so why didn’t you?

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.

i hope.

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 we’ll know, If love can move a mountain
Someday we’ll know, Why the sky is blue
Someday we’ll know, Why I wasn’t meant for you…

Someday we’ll know, Why Samson loved Dalilah?
One day I’ll go, Dancing on the moon
Someday you’ll know, That I was the one for you….

If I can ask God just one question… Why aren’t you here with me tonight?

and yes, i wonder what would have happened, if i had…..

  1. i always hate to think what ifs too

    as long as u have tried ur best… it’s good to look ahead without regrets..

    or as long as u have decided wat to do, move forward 🙂

    nadnut: amen sister.


  2. i do agree that if we don’t try, we will always have the “what-if” lingering at the back of our minds.

    but sometimes, after you’ve tried and mayhap, failed. you would have thought…maybe i should have left it as it was.

    it’s never easy to come up with a hard and fast rule on how to act when at a crossroad.

    until now, i’ve not been able to tell myself that i have no regrets. can you?


    nadnut: well, once u have chosen the path you have taken, you just have to not look back i guess?
