Change and Sliding Doors

Do you sometimes wonder about those pivotal moments when a decision or circumstance changed the whole course of your life? Where would you be now if things had been different?

The truth is, although we sometimes feel like life is just ticking by in the same relentless fashion, the power to change the pattern is in our own hands, and change can happen in an instant when a real heart felt decision to change is made.

When I think of changing circumstances I often relate back to the film sliding doors starring Gwyneth Paltrow.

The film alternates between two parallel universes, based on the two paths the central character’s life could take depending on whether or not she catches a train and how that causes different outcomes in her life.

The point is you can’t change what has been, but you can change how you feel now, what path you want to take in that moment, and subsequently the direction it may take you in the future.

Follow the path of your heart.
