"Every person, all the events of your life are there because you have drawn them there. What you choose to do with them is up to you." - Richard Bach
I have no regrets but I do sometimes wonder what my life would be like if I had made different decisions along the way. Life is funny like that. Sometimes those pivotal moments smack you in the face with a neon sign that reads “crossroads”. You know that your life will forever take a different course thereafter.
Sometimes the big stuff is disguised as small stuff leading to circumstances more profound. These are the small decisions we make and actions we take everyday. What time to go to work, how to get there, who we speak to…Just think of all those people who should have been in the Twin Towers on 9-11 but may have just been late for work.
It’s probably good we can’t project the domino of outcomes that will result from any one decision. But one thing is for sure…we certainly don’t have the control that we think.
So, having said that, embrace today. Live in the moment.
Don’t worry about the possibilities. It never turns out quite like you expect anyway.
