WHAT IF I had decided not to be born?
WHAT IF my mother hadn’t fudged my birth certificate so that I could go to school with kids older than myself and get a "head-start" in life?
WHAT IF my parents hadn’t sent me to that conservative Catholic school that they believed it was the “best education” I could receive?
WHAT IF I had done the sane thing and listened to my grandmother's advice about becoming a teacher (for mainly three reasons: June, July and August)?
WHAT IF I hadn’t left Australia to come to Greece?
WHAT IF I’d been unscrupulous and slept my way to the top when I was still daisy fresh?
WHAT IF I had been sick and unable to attend the fateful art gallery exhibition where I met my husband?
WHAT IF I hadn’t reprioritised my life upon having my firstborn?
WHAT IF I had listened to everyone (doctor, husband, friends, yikes...) and aborted the “second child” just as they suggested cause all their stupid tests showed all sorts of problems?
WHAT IF - instead of being cynical and skeptical - I had let myself fall for the romantic words and compliments dished out by my first love who suddenly crawled out of the woodwork after over two decades of absence?
WHAT IF Alexandra and Vivi were still alive?
WHAT IF I couldn't light up a cigarette to be mesmerised and side-tracked by the "dancing smoke" everytime I want to cry?
WHAT IF I succumbed to pressure and got a cell phone? (No way!)
WHAT IF I had not begun this blog and not met you people?
WHAT IF everything we know is just a figment of our imagination and that none of this is real?
WHAT IF I discover that everything I've ever fought for and believed in is sheer fabrication (yes, Robin, just like "The Truman Show"), and WHAT IF this discovery is made shortly before I die? Would it still be a discovery I would want to make?
WHAT IF there actually is a God?
our lives had been different, would we still be the same…?
Is it our values that shape our lives or is it our experiences that influence our beliefs?
And, finally, WHAT IF I had not read Jeff's "Wouldn't it be GREAT..." post?
Would I have still written this? (CLICK HERE)
(Now you all know who is to blame!)
