What if?

 

What if the world would end tomorrow, would it make you change the way you live today? What if you have chosen the wrong career in your life, would you do something to change it? What if one day you wake up and realize the amount of things you have been missing in your life, would you freak out or would you calmly make a list and make a change? What if the person you tell all your secrets to has decided to turn your life into an open book, would you take revenge? What if a decision you took in anger makes you realize the next day that it was unbelivably wrong, would you repent? What if you fall in love with two people at the same time, could you make the right decision? What if a decision you made a long time ago is haunting you, could you be able to escape your past? What if you don’t know what you want in life, could you take the time and really think it through? What if … What if … what if?
What a horrible question isn’t it? What if?
On the other hand, life is a series of events and a series of decisions. Decisions, decisions, decisions!! Too many decisions. I think this is why I miss being a child. Because when we were young the decisions were made for us. The ironic part is that at that age we used to hate having to oblige to “the adults’ decisions”, and now, being faced with those decisions I find it comforting to think that atleast for about 15 years the decisions were not made by me. So this means my decisions have gradually started for the last 5 years? Slowly but surely the “freedom of choice” grew with the years, and I am starting to wonder, if I am complaining after only 5 years what will happen after 20 or 30 years? Hopefully, with maturity choices will be made much easier. I think that questioning one’s decisions is perfectly normal so that we don’t do everything on a whim. 
The key to everything is to ask “What if?” before a decision and not after!
