Today I turned 39. I was pondering of what to write on my 39th Birthday. I wanted to avoid the typical last year reflection, bla…. bla… bla… It is too cheesy.And then I found this writing about Life Restart Button.
I think, after 39 years of life in this world, I have so much things that I wanted to change, that I’m not really proud of. Things that, if I knew the future, I would certainly won’t do that things. Of course it is not fair, because nobody should be able to predict the future with 100% precision. Hence, the Life Restart Machine would sounds fair. You restart your life, with no knowledge of the future. And whatever you do will set you to a new future.
But, I don’t want to restart my life entirely. I don’t want to go back to my infancy, the time when I don’t even recall. So, a life reset machine sounds better for me. It has a keypad where you put the year to reset to, and when you are ready, push the big red button, and ZAP.
So, if the machine does exist, which year will I reset to? I have several years that I’m considering to reset to:
- My teenage year of high school. I always wanted to learn to play keyboard. So, if I can reset to these years, I will learn to play keyboard. Who knows that I would become a professional keyboard player, and become famous?
- The day I choose my major in college. This might not bring much changes, considering how much I despise economics. But, given the chance, there might be slim possibility that I will choose economics as my major. This should ideally followed by taking tax consultant exam, so at the and of the day, I would become a tax consultant. Tax is the 2nd thing that you can’t avoid in life other than death, right? So, a tax consultant might be equivalent to doctor here.
- The day I graduated. This also probably give little change, if any. I would started my own business early on, or work as professional instead of employee. I would grow and develop my network, and one day in this life, I would have my business running well enough that I don’t need to spend too much time in it, and can spend more time with my kids. This of course assuming that I will get married and have kids.
So now the cheesy part to close this post. I was happy on how the year past by, and wish myself a better health and life free of pain. Happy 39th Birthday.
