What would I do if I knew I could not fail?
For of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: “It might have been!”I refuse to say “it might have been!” I fully intend to look back, smile, and I have fought the good fight, I have run the race to win.
I have dedicated my life to the study of science. It’s time I made use of it. I have done what Sir Isaac Newton did – recognize the obvious. Scientist laughingly call time a dimension and yet they say you can’t travel backwards through it. I don’t have the heart to tell them how wrong they are. I have put every fiber of my being into the study of time and trans-dimensional travel. I did not mind sacrificing everything to achieve my goal. You see, I knew I couldn’t fail. Going back in time is as easy as walking through a door if one knows where the door is and how to walk.
I’m going to step through that door now and visit myself when I was young and optimistic. I’m going to tell me how my life ended up. I’m going to teach all those things I now know which I wish I would have known then. It’s said that if one wants to make the world a better place, they should let the change begin with them. I think they’re right so I’m going to go back and change me. Most importantly, I’m going to teach me that at the end of our lives we regret the things we did not do, more than we regret the things we did do.
