I counsel my friends and relatives to have no "if only’s" in their life. Each decision in your life leads you in a different direction. That decision may lead you in a different direction than you had planned but if you made the decision with some forethought, it will ultimately lead you to where you want to go. It is not the destination that is so important - rather it is the trip getting there that gives your life meaning. Enjoy the trip and observe what happens along the way - you will have great memories to look back on.
