People are the sum of their choices in life. Some work out really well, while others not so much. But both kinds end up defining who we are. Words, after all, can often be deceiving – actions are unmistakable. Still, even if you have a very good idea of who you are – or who you want to be – and you’ve laid a path for yourself, things don’t always work out quite as you planned.
“God does not play dice,” Albert Einstein famously wrote, but it seems like random luck and chance play a major role in our lives. The smallest decisions, no matter how inconsequential they seem at the time, may prove to have long-lasting and crucial effects later. Any decision is like throwing a stone into a pool, and watching the ripples – or consequences – form around it. Just take this couple, who bought a Scottish manor house completely by accident.
