Sometimes I wonder if an alternate reality exists. A place where one different choice in our lives was made that had implications that completely changed the reality that we are now aware of. Do you remember those moments where you hit those crossroads in life and had to make a decision without knowing where the path you have chosen would take you? Don’t you ever wonder how life would of turned out if you had just picked the other path. Would you be happier, sadder, or even alive still?
We make choices every single day. The choice of going up to someone and talking to them could be the difference of meeting a life long friend to just seeing another stranger. The decision of taking the short cut home compared to the long way could be the difference of having an unforgettable experience to having just another day. Even that choice of appreciating every moment can alter the level of happiness you have.
Every choice we make affects us and everyone around us. Our choices defines who we are, who we become, and how we feel about ourselves and our surroundings. I can’t help but wonder if there are realities in which different choices were made; where my world would be completely different than it is right now.
