If Only or What If?
Have you ever thought to yourself, “What if?” The what if’s and if only’s of life present themselves to us almost daily.
Every regret you have or will have in the future is bound to have you thinking for example, “What if I had remembered to go for petrol this morning? I would have been here at a different time and this accident would never have happened.”
Let me tell you something. Put the what if’s out of your mind. Banish them from existence. They have no right to enter your head. A ‘what if’ scenario in your head is an event that is non-existent. Neither you nor I have the ability to make time run backwards so there is absolutely no point in thinking like that. I, personally, cannot even begin to comprehend the number of what if situations that must have occurred in my life.
I do not want to remember them either. Remembering or dwelling on one of these is detrimental to your overall health and wellbeing.
Should you start to have a what if moment creep into your subconscious, it is best to extinguish it right away with positive thoughts.
These can be in the form of self-affirmation or maybe looking forward to a happy event in the future. You could also start planning something that you would like to achieve. That could be anything from tidying the garden to a masters degree in horticulture.
The point is. Think positive. You are worthy.
