The Butterfly Effect
Last night I watched a great little supernatural movie called The Butterfly Effect. I'm not sure what the title has to do with the movie but it was a film that gets you thinking.....what if?
A young man (Kutcher) blacks out harmfull memories of significant events of his life. As he grows up he finds a way to remember these lost memories and a supernatural way to alter his life.
Have you ever wondered how differently your life might have turned out had you taken a left turn instead of a right on the day of that fateful accident, or chosen a different college or career path, or not gone to that dance the night you met your one true love?
All of us have played this `what if' game at some point in our lives, speculating about where we might be, whom we might know and what we might be doing now if even a single event in our past had played out differently.
And how many of us would be willing to return to a key moment in our past if we knew that, by doing something different, we could forever alter the path our life ended up taking?
And what if we discovered that by undoing that event we ended up altering our lives and the lives of those around us in ways we never expected?
Would we still want to do it?
