Today’s Blogger Challenge topic is to share “Something You Always Think What If About.”
I really think that What If’s are a dangerous road to travel. I do try to live my days without regrets and I think that What If’s are a way of regretting decisions that you’ve made.
I am really looking forward to reading other bloggers’ responses to this question as I’m wondering if other people look at What If’s the same way that I do.
When thinking about this topic, I did think of a decision that I made a long time ago. It’s not a decision I regret, but just one that changed our lives and took us down the path we are on now.
When I was finishing up graduate school, I had begun to do some job searching. After being flown to Boston for some interviews, I was offered a job with a large aerospace company in their HR Management development program. I made the decision to turn down the job because my husband and I were beginning to discuss trying to become parents. That decision then led to the decision to become a stay-at-home mom which was also something I wasn’t planning to do.
Now, it’s 12 years later. I could wonder how different our lives would be if I was a traditional working mom. What if things were different? But, I wouldn’t change a thing.
On a lighter note… I also think you can look at What if’s as a thing to avoid in being active. “What if” you didn’t spend your evening sitting on the couch watching tv? “What if” you went for a walk after dinner? How would that make you feel?
