I know plenty of you have thought of this before, but seeing movies like “17 Again” and “Hot Tub Time Machine” made me think…if you could go back in time, of course with the knowledge you have now, what point in time would you rewind to? Junior high? Elementary school? Last week?

I would probably go back to yesterday, get online get the winning lotto numbers and make some quick cash.  Any earlier date would just be too tempting, and I would alter too many occurrences in life offsetting the butterfly effect.

Not that it wouldn’t cross my mind to go back to that goofy kid that got cut from JV basketball freshman year and insert a much better jumpshot and courage…or go back to 5th grade and tell my mother, “I love Mike but nah I’m cool on the S-curl thing” or maybe find a young Lebron James in Ohio and befriend him and tell him he could be somebody one day, “remember who told you that ‘Bron.”

Then the ideas pop in the brain about the genius creations that I would introduce before they were actually invented (with a twist), such as or I would do but I think some folks would think I’m the CEO of and…oh never mind.

Anyway, my fortune would be accompanied by a bad Hollywood attitude, friends I don’t know, women I don’t trust and me wishing I could go back in time and have a regular life, a family and maybe some hard times so I could appreciate the money that I now have.

You know what I mean, and if you don’t and you’re confused, don’t be alarmed…I had a point but I lost it, oh yeah… We as adults; were only impressionable children for a few years of our lives, yet all our internal makeup stems from childhood. Your fears, likes, dislikes, anything deep you can think of derives from you being a kid and those issues help shape who you are today:

No love from your father – Daddy issues. Women subconsciously hate men and have fear of abandonment, Men subconsciously blame their mother, hate women and thirst for attention = life sucks.

Of course there are exceptions to this but either way, there’s something about being 6 or 7 years old and having a memory about an event that lasts forever.

There’s a joy in your heart when you think of the toys you played with or cartoons you watched.
Your ideas about church, your connection to fast food restaurants, fragrances, encounters with other ethnicities, not only come from TV but also experiences around us and it begins before the teenage years.

With that said, many of us need therapy…but most of us can’t afford it. And we really know therapy is just someone asking you to identify instances in your life and then figuring out the reasons for your actions by eventually answering your own questions.

To understand what a therapist does, you would have to break the word “therapist” into 2 words.

“Thera” and “pist.”

What 2 were you thinking? You’re sick. You DO need help.

So I have decided to simply play my own therapist and ask myself in my head, “What would therapist guy say?” It has truly helped me with my daily dumb decisions and finding their motivation. I would go into further detail about these therapy sessions but they are between me and him or he and I, or whatever.

Nuts, maybe I am, but this may help you as well. Still in that treadmill relationship? Can’t seem to stop procrastinating? Overeating but not over hungry? Punishing those around you because of something someone else somewhere did to you and you still can’t get over it so you project that pain in the workplace, home and anywhere humans exist? Well then maybe you should conference with someone… on the inside. And maybe until you get it right you should stay…on the inside.

Some of you already do it, except you talk to yourself, or the Creator, or a passed on love one or your imaginary friend from childhood but whoever it is, this can assist you in your day to day ongoings. If it doesn’t work, go to and post your question, then come back later and post your answer…what do I look like? A therapist? I have my own issues.

You made it this far, might as well leave a comment, it makes a difference…
