it a day to right a past "wrong" or make it a celebration of a past "right." In other words, if we can imagine the regrets we'd like to change about our past, maybe we could also acknowledge what we've done right and celebrate it again. For example, this could be an opportunity to mend some long overdue injustice or perhaps renew wedding vows. Therefore, there are two questions to be asked:
- What wrongdoings would you correct?
- Which of your best choices would you celebrate with a do over?
First, the wrongdoings. Hmm. What would I do over?
You might be thinking this means I have no regrets. Absolutely not true. I regret most things. Almost every day. I can't help it. I'm an anxious person. In fact, I regret what I ate for supper earlier this evening. The problem is that I'm hesitant to, you know, go there. In fact, I'm now regretting mentioning the entire thing.
*more crickets* *anxious face*
Uh, so then to avoid this awkwardness, what would I celebrate with a do over?
Maybe my kids' births? *remembering my wife repeatedly tearing the hair from my chest...the blood...a cream-cheese-like substance...cutting that mongo-huge umbilical cord* Nope.*stink eye face*
Yup. I guess this is why Do Over day died. Unless...here's a better idea: if there's more than one way to define Do Over Day, maybe there are three ways. That's why I am now pondering a list of regrets I would like OTHER PEOPLE to do over. *evil smile*
