What if today was special
Just like every other day,
Wondrous and joyous
Filled with purpose and meaning?
What if we stopped
Spun ourselves around
For just a moment,
Gave in to a new way.
What if every single person we met
We needed to meet?
If every single person we came into contact with,
From the cashier at the grocery store,
To the doctor,
To the person in the car next to you at a red light,
If every one of them had meaning for you,
A reason to cross paths with your life.
If even for a moment your energy was
Affected by theirs and vice versa?
If that one moment of energy exchange
Made a million things possible that otherwise
Wouldn’t have been.
What if every moment, every tiny thing
We do is part of
A greater purpose
Beyond what we can see?
What if the miracle is that we are alive,
If our own existence
Comes with so many
Happenstance situations that
We must be here for a purpose.
What if we lived our lives with
This kind of reverence for all we encounter
No matter whether we term it ‘good’ or ‘bad’
It is meant to happen purely
To be part of our story.
What if we lived from a place of
What if instead of why me?
What could it hurt to believe in greatness?
Today was like any other day, woke up, went to work, ran errands, worked out etc.But as the day wore on an idea wouldn’t leave my head. What if all of this is part of something more, what if there’s a reason? When I get this idea in my head everything feels magical and light. I feel connected to something greater and as though there is no way anything could be wrong. Things could feel wrong, and feel bad, and I could get upset and angry and depressed (and believe me I do), but things couldn’t actually be wrong. Because of all the billions of possibilities-of things and people and events in the world-of all the things that had to happen just so I can be where I am right now, there must be some reason, some purpose. It has to be ‘right’ merely because it is, even with all the other possibilities that could have happened instead. And you know it is a rather comforting way of thinking. If only I could think this way all the time. What do you think about living from a place of ‘what if,’ could you do it, would you want to?
