"I've had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened" ~ Mark Twain
What if you woke one morning and felt okay (or better)?
What if you found yourself being grateful for being alive?
What if you just enjoyed the moment while you drank your coffee (tea, juice,or green smoothie)?
What if you really focused on the nice warm water during your shower and realized that more than 2/3 of the world had no such luxury?
What if you noticed the beautiful sunshine or appreciated the melancholy rain on the way to work, but failed to notice the aggressive driver riding your tail?
What if you smiled and said hello to everyone as you entered the office, without judging thoughts or evaluations - just an honest hello? (Even to the guy that supposedly talked bad about you last week).
What if you noticed each and every breath as you took it, realizing that life was a miracle, and felt the peace of the present moment?
What if everything went right? What if it was okay even if it didn't?
Could you handle it, or do you need for things to be bad and to worry about the future? Do you feel more secure when there is something wrong?
For Robby - May the Universe bless you Robby, wherever you are.
If you saw the face of God and Love,
Would you change? ~ Tracy Chapman
