Today

Here's a thought -

What if...today, you held back on the subtle reflex to go "...oh well..." and replace it with "Hell Yea!"?

What if...today, you looked at a stranger with a genuine smile and in you heart of hearts, wished them a good day?

What if...today, you forgave yourself for your own insecurities and shortcomings and embraced your singular traits and strenghs?

What if...today, when someone pays you a compliment, you actually hold back on the "...you're just saying that..." and actually thanked them for the kind words and bidding them words of appreciation of your own?

What if ...today, you held back on killing those precious brain cells of yours by : overthinking, overstressing, self-deprecation, complaining, whining, sighing...and instead took a second to acknowledge the subtle yet resounding fact that you're.still.here...despite it all...

What if...today, you didn't text or WhatsApp or whatever and actually called someone(there's an app for that...they usually call it <Phone>) and inquired about their day.?..you'd be surprised how that throws most people for a loop.

What if...today, you thanked the Universe/God/Lord Buddha/L Ron Hubbard...whatever you believe in...for giving you something to believe in?...I'm sorry, not too sound all metaphysical...but you gotta a pretty cocky bastard to not be amazed by the sheer magnitude of the fact that we are a bunch of living organisms on floating ball in an endless sea of stars and comets...and think that it's all just part of the natural order of things...

What if... today, you did not ask for permission but simply took action?

What if...today, you focused on your goals instead of aimlessly roaming about both physically and mentally?

What if...today, you actually chose for they day to be different?

What if...today, you applied your energy toward empowering your mind instead of intoxicating it?

What if...today, you embodied the personal truth that you seek?

What if...today, you set a course towards your own definition of Awesomeness?

What if...today, you believed?

Tell me - really...what if?
