From time to time we need to sit back and to reflect on events which led up to where we are now in order to appreciate all we have.
If a certain sequence of events did not happen, we would be elsewhere. One action, one decision has immense impact on our current course in life. If only I sat in a different row. If only I decided not to wait. If only I had not wanted a change in life. But all of those 'if only' thoughts had their place in a future which is yet unfolding.
Everything happens for a reason. When we stop to reflect on all of the little things which happened along the way we gain a better appreciation of our lives and it is something for which we need to be thankful every day.
