What if you were granted the power to freeze time – to simply stop the clock at the moment you felt that your life was perfect?
Things would never get worse.
However, they would never get better.
When I was a kid, I used to pretend that I had this special power.
But, no matter how perfect I felt my life was, I was never able to bring myself to stop the clock.
Nor did I ever regret not stopping the clock – even when things did not go as well as I had expected.
I discovered that while certain things may seem worse, there were so many more things that were better.
The future always seemed to have a way of unleashing a new perfect.
It made me realize that perfection is only relative to a moment.
Anytime I catch myself regretting a decision, I ask myself, “would you go back and freeze time if you could?”
The answer is always a resounding NO.
