“‘What’ and ‘if’ two words as nonthreatening as words come. But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life: ‘What if?’…”
This week I watched the movie Letters to Juliet. Yes! I know pretty cheesy, but I am secretly a geek for happy endings and I was in desperate need of one this week. And it is true the movie wasn’t really Oscar-worthy, but the above quote got me thinking.
Because apparently I am at this time in my life where the “what if’s” and the “buts” & “maybes” are part of my daily vocabulary more than I would like to admit. Clearly on the wrong side of my twenties! I am questioning my career, my non-existing love life – because let’s be honest the closest I come to romance is the fact that I have a third floor balcony like Juliet – some of my friendships and what direction my life should go in in general.
But, like in the movie, the questioning isn’t getting me anywhere. I have therefore decided to limit the “what ifs” and just give certain of my pending ones a go. See if things work out because like Friedrich Nietzsche once said (and Kanye so nicely repeated) “What doesn’t kill you only will make you stronger”.
So my 18th of August resolution for the rest of the year is loose the “what ifs” and turn them in to “wtf’s I cant believe that I actually did that”…
Ill keep you posted on my mission 😉 happy Sunday!
