I spend a (worrying) amount of time reflecting on past choices and mistakes. It's a good way to avoid boredom since I'll always have more material. The most common thought I have while doing this is "how would my life have changed if things were different?"

It's a painful feeling to know so many other life paths are now closed off. Would they have been better or worse? Would they have been almost identical or wildly different? I will never know these answers until I get my multi-dimensional telescope patented and working.

But this image always makes me feel better.

"A chart showing all past paths closed off, but all future paths are open."

It's never too late to prepare myself for better life paths ahead. No matter where I am now, things can get better. Especially once that telescope is ready.
