I recently saw this “shower thoughts” post, and it’s been on my mind ever since. It said something along the lines of, “People are afraid of travelling to the past because they think one small action will majorly change the future. But they don’t think that their one small action in the present will also have the same effect.” Basically, the butterfly effect.
Last Friday was the result of a series of small actions leading up to a single, precious moment. It started with one small action from 5 years ago.
