Of What Ifs and Ewoks

Published Sep 22, 2021 by Rick Cundiff

For most of us, life is pretty ordinary most days. We go to work, we go home, we go shopping, we go to the movies. We cook, we clean, we take the kids to school, the dogs to the dog park. And for the most part, life is good.

But do you ever wonder, every so often, just a little bit, what if? Not really a dissatisfaction with life, but a question of how a single decision might have changed things, for better or worse?

What if you had changed your major in college? What if  you had gone to college? What if you hadn’t?

It's natural to wonder about such things sometimes. We all do it. Of course, you don’t have to apply it only to big life choices. What if you had bought that Accord instead of the Camry? Grocery shopped at Kroger instead of Winn-Dixie? Seen the “Star Wars” movies in a different order?*

But you can't let what ifs rule your life. There’s no way to know how things might have turned out. We make our decisions and we live with the consequences. And that’s as it should be, as it must.

Imagine if you had to consider every possible outcome, for example, of leaving for work 10 minutes early one morning. Maybe you’ll get to work early, and the boss will take note of your timeliness.

Or maybe you’ll get stuck in a traffic jam you otherwise would have missed and the boss will grumble because you're late. Maybe you’ll see an accident along the way. You might avoid an accident. You might be in an accident. There’s no way to predict every possible outcome.

And the exact circumstances apply to a decision to leave 10 minutes later. We can analyze the possibilities until we can no longer make a decision. So we make the best decision we can with the information we have.

That’s the way it goes with custom patches, too. You can say just about anything you want on a patch. We can make it happen. Too many choices? No worries. Our experienced staff will guide you through the process to make sure you don’t suffer the heartbreak of Patch Regret.

Now as far as where to buy patches, that’s easy. Custom-Patches4Less.com is THE place to get them. Call, email or fill out our no-obligation free quote form today to find out how easy ordering great patches can be.

*As for Star Wars, our Direct Sales manager says start with Episodes 4,5, and 6, then go with 1 through 3, Rogue One, 7 through 9, Solo and Ewok Adventure.

We respectfully disagree. We suggest starting with Solo, then Rogue One, THEN 4, 5 and 6 (the original trilogy), 2, 3 and 7 through 9. Unless you’re a Jar Jar Binks fan, skip 1, and unless you or a small carbon-based life form you love are big fans of Ewoks, skip Ewok Adventure.
