What If One Day…

“It doesn’t matter whom you love or where you move from or to, you always take yourself with you. If you don’t know who you are, or if you’ve forgotten or misplaced her, then you’ll always feel as if you don’t belong. “ ― Sarah Ban Breathnach, Moving On: Creating Your House of Belonging with Simple Abundance

There are times we feel empty, unaccomplished. We wonder why we feel stuck. Perhaps we only feel like we aren’t moving forward because our interpretation of our life is skewed.

Seriously, sometimes we look for the wrong things; therefore we don’t see what really matters.  We forget we have a better vantage point looking from the inside out, rather than being the stranger looking at us from afar. We are able to see within the origin of all that has come from us.

The truth is we felt the love, joy, heartache, sadness, and confusion.  We heard the voice that prodded us along. No one experienced what was sacred to us. They only surmised from the reflection we cast.

We have the ability to sift through our lives and find the beauty within. We tend to pull in our scattered petals; discarding the imperfect and pinning the unfurling flowers upon our shoulders. What will it take us to realize it is the whole of us that makes us beautiful and unique? And all the while we are questioning ourselves; we go on living, fulfilling the promise of life before us…and we don’t even realize it.

What if for one day we went about our business unconcerned with what others thought?

What if for one day we felt complete beauty, untarnished by shame or guilt?

What if for one day we were committed to only what truly mattered?

What if for one day we didn’t question but trusted our souls?

What if for one day we loved ourselves as God loves us?

What if for one day we embraced our uniqueness?

What if for one day we lived as if it was our last?

What if for one day we felt we truly belonged?

What if for one day we only loved?

    That is so true, Suzi.

    And I love the questions you posed. Especially these two…

    “What if for one day we didn’t question but trusted our souls?”
    “What if for one day we embraced our uniqueness?”

    Yup!

    Thanks for sharing this my, friend!

  2. “What if one day . . .” we did only a couple of these things? It would be the most amazing, freeing day of our lives. Maybe it would even become a habit.

  3. I think it’s a great thing to let go of the negative stuff in your life. We know what those negative triggers are, so why not just let them go? Being happy is a choice I think. Choosing to not get hurt or angry or negative is the best course for me. I’m not saying I can always succeed in doing it, but even in trying to, I’m making my life better.

  4. Your “What if for one day” questions are outstanding, Suzi. Too often, we spend more time worrying over the inconsequential than focusing on the important. Thank you for gently leading us to zero in on what matters!

  5. Thanks for making me reflect on what really matters in life. Your writing flows from one beautiful quote to another.. I also like very much the quote by Sarah Ban Breathnach as well as the introductory picture. Thank you for sharing. :-)

  6. I continue to hold the vision of this beautiful and peaceful world.. We are creating it… it is here… we just have to have the intuitive eyes to see it… just behind the veils… continuing to radiate our joy and beingness… makes it that much clearer… Barbara
