As anyone who is an Office fan knows, last night was a big night as the subjects of everyone’s favourite workplace romance got hitched. I remember watching the season 2 finale and being so excited at them just kissing so the idea that they were getting married brought some serious tears to my eyes.
I think the thing I liked most about it was that it enforced the idea, albeit with fictional characters, that life is malleable and built on the chances we take. Sometimes those chances seem small or we don’t even realize their significant to us at the time, but they can turn out to have big consequences. By doing something, by saying something, we can shape our whole lives and turn them into what we’ve always wanted them to be.
When I first came across Boy, I thought he was cute so I took a chance, said hello and cracked a silly joke. He responded in turn, amused, and a few weeks later, he officially asked me out. Neither of us knew when we made the plans for that night that by taking that little chance on each other, that it would lead to a happy life and marriage, but I am glad it did.
So here’s to taking chances – you never know where they might lead. 😉
As a special little bonus, I’m including a short film I found on YouTube called Signs. As it is a little reminiscent of Jim and Pam, I thought it was appropriate.
