Someone, somewhere is reading this today with a desire to rewrite their personal history.
It's usually influenced by regret: A failure, a lost opportunity, a path not taken.
Choices have consequences. For each time that we answer opportunity's knock, other doors slam shut.
Even the wisest moves result in sacrifice. For example, a decision to study law is a worthwhile pursuit, but somewhere today there's a lawyer wondering what life would be like if an interest in architecture had been pursued instead.
