What if?

This is a question that is raised in most of our lives. What if I hadn’t met that person would my life have been different? Or what if I hadn’t turned down that job opportunity would I have been more successful? We spend most of our lives with these two words hanging over our heads, past and present. We can dwell on this all day long but once a decision is made and the past becomes the past there is nothing we can do about it. What if? Soon becomes regret especially if your decision was apparently the wrong one. The choices we make are ours alone, right or wrong and all we can do is either learn from them or make the best of a bad situation. It seems that we are hard wired to think about what could have been had we done something different but it doesn’t really get us anywhere and yet we continue to question what if?
