Groundhog's Day

So I was sleeping through watching Groundhog's Day and Bill Murry says this somewhere near the middle of the film:

I was in the Virgin Islands once. I met a girl. We ate lobster, drank PiƱa Coladas. At sunset we made love like sea otters. That was a pretty good day. Why couldn't I get that day over and over and over?

Which set me to thinking, what day would I want to live over and over again? Phil (Bill Murry's character) thought of one of his best days, but got stuck with just a day that he believed was one of his worst. In the end, it made him a better man. He learned millions of lessons that taught him how to be the kind of person the woman he desired would want.

So the real question at the core of this is, what lessons do I need to learn to be the best person I can be?

So, if given my choice, I would choose from one of two time periods in my life. The first is when I was leaving for college and the months after I got there. I hurt someone I love very much and if given the chance, I would learn how to leave them with more grace. The second is from when my husband was leaving me. I didn't handle it well and I'd like to learn how to let him go with more love and compassion.

For me, these are two sides of the same lesson. Do everything in your life with love. If I could learn to do that, I think I would be the kind of person that would attract the person I desire.
