Things I’ve been Pondering~

What if we each woke up to greet the morning with our best selves–imagine all we could accomplish.

What if we all tried to live by the Golden Rule?

What if we smiled at strangers and extended our hands to them?

What if we said yes instead of no?

What if in a moment of anger and frustration we swallowed the coalblack sooty words and spewed out something less profane instead?

What if we paid attention to our own needs with the same care and attention we gave to others in our families?

What if we all listened to Martin Luther King’s “I Have Dream” speech with an open heart?

What if we said no instead of yes?

What if I could look at the pictures above my bed and feel pride for taking those shots, resisting the temptation to critique them?

What if I met my eyes head-on in the mirror?

What if I strangled my fear and allowed myself to take center stage in someone else’s photograph?

What if I resisted the urge to gather, collect and hold the whole world to me?

Is it possible, could I open my arms wide and just let it all go?

Could it really be that simple?
