If plagues us. If annoys us. If keeps us busy.
“If I had only taken the job.”
“If I worked harder, I would be more successful.”
“If I had only taken a right turn instead of a left.”
“If you would shut up, I could go back to sleep!”
“If I said that at that time (not thought about it two hours later) it would have been the perfect comeback.”
If is a big part of our lives. Sometimes the many Ifs get too loud and it puts us in a bad mood. It’s tough to think of all the missed opportunities.
If can also motivate us. Help us do better next time, so we stop drowning in a pool of missed “Ifs”.
If we captured all the Ifs, shoved them into a rocket ship, and sent them up in space, we would have a party celebrating the peace from the Debbie Downing “Ifs”.
There is one problem: Then what would we do with all of our free time without the Ifs?”
