Do you wonder what’s happened to your Ex?

You’ve searched them on Google and Facebook, hoping they’d pop up.  Or maybe they’ve found you?  Or maybe they’re still out there – those beacons of your past; memories perhaps distant enough to lead you to wonder what took them away from you.

Were they loves or friends?  Hero(ine)s or monsters?

Our personal and private histories build and compound on themselves, making us figurative pyramids headed toward who we will ultimately be…yet some blocks are more compelling; they draw us to revisit them and wonder what might have ended differently?

Remember the movie Sliding Doors?  (It’s a good one if you haven’t seen it.)

It’s haunting how even the small, day-to-day choices we make echo into our future and have compounding effect.

What if my parents had never…

What if I never…

What if I never met…

What if I never went to…

What if I had chosen to [x] instead of [y]…

What if [x] hadn’t died…

What if I had died…

Wondering “what if” can be torture.  There may be much a person can wish to take back…to dream of the cosmic do-over.  But the fabulous thing about history is that you can look back, dream and wonder – learn from it and still have the power to live your life going forward.  Chose your best adventure!

Hindsight is 20/20.  The future is relatively blind.
