The Paths We Take

The Path” by Gwenole Camus on Flickr.
Do you ever think about what your life would have been like if you had been born someplace else?

Or to other parents?

So many things seem like a great deal of chance, once you actually look into them.

If I hadn’t have been born in New Jersey, I wouldn’t have moved to Orlando, Florida, and I wouldn’t have gone to Disney World every weekend, which would have eventually mean I would not have ever moved to Tokyo.

It’s all a seemingly random order of events in a chain reaction that leads people down their own paths in live.

Not all people are lucky enough to have good paths however,

And for that I am thankful that my path was a good one so far.
