Sliding Doors Too

>>  Tuesday, August 04, 2009

Wife of Bold posted on Sliding Doors a while ago.


There are times when we look back on some of the decisions taken about life and wonder what it would have been like if we'd done something different (stayed in Education longer/left earlier; not married/married; kids/no kids) but have you ever had a real Sliding Doors moment.


Mine was in July 2000 at a traffic island. I took a life changing decision at that roundabout and went a particular way (not home to my then husband). That decision triggered a series of life changing events.


I know that if I had of gone home it would have triggered a different series of events but I firmly believe all roads would have still brought me to here, precisely where I am now.


So I can only wonder if the other roads would have been less (or more) bumpy but I know I am happy about where they brought me to today.

Philosophical. I haven't really thought about the what might have beens, or doing things differently. I tend to just potter along, racking up the years and the experiences. I like to think that I make my own path, but I swerve to avoid the obstacles thrown in my way.

I think about things like that a lot. I can see a lot of choices that were made for me or by me that have changed everything and I often wonder "what if", but I like the me I am. :)

When I look back, I can see so many 'Sliding Door' moments. There's been some pain along the way, but like you, I don't think I'd want to end up anywhere but here.
