Do you ever ask yourself that question?
What if you hadn’t quit that job, moved from that city, or lead a different yet familiar life?
From time to time I must admit that I do. Sometimes it happens consciously when I am the midst of transitioning from city to city, job to job, or lifestyle to lifestyle. What if I had just stayed in the same place?
However, usually I left or made changes because I had to and they were needed.
Yesterday when I read Lisa’s blog I could not help but ask myself, what would of happened if I had never left B.C?
This question leads to What if I had never left Ottawa?
I know that leaving Montreal was in my best interest and I sometimes wonder how long I will stay in Taiwan. Deep down I know that I like to change cities and move on to something new after a couple of years.
Ironically, British Columbia, the province in which I was brought up has become “new”, yet it seems very familiar and because of that I am not quite ready to go back. Not yet…….
Because if I had stayed in B.C. I most likely would not of developed my love of clubbing and hence photography…..
Because if I had stayed in Ottawa I most likely would not of married Ranjit……
Because if I had stayed in Montreal I would be….. well unfulfilled and surrounded by superficial people….
At the moment I am staying in Taiwan because amongst all the discomfort and turmoil a lot of good things are happening…
Now if only I could slow down and enjoy it….
