The Story Scrapbook Challenge

I’m going to ask a question for this story scrapbook challenge this month … WHAT IF ?  I’m sure we’ve all had many moments of ‘what ifs’ in our lives.

  • What if you had that extra time with a loved one, what would you say to them?
  • What if you had played it safe, instead of taking a chance?
  • What if you hadn’t said yes to that crazy new job, would you have had the career you now have?
  • Or what if you hadn’t quit when you did, would you have been able to juggle it all and still been fulfilled and happy?
  • What if your numbers came up, and you won lotto, how do you think it would change you?
  • What if you hadn’t said yes to that boy when he asked you out, would you be happily married with a family now?
  • What if you hadn’t had that big argument with a friend, would it have changed your future?
  • What if you had done what was expected of you, rather than take a chance on something you wanted to do?

Lots of areas to venture our thoughts with this one.  And what if I hadn’t asked the CT to help, we wouldn’t have had these terrific pages to inspire you  ;-)

Liz has made a terrific page about a chance she took when threw caution to the wind, made a grand sweeping statement and set forth on a big adventures which lasted almost a lifetime when she went to live in South Africa.  Wow.  Now that is a big what if, pondering how different she may have been today if she hadn’t taken that chance.

    What a fun and thought-provoking challenge. Most of us could probably do an entire album on the “what ifs” of our lives. Another project …. the list gets longer … sigh!
    Thanks for the cute freebie. I love the story challenges although I don’t always get to them in a timely fashion.
