Pick one day to repeat for the rest of your life

Imagine that you're living the movie Groundhog Day. What kind of day would you want to repeat?

1. You will repeat this day for the rest of your life. Be wary of any strenuous situations you may not want to repeat, such as long drives, air travel, etc.

2. When you awaken the next day, you have no recollection of the previous(same) day. Plans you make will amount to nothing(see rule #1).

3. There is no context for anything. Christmas every day would get boring, graduations would be anti-climactic, etc.

I'd advise against, say, the birth of a child; if you're the mother, well, I don't have to tell you, and if you're the father, you won't really know the kid.

There is no perfect day, for me at least. I couldn't think of one that would involve all of my grandparents, for instance.

My pick would be an average weekend day while I was still living at home. Both of my parents are still alive, and my brother is there, too. We get up and have a great breakfast. Later, our mutual friend comes over(we're in a band together), and we rehearse songs to play, some written by us, some covers. Then, we all have dinner until practice is over and we all watch TV afterward. Simple, and encompasses a lot of what I miss.

I'm very interested in responses.

The day after my youngest was born. After having miscarriages and a high risk pregnancy, holding him for hours was magical!

@Handfull1 That sounds just like my mother. After seven miscarriages and a daughter who died three days after birth my mom was determined to have a living child. The doctors warned her against it, but she did it anyway. It was so hard on her that after I was born she had to spend a month in the hospital. One of her sisters came down to take care of me until she was able to come home.

@Musicman God bless your Mom. You were a miracle baby!
Musicman · 61-69, M
@Handfull1 Yes I was. I was her pride and joy for sure. We had a fabulous relationship. I cried when she passed. That actually shocked my dad.

Probably the recent day I took my kids to the carnival… they just were in awe and so was I watching them. I would love to pause time for a while at their current ages. Time goes by so quickly

@WaryWitchWandering there's a carnival in town that I kinda want to go to.
Used to go to them as a kid.
I maybe only ride 2 rides max, but it was still fun.
I like the twinkling lights and people who are having fun

The day I was introduced to Sasha in the hospital, went outside with her for the first time and actually felt safe.

Our wedding night. I had waited so long for that night, and it did not disappoint in any way. I have never felt so in love or loved.

There is one woman I shared a night with. I would relive that day over and over. Each day I would tell her new things and ask her new questions. I think it would be amazing.

I love the last paragraph.
We can really miss the simple, beautiful things in life by chasing bigger moments.

I don't really have an answer.
Maybe some days from my childhood, like field day or maybe a day in the future...a great date and fall on love and get all mushy inside.

Guess I did have an answer

Honestly any day from my first year of high school. It was the happiest school year I've ever experienced. Just me and the friends that I still have nowadays who've helped and watched me grow and become a better version of myself.

We were just so young before, not worrying about anything and just enjoying the 7am to 2pm classes we have every weekday. I'd do anything to go back to those moments and be a carefree teenager again who sees life as something that is so bright.

In the movie Groundhog Day, Bill Murray's character DOES remember the previous days. And eventually he starts to improve himself and help those around him. The point of being stuck in the Groundhog Loop is to give him time to reflect and then grow and become a better person.

My selection of days that I could improve and benefit others is rather personal.

That day I let myself be completely vulnerable with him
I have a day in mind. The 3 of us having a normal day out and coming home to the cat for cuddles.

Wouldn’t “for the rest of your life” be forever, since you’d just keep repeating the same day over and over, and not aging..?

@AbbySvenz Ko-rect. I suppose it's revocable upon request.
Valentine’s Day

Hmm I’d say the day I graduated high school
Musicman · 61-69, M
Probably the day we bought the motorhome. It was an awesome day and both my wife and I had an amazing day. 🤗
iamnikki · 31-35, F
@Musicman the day you bought it? Did you at least take it on a trip today you bought it?
Musicman · 61-69, M
@iamnikki No. We didn't even bring it home that day. My wife wanted the interior reupholstered and I wanted it fully serviced. It was a couple of weeks before we actually stayed in it. The dealer had a delivery lot. They spent an entire day teaching us how everything worked. They let us stay in the delivery lot for 10 days. They answered all of our questions and fixed a couple of small details that popped up. I still remember being terrified the first time I had to dump the tanks. Lol!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣😷
