It seems that there are certain things that happened in my life, that had they never occurred, my life could not have possibly turned out as it did.
Equally, there are other things I desperately wanted, that had they actually come true, would have taken me down a completely different path.
I guess I should believe it was fate.
Or, perhaps that things might have turned out pretty darn ok no matter what life threw at me.
Sometimes we put so much pressure on specific decisions, important divides in the road, seemingly life altering moments from which there is no turning back.
Only to find later that life has a way of working itself out.
