Think of all the decisions you make every day. You never know which one s might change your life.
Okay, maybe I should stop now; this has the potential to get entirely too deep and depressing.
Still reading? Then take me, for instance. My first real decision for my own life - What to study? Where to go? Those 2 decisions - not at all influenced by which university had the hottest guys, honest - put me in the path of my (now) husband.
A phone call whilst training, answered for someone else because my housemate wasn't there, landed me a conversation and an invitation to visit Hereford. I loved it and now it's my home.
Once I was qualified, it happened again. A single moment - the end of a very bad day - My parents had flown off to live abroad, I was a junior doc working silly hours and I returned from saying goodbye to my mum and dad to find my (I thought) boyfriend had just moved in with his long term girlfriend! (So that had been a very bad decision, but not exactly life changing, thank God!) My ex phones up, drunk, and wants to take me out. What do I say? Any sane woman would have told him where to get off, but a week later we did go out and have now been happily married for MANY years.
You make many decisions every day and you never know which of them will shape your life. Luck has an important part to play, but I think, sometimes, we help it along.
