do you ever wonder if your life might have turned out differently if your parents had made one decision on your behalf or done something different in raising you than what they did? think about it. its kind of freaky.
the best example of this in my life is i often wonder why my parents didnt enroll me in competitive swimming when i was a kid. i was always a talented swimmer, but for some reason they kept me into the lifesaving aquatics side of things instead of competition. i have come to the conclusion that my life would be different in the following ways if they had enrolled me in competition:
1) i would have gotten an athletic scholarship to university
2) i would not smoke
3) i would not have flabby arms
4) i probably would not have been friends with any of my high school (or even current friends)
5) i might have gotten to travel more
im sure there are others, and not all of these things are good (im referring to number four) but it makes you think. its amazing how one small thing can affect the outcome of a whole life. we really are the sum of our experiences, so i guess i wouldnt change it, because otherwise, i wouldnt be who i am today.
