As I was driving to work today I suddenly thought about what would have happened if I had gone to school at the university in my hometown.
I would have had a great education.
I would have lived close to [home].
I would have stayed closer with friends.
I would probably be a lot closer to the girl I was when I left.
I wouldn't have Micheal and every great part of my life that he brings.
I wouldn't be ME, I wouldn't be the person I wanted to become.
3 years ago around this time I was packing my bags and heading to Utah to start my education. I had no idea what it would bring but with a smile on my face I walked into a world that I have learned to appreciate, learned to love.
One decision truly changed my life forever. I decided to take a chance on a culture I wasn't so sure I would love. Coming to BYU was the best thing that ever happened to me. I don't think there is anyway I would be who I am if it wasn't for my time here.
Today I am a different person because of the decisions I made years ago. Everyday I am looking forward to the next chance I have to step back and appreciate the decision I made to make myself a better person.
Even when those decisions sneak up on me!
