A ride

Going through our life is like a learner on his 1st driving lesson. Unpredictable jerky acceleration then slowing down when the road is clear.
We accelerated through childhood as we needed to be heard.
Breezed pass our teenage years cos' we need to be recognised
Then just as we pass this juncture and comfortable into middle age we contemplate on our past.
Wished we had savoured every bit of childhood.
Wished we had cherished those moments we spent with our now departed loved ones.
Reminsced on our carefree days of love and silly antics.
Remorsed on all those times we did not heed sound advise nor care to choose carefully at every junction of life.

Unfortunately there is no reverse gear in this gearbox of life.

Life is really too short for regrets, Liling. Yes, but we human juz can't help wondering the constant "what if" in our life, huh? But let's embrace the present, cherish the past, and look forward to the future!

What we need, of course, is a time machine to transport us back where we want to. Silly... stuff of science fiction. But it may happen one day!
