Probably what I love most about it is the concept of the movie, how the decisions and choices we make alter the course of our future, our life...how the most insignificant choice can have such a profound impact on our life and the direction it goes in. This of course works with both the positive and negative choices that we make.
I can think of one such decision I made that changed my life...for the better.
I met Hubby online. Yep, I did and I'm not embarrassed at all about it. I think it's actually a great way for people to meet and the stigma that surrounded it years ago has long subsided (I think). I know a few women who have met their husbands in this way.
I had been doing online dating for a while...long enough to meet some duds and some nice guys, but nothing ever lead anywhere...not where I wanted it to go anyways.
After meeting one nice guy and going on a couple of dates with him, only to find out he had just gotten out of a long-term relationship and really just wanted a playmate, I figured I had had enough of this online dating and I was going to give it a rest.
I had a roommate at the time and I recall mentioning, when I came home after learning this, that I was done...no more internet dating for me.
And then....(get ready for the sliding doors moment) ...
...I decided I'd check my messages ONE. MORE. TIME.
And there was Hubby.
And the rest is history.
It goes without saying (but I'll say it anyways) that had I not checked my messages and, in fact, deleted my account altogether, I would've never met Hubby and gone on to have my crazy, wonderful boys! All three of them. I can't imagine it. I don't want to imagine it.
I went through that sliding door...
...and life is good.
Your turn: Do you have a "sliding doors" moment that really changed your life?
