What if...

(photo from Internet)

This day could be my happiest so far,
as I fill my heart with gratitude for life.
Take opportunities, reach out in love
to others in my family and dear friends.

Instead, there's the temptation to say
what if...I could loose a few more pounds,
be younger, write a successful book or
achieve all my dreams then I'd be happy.

Growing older should bring wisdom and
understanding of what it's all about,
not competition but cooperation with
our fellowman so we can all be successful.


  1. Lin, this is wonderful. So very true! And the photo was a bright ray of sunshine as well.

  2. I love this!! What if we though that everyday??

  3. This is so true. I suppose our yearnings drive us forward even as we enjoy the wonders around us.

  4. I agree. We need to really appreciate all that we have. It's our responsibility to be happy.

  5. We do spend too much time with our little voice saying 'what if'...
