Sliding doors… Thoughts on life

As I get older I look back on my life & see paths unchosen, moments where a simple changing of my mind would have meant a different life.
It brings to mind the movie Sliding Doors with Gwyneth Paltrow. I love how they tied this idea of simple choices & their effect on life, with the visual of a subway train… It really highlights that we underestimate these moments while we are in the middle of them, what we think is a small choice, a tiny decision, such as which stop to get off at in this metaphor, actually has a lasting effect.
Is the path untaken also unattainable? Or can one find their way back to it?
