What if...

he had accepted that job in the emirates all those years ago.

he hadn't quit his first job when he did.

he hadn't gone looking for a job in the emirates and wasted his parent's hard earned money.

he had gone against his parents and stuck with the girl he was friends with since school.

he had chosen to pursue the sport he was good at instead of wanting to be a priest.

he had opted to continue his priestly studies.

he had pursued a masters in communication like he always wanted to instead of doing an MBA.

he had not moved out of Hyderabad when he did.

he had not moved out of Mumbai when he did.

he had reciprocated the sentiments of the woman from the big apple.

he had met the woman who sat up straight in the passenger seat of a car coming from the opposite direction to get a better look at him under diffferent circumstances.

he had not passed out cold during a socialite party in front of 200 people.

he had moved out of his parent's home when he could have.

he had died when he so wanted to.

he had lived life differently.

i don't think we could move on thinking about "what ifs". i think we will never ever know the outcomes of what we do in life.

but the post is preety cool, i just can't help but think of all the what ifs in my head rolling now!
