How certain things happened in the past plays a role in the person we are today. The decisions we make today also determine who we will be in the future. It all builds on top of each other — our decisions accumulate more decision making. Before you know, we are layers and layers deep into our story of how we got to where we are today.
Sometimes, taking a pause to think back on all the either significant (or even insignificant) details of how we got to this point in our life. Is it the people that we meet, is it because we decided to do that then and there, etc?
All these building block moments create the person you are today and will become in the coming years. Choose wisely on what is worth it.
