Alternate worlds, alternate endings

When I was a kid, I used to wonder if there was a person somewhere in the world who was doing the exact same things as me at the exact same moments.  Someone living my life in a different town and country - Twilight Zone-like, but not in a creepy way.

Now that I am older, I still wonder if there are people who have the same issues as me, people dealing with the same ups and downs, the same life indecisions, the same medical issues, the same family issues.

There are over 7 billion people in the world, it could be possible, right?

It really amazes me how life happens.  

How there can be someone in the world who is going through some really hard shit at the same time that others are suffering through inconceivable drama.  Even when I am sitting, planning lessons, there are people I know who are dealing with problems I wouldn't even wish on others.  And at the same time, there are people I know who are living the good life with not a care in the world.

It is really something when you think about it.

I am kind of rambling, but there is a lot going on in my life and my immediate loved ones lives that really have me thinking about so many things, and nothing at all at the same time.


  1. Interesting... definitely food for thought!

  2. That's something. I used to wonder similar things when I was a kid. Was there someone doing the same thing in an alternate universe?

  3. @ Dawn and @ Shantel G - Thanks for stopping by. It is really something that I wonder about regularly. I guess it is still my childhood imagination and sci-fi self that wonders about what else is out there.


I share my thoughts and would love to read your thoughts, too.
