What if we could "PVR" our relationships?
Written by: Pillow Talk Gal
The other day I had a thought...what if we could use a PVR to manage our relationships.
What I mean by this is,
we could use all the features a PVR provides us with
but apply those features to our daily lives and relationships.
Here's a for instance, the moments that you just would rather forget (like the rude comment your significant other happened to make over breakfast that morning, or the terrible time you had on your date the night before) you could FWD (fast forward).
You could just zip through the bad moments like they never even happened and go on with your life.
Of course some would say this doesn’t solve anything but sometimes we just need to forget things and move on (a denial button is so much less appealing).
Then there are the times you want to relish and hold on to forever.
Your first date, first kiss or even the time your better half surprised you with a wonderful, romantic dinner out.
These would be the special moments you could either RWD (rewind) or PAUSE.
Who doesn’t want to remember the great stuff?
Next are those moments you never want to end...for those, you could press "record" and watch them over and over again.
There’s the first time you saw the love of your life, or the time you just fell asleep together watching a movie at his place.
Even the time your had the flu and he took care of you by making you soup and giving you your medicine.
Just press ‘’record’’ and relive those wonderful memories whenever you feel like it.
If we could PVR our relationships,
what happens the moment you've run out of memory and you need to start deleting things?
How do we decide what to delete and what to keep?
Sometimes by keeping certain memories alive we learn from our mistakes and make better choices in the future.
That’s a memory worth making room for;
it could come in handy at a later time.
That brings up another interesting feature....more memory (RAM).
Would this give us the unbelievable ability to remember all the good times, forget all the bad and delete the forgettable ones all together?
When things get a little crazy, there is also the possibility of having to reboot your PVR entirely...which can be scary but at the same time could provide the opportunity for a clean slate in life (romantic or otherwise).
Of course the rest of the time you could just let life cruise on "play" mode because you would know that if anything came up you have the nifty little features I mentioned, to do with as you please.
With all the advances in technology these days I can't help but wonder....how long until I can PVR my life?
