Have you ever watched that movie Sliding Doors with Gwyneth Paltrow? Oh my goodness, you definitely must rent it. It’s all about what your life would have been like if you had turned left vs. turning right and visa versa.
Have you ever thought, this isn’t the way I thought my life was going to be? I thought I was going to be doing this or that.
When I was a little girl, I thought I was going to be an archeologist. True story. I was fascinated with history and King Tut. We even named one of our family dogs Tut for King Tut.
I grew up in Hawaii, went to college in Kansas, but secretly wanted to Texas. I didn’t want to disappoint my Dad who went to Kansas (KU) so I went there. Ended up back in Hawaii because of a boy. Decided on a whim to move to California knowing just one person. Started temping at advertising agencies and stumbled into events. Met my husband and have a beautiful soon to be middle schooler.
Now I have my own events company.
I sometimes find myself thinking…what if. What if I went to Texas and didn’t go back to Hawaii for that boy. Would I be in California? I don’t think so.
I intended to be an archeologist. Now I plan parties, conferences and tradeshows, I'm a wife and a mama. I think I’ve ended up where I was intended to be.
How about you? What’s your story? What do you think would have happened if you turned left vs. right?
