What if? Have you ever sat somewhere pondering life and thought what your life might be like had you made a few different decisions. As most of you know I am a thinker by nature and I've wondered about things like this on countless occasions. The 'What If' question can be incredibly dangerous or it can lead to the stars; it relies heavily on the user.
I believe looking back on life and questioning past decisions can be a dangerous endeavor if it is done for too long or too often. Questioning past situations is good for directing your future, but I wouldn't spend too much time second-guessing.
Now if you use the 'what if' to challenge the possibilities of the future or to challenge the status quo, then you are on to something. This to me is how we change the future, push the boundaries of ourselves and become more than we could have ever expected.
One question: what if. Just be sure you are using it to better yourself, not lament the past.
