The Power of "What if"

One of the first lessons I learned when I started rebuilding my life, was to give hope a fighting chance. When I think back to the hours and days after my ex-husband left, I thank my lucky stars, that I gave “what if” and the hope it represented, room to breathe. I didn’t instantly shut it down, instead, I just let it be.

Sometimes that’s the best we can do, and that’s enough. In the midst of my darkest hour, when all logical options seemed impossible when it felt like there was no way on earth I could survive with my children on my own, hope said: “But, what if you can?” Hope countered every argument with: “But, what if you can?”

That little thought was the origin of everything.

And today, I’m asking the same of you. I want you to give hope room to breathe. Don’t squash it. I know sometimes that’s our go-to reaction, but I’m asking you -no screw that- I’m BEGGING you…let it marinate. Give it time to work its magic on your thoughts, your beliefs, and your life.

What if, your life was everything you ever dreamed it could be? What if, you had wealth and abundance and never worried about money? What if, you had a body you loved and felt fit and healthy? What if, you had relationships filled with joy, mutual respect and happiness, that made you feel wanted and loved? What if, you had a job you loved? What if, you started that business? What if, you traveled the world? What if, you were the person you dream you could be, living the life you dream of living?

What then? Who would you be? What would that life look like?
