WHAT IF…

20141017_124510
(One of my art pieces)
Are you, or someone you know, one of those people who are always asking the question, “What if…?”  If you are, then we need to fine-tune your thought process. 
I used to be the first person to ask that detrimental question…so much so that I freaked myself out to the point of having to take anti-anxiety medication just to get through the day.  If you or someone you know are in the habit of asking this question, even once daily, then you need to understand that that is a very unhealthy habit.  You cannot be free of stress until you realize that “what if,” takes care of itself. 
There is no such thing as “what if.”  There either is, or there isn’t.  When you ask this question, you project into the future and no one knows what the future holds for you, at least not anyone in this realm (albeit there are those rare people who can predict but even they don’t ask “what if,” because they know). 
Once I took a long look at this habit and how badly it was affecting me, I understood just how silly it is to ask, “What if…,” because it isn’t possible.  What happens, happens and cannot be undone once the fleeting moment has spent.  There is the here and the now.  The what was is left in the past (unless you relish living with depression) and the what is to be is left to the future (unless you wish to live with anxiety).  Many factors run throughout the course of a day and none of them are contingent upon what will be as it hasn’t happened yet and may not happen at all.  People tend to set themselves up for a lot of worry and anxiety when they think that things “could” happen to them and/or their upcoming plans.
Do yourselves a favor and let what will happen, happen.  Live in the moment and DO NOT project forward because you do not know what your future holds. The happiest you can be is in the here and the now.  What you “think” as far as the future goes, can sometimes bring on negative effects and you could be throwing wrenches into your plans that way. 
We are all so busy looking for the non-existent plain of eternal happiness that we don’t realize our happiness is made up of small moments of joy and triumphs throughout an “ordinary” day.  Try living just for the here and the now; trust with blind faith that everything in the future has already been mapped out for you and most important of all…remember to just breathe.
