A: so why didn’t you?
B: what’s the point? i didn’t want to lose another friend.
A: but what if it could have something different?
B: then… i’ll leave it up to fate.
there are many what-ifs in life. sometimes we tend to wonder what if things had happened differently, if we had not done something, or if we had tried something, would things have happened so much differently?
sometimes i catch myself wondering, ‘what if?’. and i hate it. cause no one will be able to answer that question. not even myself.
we tend to be stucked at crossroads most of the times and have to make decisions. some may be easy, some may not be.
but the important thing is to never regret your decision, for usually there are no second chances. you made your bed, now you will have to lie in it. my motto in life? ‘carpe diem! seize the day!’.
i never want to ponder on what if things had happened differently, i never want to regret not trying something out. thus i try to grab the opportunity whenever it comes by. because i hate the ‘what ifs?’. there is no end to it.
so… next time, when your stuck, just go for it. dont regret not trying anything in life. i may still wonder what would the outcome be should i have taken a different crossroad in life, but at least, i wont regret my decision.
part of the lyrics from “Someday We’ll Know” (Mandy Moore feat. Jonathan Foreman)
So many questions, I need an answer
Two years later you’re still on my mind
Is true love just once in a lifetime?
Oh, Someday weâ€™ll know, If love can move a mountain
Someday weâ€™ll know, Why the sky is blue
Someday weâ€™ll know, Why I wasnâ€™t meant for you…
Someday weâ€™ll know, Why Samson loved Dalilah?
One day I’ll go, Dancing on the moon
Someday youâ€™ll know, That I was the one for you….
If I can ask God just one question… Why arenâ€™t you here with me tonight?
and yes, i wonder what would have happened, if i had…..
