The Adult Do-Over
A Blog by FOX 4’s Kim Byrnes:
Do you remember playing games as a kid? You know, games like ghost in the graveyard, statue-maker and kick-the-can. Well, in my neighborhood it never failed that one kid would always at some point yell “Do-over!” We usually balked, but in the end we did it over. Just like that, we started fresh.
What if we could have an adult do-over? Would you yell it out at the top of your lungs? What would you change? Or, do all the things that have happened in our lives, the good, the bad and the ugly, make us who we are? I think they do. While there are certainly things I’d change and do differently, I don’t think I want to do anything over completely. While tempting, without the mistakes, there would be no lessons learned. I guess we need the valleys to appreciate the peaks, but sometimes I admit, it sure would be nice to yell “Do over” and get to try it all again.
