What if you made a left turn instead of a right? What if you woke up late and missed your train? These are simple everyday choices that we make that can affect our lives, but what about the bigger decisions…..where to live, work, go to school, to get married, have kids, etc.; Do these choices lead us to where we are today or are we predestined to end up where we belong?
I believe that our lives as they are today come from a combination of circumstances we can’t control and the choices we make everyday. I do not believe we are predestined to end up where we belong because that would mean our choices mean nothing and that no matter what we do in the end we still would end up in the same place.
Do you ever think what if? What if I went away to school instead of living at home, what if I never met my husband, what if people didn’t leave us, what if?? There are moments I think what if, what if I chose differently or what if my childhood had been perfect, where would I be now? The answer to that question is, I don’t know and I’m not sure I want to know because it might mean that I would not have my 2 beautiful girls and my husband, so although sometimes I think, what if, I’m not really sure I want to know the answer.
I happen to like the person I am today, would I like to change some things, sure who doesn’t, but for the most part the life I have created from the hand I was dealt and through the choices I have made is a wonderful one.
Do you ever think what if? Do you think our choices lead us to where we are today or do you believe we are destined to end up where we belong?
