Just One Of Those Life Changing Moments (Sponsored)

This November, the creator of Love Actually returns with his most personal and memorable film of all, About Time.


By Sheila Arkee

The other day I was looking at my son Andre, in the middle of some kind mischief, and thinking about how crazy it is to think he hasn’t been in my life forever. It kind of seems that way – how can I imagine life without my constant sidekick of the past six years?

The moment I met my son was the most amazing moment of my life. After carrying him, a difficult labor, birthing him via c-section, then hearing his tiny cry, he was finally placed on my chest for a few sweet moments. I’ll never forget the awe and wonder of looking at his little face for the first time, stroking his cheek and feeling his downy soft skin. That little being that had lived inside of me for so long was by my side. Our first meeting was short and sweet – got to spend just a few moments with this literal bundle before he was whisked away for tests. How I wish I could go back and relieve that life-changing moment over, and over again.

About Time

About Time – A film from Richard Curtis, the creator of Love Actually, Notting Hill, and Four Weddings and a Funeral, is all about that kind of a wish. At age 21 Tim Lake finds out that he has inherited the ability to live life over and over again. He meets Mary, falls in love at first sight, and uses his ability to shape their encounters into perfection. But instead of making every moment perfect, he learns that life and love are most extraordinary when you embrace all of their imperfections.

Just like the way Tim felt when he first met Mary and knew he’d met the woman of his dreams, I wish I could relive that moment that changed my life forever – wouldn’t it be great to feel those feelings of joy and wonder all over again?  Critics are already calling About Time “the first must-see movie of the fall” and “easily the most heartwarming, feel-great film of the season.” It’s out in theaters on 11-8-13 and to get your sneak peek of this film featuring Rachel McAdams, check out the trailer!

Do you have a time in your life you’d like to live over and over again?

    I love this! The first moments between a mother and child are so beautiful! I’ve had many great moments but of all of them I’d relive my 16th birthday and wouldn’t change a single thing about! :)

    My kids definitely changed my life. I wouldn’t mind a do over of my wedding. That day was such a blur that I forgot most of what happened!

    Having kids is the most amazing experience… though very tiring, I’d love to be able to experience the first time I was able to hold my babies (not so much babies anymore!) over and over again!

    I LOVE childbirth stories – one of the most emotionally draining yet fulfilling moments of my life.

    Such a sweet story! I still say there’s nothing in the world like that feeling when the baby first comes out and you meet him/her for the first time. It’s magic.
