Pondering The Butterfly Effect

Do you ever feel like you should have been born and raised somewhere else? I’ve been feeling that way lately. Like, why did my parents choose Ohio? Why not someplace that seems more interesting, like California or Tokyo? Of course I’m sure money was an issue. But then I think about their parents. They chose Ohio too, so my parents probably chose to stay here because of them. But it’s crazy how a single choice / decision has affected generations. And the more I think about this, the more I realize that every choice anyone makes can affect the entire world, somehow. The Butterfly Effect! The Butterfly Effect is simply this: Maybe right now you’re late for something but you’re like me and you’re easily distracted. So you’re reading this when you should be on your way to meet your friend for some food. Those few seconds that you’re taking to read this could have potentially prevented a car accident that could have happened on your way to meet your friend. Bad example, I know. But car accident is what I think of when I think of decision making and results, because car accidents happen in the blink of an eye, and our daily decisions can affect everything in the blink of an eye as well. So when making even the tiniest decisions in life, always try to think about all possible outcomes. Not only does it help the effects, but it also helps you have an open mind, an active imagination, better decision making skills, and allows you to better see all possible sides of the situation, to help you toward the right decision to make.
