any ramadan day from my childhood. i cannot express enough how much i miss having family around, having my mother around, cousins, aunts, helpers. the delicious food, the daily series in the background, the kids laughing and running around secluded from the elders, the giggles and late nights. i miss it all way too much. i would do anything to relive it just one more time.
i spoke too soon. i just relieved a full 3 days of this, except the mother and ramadan part, but for the wrong reason. i would do anything right now to go back to the day i posted that and be grateful for what i had. one day after posting that, my uncle passed away at 3 am of jan 29th, 2022. and indeed, everything i had described was relived, but i fucking hated it. so much. i miss him, this doesn’t feel real at all.
There are more than one. Anytime I made a mistake and took the wrong road, which was more than once. I did not have a toolbox to draw from when I was younger, and made many glaring mistakes to the detriment of many. I regret them deeply, and try my best to live differently now.
I really wouldn’t want to. It would kill the beauty of whatever day I chose. Also would I be reliving the actual day or my memory of the actual day? Both diverge sharply over time.
This is a difficult question. There are many memorable days that I would like to relive. The one that sticks out the most is the birth of my first child. I remember every detail of the whole day all the way up to when she was born at 11:20p.m. I also realize that I should live every day like it needs to be one I would like to re-live. I go about days just routinely and often times don’t even recall things from the day. I would like to make some part of each day memorable and important.
I do not know how to answer this without selling an experience or other peeps short. Pulling weeds with my Mom, quiet time, so funny, she had a dry sense of humor and was hilarious when you least expected, With all her imperfections I felt a lot of gentle love around her, for everyone, not just me.
I love the word for the day on this site, Don’t wait until you have no more suffering.
Me having a day where I suffered beyond what I thought was my endurance, and saying out loud, I am going to be happy, and that is what happened. Amazing turning point that enriched my life.
At the top of the list is meeting my partner, growing pains, but I get him and he gets me, in all our wackiness and deep sincerity. A very kind and patient man and I get to learn how to do that myself. We support each other. He makes me laugh and I get to give that back.I had a wonderful enlightening day yesterday, felt so rich and present, grateful and happy.
Today I am forced to stay in bed, I do not like it at all. But it is okay, I am learning to let someone help me, it is hard for me.
I love the saying don’t look for me in the past, I do not live there anymore. I am grateful for each and every day. 😏💖👸
There are many sweet-fragrant-memory-days that I can revisit whenever I choose. But right now, I am happy being right where I am.
A day with my father any day♥️🥺
Could not do it with just ONE day…..so- I guess I’m grateful for where I am now & want to keep growing forward. As a person, I know I will make mistakes, but- hopefully they will be new mistakes that I can learn from [rather than] being caught in the ‘hamster-wheel/habitrail’ of the past.
Can I live several days over, when I failed to give my child the support they needed?
My mind and thought went here also. Grateful, though, for messy reconciliations. Shalom to you and yours.
Thank you, Shamburn – at least I can now give them uncritical love and support. Am grateful to have [finally!] reached this stage. Shalom to you and yours, too –
Any day I have laughed with friends, even for a few moments.
A walk in the woods, sitting for lunch with my family, a moment to reflect upon my memories, listening to the music I like most, watering the garden, writing a gratitude message for beloved people in my life, and a prayer for the world. 24 hours to touch my sould.
Wow, this is a tough question – as all things evolve….
I would say my wedding day – but my children weren’t around yet…
Or the birth of one child – but the other children weren’t there
Or a picnic when the kids were small – but then I wouldn’t get the laughter and personality that I get now…
Perhaps the answer to this question is – I wouldn’t want to live one day over because as thing evolve – new and equally positive things can happen.
Love this answer.
I don’t remember the exact calendar day it was,
but it was in the beginning of May, 1970 on the coast of Maine
about two weeks after my firstborn son died suddenly.
I was sitting on a hill looking over what used to be called Herring Gut;
it was early morning and the air was crisp and fresh.
It was there that I had a profound epiphany . . .
that we don’t disappear when we die,
or go to heaven.
the way our earthly body does,
and become part of a greater Whole.
And it changed my life forever . . .
Sparrow, thank you for this beautiful reflection
Thank you for caring,
I’ve had some great surf in other areas that would be fun to do over… but really I’d just like to go to those places again and have new experiences! I don’t really want to go back in time, but if I could live ONE day over, it would be my wedding day, March 20, 2021. It was a beautiful, perfect day.
I would not want to live one day over as each day “happens” for a reason and has been my life, my story.
