What if? The possiblities are endless? You have a choice in each action, to open and embrace uncertainty or to be a prisoner to your own limitations.
What if we slowed down and did not worry too much about today’s deadlines?
What if we leave work early to be there when you children come out from school?
What if the house is not too tidy yet it is comfortable and feels like home?
What if for a weekend at least we stop obsessing about what ever it is we obsess about…just for a second, a minute then maybe a day?
What if we act happy even if we have the weight of the world on our shoulders,….something magic might happen?
What if we smile and laugh even if we don’t feel like it?
What if you make a commitment to sit down with the kids and help them with their homework.
What if we stop now, go outside and feel the brilliance of the sun on our face?
What if we tell all that you are close to we love them?
What if we don’t say sorry, don’t heal the hurt?
What if you stop and help someone that you don’t know?
What if today was your last day on earth, what would you do, how would you like to be remembered?
What if you woke up tomorrow wishing it was today?
What if you think I love you and don’t say it?
What if we don’t do these things now, today, what price are we paying?
Would it matter so much, if we don’t quite get it right, don’t quite make the mark or don’t quite achieve that goal? Sooner or later the your own reality will be tested and the things that are most important to you will probably be family and friends. How much you earn, how hard you work will not matter. Are we living or just existing?
What if we lived our entire lives with out feeling the essence of our own existence? Now wouldn’t that be a shame.
ps What if you pass this on…maybe it would make a difference…
