Pause or Rewind?

You know what would be cool? If your life had  either a pause or rewind button! For all those times you wished you had done something different from what you ended up doing, fun memories you wish you could relive again, or for revisiting the past, there would be the rewind button in your life. Or how about those times you are having such a good day, you wish it would never end? Well, there’s the pause button! If you could have either a pause or rewind button for your life, which would you choose?

I would definitely choose the rewind button. After all, it could act as both, right? The rewind button would be so cool to have in life; you could undo some of the bad choices you made, go back to all the good times you spent with your friends and family, or relive a great day over again. I think it would be interesting to try out a rewind button, but then again, how would it have affected my life today? Would I be a different person if I had rewound my life every time I made a mistake? Yeah, probably.  For better or for worse, I would never know.

I’m sure there is a perfectly good reason our lives don’t have the same controls as a video does. Yeah, it would be cool to try, but if it changed my life from how it is now, I don’t think I’d want these buttons.
