a question for you:

Just out of curiosity: If you could re-live one year of your life, which year would you pick?
Why? Is it because of who you were, who you spent time with, what you did?

I think it would be 2009 because so many great and exciting things happened then. I met my boyfriend, flew to a one month adventure holiday with him, finished school, began to study at university, met a lot of interesting new people/friends..

But actually, I'm pretty happy now as well :)

i'd re-live 2011..because this year i moved to the US, got married, became a wife, became a permanent resident of Cali, had the chance to travel and see so many changes in myself / my life.. this is the year when God finally turned His eyes to me and answered our long time prayer(s)!

@SweetWhat a great answer (and what a great year!) -- And to think, it's not even over yet :)

This has to be by far the best question I have gotten to answer on your blog.

Let's see, I would want to re-live my senior year of high school. That year lasted from August 2004 to May of 2005. I was 30+ pounds lighter, the school's Homecoming Queen, a winner in the local Beauty and Beau Pageant, had 2 boyfriends (not at the same time, haha), a captain on the dance team, and vice-president of the FBLA club. I could go on and on, but let's just say that year was filled with the fullest of sweet happy memories, and isn't that what everyone wants to go back to? :)

Thanks for this post. It was nice to remember.

i would respend 2009. it has always been my favorite year. i truly came out of my shell and started to figure out who i was and what made me happy in life. i spent time with amazing people, did things i never though i would/could do and dated some amazing men who changed my life and expectations of dating forever.

how about you?

I would redo last year; my freshman year. I'd tell those people goodbye for the last time, and hold them closer before I would never see them again. I'd avoid those dumb mistakes I made. And I'd also date my current boyfriend from the beginning of the year, instead of in October.

2010 was by far the best and worst year of my life. I learned many lessons, and was hurt by a few people who I held close to my heart. So many things have changed since then, and I thought I would have never have said this but I am so thankful for all those occurrences, I feel like they helped me to get to know myself better and to create the perfect relationship with myself (that relationship I was actually looking outside, in the external world).

I don't know if I would redo a year, I don't think honestly I want to repeat a year I have lived, but this 2011 was a year of concious personal transformations, the ones that I never did, the ones that are voluntary and with that sense of self construction that brings so much satisfaction, you know? I have a boyfriend with whom I'm building a healthy relation after a few horrible heartbreaks, I have two jobs I like and in witch I feel useful, I can travel to see my BFF and I'm growing, feeling, thinking, finding my place in the universe. So, in a nutshell, I wouldn't repeat but this year was AMAZYNG!!! :)

you know, if I had to choose it would be 2010. that was the year I moved across Australia on my own for no reason other than the desire to prove I could. that was also the year I moved back home after realising I was in love with my best friend. we started dating when I got back and we've been together ever since :) that year was full of adventure, self-discovery, excitement, hope, laughter, tears... and all the beauty that goes along with new love!

that's not to say we're not incredibly happy now of course!

I would relive the summer of 2005 into the summer of 2006. My bf of almost 3 years broke up with me and not only did he break my heart but he took any feelings of self worth I had with him. He criticized everything about me and my life and made me feel like I had nothing to offer anyone. It took a few months of less than stellar behavior on my part for me to realize he was wrong. I liked who I was and there was nothing I needed to change. I truly believe you cannot have the most filling relationship unless you love and appreciate yourself as much as you love the person you are with. It took some soul searching to remember who I was and everything I liked about myself but when I did I not only had a great relationship with myself but into the new year I met a man who eventually became my husband and has never once asked me to change. That summer was hard but I needed that. It's not always good memories that define our life but the ones we have to learn.
