Fresh Starts

So about 2 months ago I completely deleted everything on my blog...and am now somewhat regretting this decision.

Sometimes it's just good to start over from scratch. We do it with homework, with blogs, baking, and so many other seemingly unimportant aspects of our lives. What about the so-called important ones? Like relationships.

Why can't we just say, "do over" and just return to that start of everything? We know exactly what we want to see happen, the mistakes we made, and what we'd do to fix them. Is it possible to find someone whose willing to completely forget and erase everything that happened in the past, say, six months, and go back to the beginning?

Life should have a 'delete' button. We could reach for it and go back as if it had never happened.

Unfortunatly, for now, we can't change what's already happened. It's done. You can only learn from what's already happened and try not to make the same mistakes the next time.

But what happens when things are changed, permenantly? To the relationship that may be doomed, can you simply say, "well, we just won't do things this way next time..."

Should I try this? Or aim for a "do over"?
