I have had an interesting string of conversations with new friends I have recently made and friends who I have always hung onto and I have yet to come up with a definitive answer or logistical theory about whether or not there exists “life altering” decisions that will change a path our life was heading into.
Anyway I believe in all powerful greatness, but you do need to believe in anything to understand the questions I am asking, you just need to believe in some form of destiny.
I have always wondered if our lives are laid out for us, or if we create the opportunities that are before us. You know? You here stories about people getting jobs because they were in the right place at the right time, stuff along those kinds of lines.
But because we are humans and humans almost innately screw things up, does there exist a timeline in our lives that is only used because of bad decisions we have made? Or are the bad decisions mainly a shortcut gone wrong and variably we are somehow brought back to our original times lines?
A better question to ask would be or example would be a fake woman. Let’s call this fake woman Molly, and Molly is fresh out high school and wants to be a teacher, so she works hard and graduates with all the legitimate credentials she needs to be a high school teacher. Great success story, right? I agree, but what if Molly her senior year had got in a relationship and moved out of her parent’s home and being forced to work full time she had to put school off for a couple years. My question is because of a bad decision took her off her planned path would she ever become a teacher in this different timeline? Or are her chances closed out, because she didn’t follow her original plan?
You see I made questionable decisions starting at about 14 and I can count on 10 hands some things I have done that weren’t the most beneficial thing for me, but I wonder about the practical things in life potentially not being there. Like if in high school I chose to continue focusing on baseball, would I have found my love for writing? That’s troubling to me, I remember how lost I felt as young teen and I cant imagine how I would have maneuvered through life without my love for reading and writing away from the classroom. Though because of the hard work being a successful baseball player takes, I shutter to think if I would have had any downtime to deal with any issues that might have arose.
So in this timeline of my life, I am a 24 year old aspiring writer, but if parallel universes exist and in all those timelines exist the perfect path or timeline my question is, am I on the golden timeline, or is it the silver timeline? And if that’s the case which timeline am I most successful in?
Moreover what about you? Is this the perfect timeline for you? Or have you strayed? And if you have strayed can you see yourself getting back or is your original dream long gone and unachievable?
