I sometimes think how life would have been if I had taken different paths at the various crossroads.
At this moment right now, would I have been preparing the blueprint for a new building?
Would I have been holding an expectant mother's hand in professional confidence?
Would I be grinding my nose in a textbook in the land of the dollar dreams?
Looking back,the different crossroads in life, are not only about making decisions, but also about giving up. Be it the question of having a pet, or giving up classical violin or a relationship, we make decisions that we think seem to be the right thing to do at that juncture. We give up, aspiring for a tomorrow which replaces everything.
And the surprising thing is, it almost always does.
