We all go through life thinking, ‘What if…’ at certain situations, I know I do, all the time! Like what if I went to a different college, I would have never met any of my best friends now, I would have never experienced any of the emotions and memories with them, I would have never fallen for one of my friends or what if I chose a different university?? Again would my course have been better, would the opportunities have been better would I have made better friends or not. Which is why I agree with the phrase it’s better to regret something you did than something you wish you did… so embrace your lives without thinking twice because missing out on an opportunity is one of the worst regrets a person could have…
Lately I really have fallen in love with English all over again, and it’s so true it’s crazy the power that one word can have just like the scene from the film letters to Juliet…
I didn’t go to him, Juliet. I didn’t go to Lorenzo. His eyes were so full of trust. I promised I’d meet him and run away together because my parents don’t approve. But, instead, I left him waiting for me below our tree, waiting and wondering where I was. I’m in Verona now. I return to London in the morning and I am so afraid. Please, Juliet tell me what I should do. My heart is breaking, and I have no one else to turn to. Love, Claire
Dear Claire, “What” and “If” are two words as non-threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: What if? What if? What if? I don’t know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it’s never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like: love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for, but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I’d have the courage to seize it. And Claire, if you didn’t, I hope one day that you will. All my love, Juliet
So what if I didn’t have this blog…. none of this would exist and I wouldn’t have discovered life with blogging!
