If you could enter a wayback machine and go back to your childhood, at what age would you like to meet you? 

What would you say?

And what would you hope to achieve?

    I would like to meet myself when I was 16 years old.

    I would tell myself not to fret about love because once day I would in fact meet the man of my dreams and live happily ever after.

    I would hope to save my former self from feelings of anxiety and inadequacy. I had an absentee father as a child and I think I spent a good deal of time looking for love in all the wrong places. I wish I could have known that it was all going to be ok.

    I’d like yo go back to about 12 when I ws beginning my long spiral downhill with drugs/alcohol…I have a face to face with myself about what the outcome would be further on in life and the many disappointments I would face. I would hold fast to my dreams and passions of art and horses and spend more time on horses instead of harleys, and more time drawing instead of doing drugs and partying. I would hope to have saved myself from myself and the mess I made of my teens, 20s and 30s. And hopefully I would listen and heed my advice…

      Very candid comments, thank you so much for your honesty.

      Personally, I think I would go back to about the age my oldest daughter is now, 10 years old…

      I would tell myself, “Dan, you are better, smarter, bigger, nicer, and handsomer than you think you are. And while you may think that everything has already been done before, your contributions to this world will be deeply appreciated by many people, even your own children. Forgive, be happy, live, stretch.”

    I would go back to 1974 and tell myself to watch out for my behavoirs and that the concequcences will be harsh. I probally wouldn’t listen Id’ probally ask myself wanna burn a dobbie? and I probally would. so maybe it would be best to leave the past where it is…..
