I tend to not slow down when I feel bad - my husband usually talks me into bed and says that I should time travel until I feel better. It's a cute way to say rest.

I like this concept. Maybe I should get off of reddit.

I have a morning ritual that I need to share. I call it "the terminator". First I crouch down in the shower in the classic "naked terminator traveling through time" pose. With my eyes closed I crouch there for a minute, visualizing either Arnold or the guy from the second movie (not the chick in the third one because that one sucked) and I start to hum the terminator theme. Then I slowly rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me to proceed through my day as an emotionless, cyborg badass. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It ruins the fantasy.

Well, when you view yourself as a time-traveler, you become acutely aware that every decision you make today will shape your future. This mindset can give you the motivation and inspiration to make good choices that align with your goals and aspirations. So you can actively shape your future instead of just passively letting it happen to you.

Of course, you're right. It's just a different perspective that can help you focus on the impact of your decisions. But ultimately, it's about being mindful and intentional with your choices, whether you view yourself as a time traveler or not. The important thing is to understand the power you have in shaping your future.

Going in to work, I always take the stairs instead of the elevator. I think to myself “someday I won’t be able to climb stairs, but I will wish that I could, so today I’m granting a wish for my future self”.

I don’t to spoiler it…but there is a very wholesome movie with this conclusion.

I’ve always said this, but never so eloquently. Thank you!

I think what we have at the present /current will have something to do with our future because we’re getting there. : )

I sometimes say this to myself - imagine you are 80 years old, looking back at your life and wishing you got to redo it.

Suddenly your wish is granted and you are back in time. Now, open your eyes and fix that which your old self regrets.

Any time I get tired or annoyed with my wife, or friends, or dogs…I imagine a future where I’ve lost them to some horrible accident or doggy old age.

How would I want to treat them if I knew our time together was so limited and precious?

With that knowledge, how would I treat the people I care about?

It really transforms how you treat the people around you, and you realize it only takes a little additional effort to make your wife breakfast for instance, or rub her feet for 5 minutes and talk about her day.

Plus, my dogs get a lot of treats and walks.

I just never want to look back and regret wasting that time, or realize I treated people badly when I could have been kind, or take any of it for granted.

Another way to look or approach this is to envision your future self ( next best version) has come back to help you tweak a small aspect or thing along the time continum that will help you get the best outcome ( Desired outcome) your aiming for or a happier today / life.

Watch Scott Bakula in Quantum Leap, old TV show.. He jumps thru time and becomes that person and has to help them change history for their better. P. S I have no idea if this year's 2023 reboot on the show is any good.

Imagine Scott Bakula is YOU, he's beside you whispering into your ear guiding you :)

Hugs 🤗 internet friend. It does me too. My new mantra is overly simple. I keep repeating to myself PUSH PUSH PUSH. PUSH to be active because that is what lifts the blues temporarily. It can last all day or only a few hours. Active can be reading on the terrace, going to the gym, taking a shower. Anything to disrupt the settling darkness. (Of course meds, too.)

I love, love time travel and generally temporal theories and ideas. But I never once thought of it like this. Thank you. Going to work on that smoking habit.

If you are a time traveller you want to be cautious because you don't want to create a world you are unfamiliar with but as I'm not familiar with not because I think I might accidentally cause world war 3 or invent nuclear fusion. This subreddit is nothing but platitudes.

I think this is a lot closer to what karma means than the "what goes around comes around" way most people tend to think about it.

i was afraid you would say that. i know it’s the right thing to do. i know that i need to just ~do~ the thing and all the things. it’s just not always that easy. but i will take this to heart and muster up whatever it takes to get shit done. thank you. thank you so much. 💛💛
