Wondering About the What Ifs

I know that doing this is not really productive. There is no point in going back in time (mentally, at least) and wondering what could have happened if only I did things differently. I can't help it, though. Sometimes, I just can't stop myself from wondering.

What if I had summoned enough motivation to go back to ECE? Would I have been an engineer now? (And so what if I were one, by the way?)

What if I had stuck to my direction/purpose in life back then? Would I have been more fulfilled spirituality?

What if I had practiced my profession? Would I have been better off?

Oh the what ifs of life. Sometimes I think that I should have been more cautious. I should have been more purpose driven. I should have known better.

Then again, who is to say that my life would have been better if I had chosen different paths in the past?

Time to forget about the what ifs and deal with the "what now?"

  2. I agree with you on that. there's no point dwelling in the past. What I try to do is to learn from it and use what I've learnt to help me in the here and now.

    --> Were you supposed to be a nun, Numi?

    Think of it this way, if you had gone all those other ways, you might still be wondering what would have happened if you'd done things differently.

  4. The what if's are no where near as scary as the what nows. So many crossroads in life, so little time

    Girlguide and lot2learn - yup, the present needs our attention more than the past, doesn't it?
