The what ifs of life...

I started catching up on "How I Met Your Mother" recently and I'm just around 5 episodes behind. I just need to start watching Season 5 now.

So anyway, I couldn't help but reflect on the "What Ifs". One of the props from the show is the yellow umbrella. We still don't know who the mother is though. But the yellow umbrella Ted found belongs to the "mother". So when the umbrella is shown, Ted narrates what if he didn't go out that day, what if he turned left instead of right, what if he didn't stop at the magazine stand? He wouldn't have met the Mother...

I have a knack for thinking of "What Ifs" just like Ted. I guess the Marvel Comic contributes to this...

OK, why am I thinking of these What Ifs?

I don't know, I guess that past month has got me thinking of some things. I mean, a couple of months ago, I was feeling so so low. Back then I was asking all the "Whys". But as time progressed, I saw how life worked... You'll be surprised. Everything happens for a reason. Now, I think things are turning for the better. I'm happy and I haven't been this happy for a while.

What if a different decision was made? Then I wouldn't be where I am now would I? :)

What if you're reading this now instead of doing something else? :)

..haha, what if i was reading this now instead of doing something else?? hahaha ^^,).

..it's a nature of a man to have such "what if's" in life. It is just normal to have regrets of doing some things and thinking what might have been if.. blah blah blah. But what's important is that, with every down feelings that u had from your regrets, you know that everything do happens for a reason, and it is definitely God's will. In fact, we shoul'dnt be regretful of our mistakes, because without them, we may not be in the life that we have today.

..if i didn't know President Cory, i would'nt have known Kuya Jggy? If i didn'nt know Kuya Jiggy, i would'nt be also knowing this blogspot? AND IF i did'nt know this blogspot? i probably would'nt be writing these things by now ^^,).

..you know, things are just so interrelated to one another, that even the good ones are tied from the bad ones. It's so nice to have a realization like this.

..thanks for sharing kuya, hihi ^^,). hope you dont regret having your IF's.

..more powers and God Bless.
