Do you ever drift off in a daydream and wonder how different your life might be if, say you had taken that job all those years ago… not met your partner… studied a different subject at uni… or even won the lottery???
I have found that since having my little boy (and being a hell of a lot more tired because of it) there have been many occasions where I have tiredly dozed off into a semi-conscious daydream where my life is completely different to the one I’m living. A sort of ‘Sliding Doors’ scenario if you will!
Not that I’m unhappy with my lot in life, but I’m definitely curious enough to wonder what might have been had I chose another path!
Before I met my hubby I was 110% sure I wanted to study languages at University and become an Interpreter. But when I did eventually go, I was faced with the conundrum of studying abroad for a year, something that I really didn’t want to do because of my relationship.
Evidently I dropped out after a year and as they say, the rest is history. But I do wonder, would I still be married to Michael? And if so, would our life still be what it is now? Would we still have our son???
It’s a strange one isn’t it?
Do you ever wonder what if???
