I have spent a lot of time thinking about the “what if’s” in life. Probably too much time. With each challenge life has brought I have wondered “what if.”
What if my daughter didn’t have to struggle with autism?
What if all three of my triplets survived?
What if my pregnancies were easy and full term? Would I have ten children by now?
All of my what if-ing has always led me to one question…
If I could go back in time would I change anything? Would I do anything differently?
I think that is why, even though I prefer a good book to a movie any day, I cannot wait to see the movie “About Time” when it comes out in a few weeks.
The trailer gave me goosebumps on top of goosebumps as I caught a glimpse of this beautifully crafted story with the underlying theme of the tug of war so many of us have with life.
Even though things don’t always turn out just as we want them to would we go back and change them? Would we wish for a different outcome?
I can’t wait to follow the journey of Tim Lake (played by Domhnall Gleeson) as he goes back in time to try to craft the perfect life for himself. I don’t know the ending but I have a feeling he will discover the same thing that the trials in my life have taught me: no matter how difficult the story is to live, I wouldn’t trade the journey for anything.
You can view the trailer for “About Time” here and follow all the buzz surrounding this soon-to-be released film on Twitter and on Facebook. You can also meet me at the theater November 1, 2013 for the premiere (starts everywhere November 8), I’ll be the one with a bucket of popcorn and a carton of Kleenex.
