I Wonder What Would Happen If I…..?

December 31, 2017
I wonder what would happen if I ....?

2018 is going to be the year when I ask myself – often – I Wonder What Would Happen If I…..? Like most everyone I make New Year’s Resolutions. Also, like most everyone, I usually forget about them by the second week of the year. 

Usually my resolutions are about losing weight, finding love and improving my finances. And, to my credit, I made considerable strides in all those areas this year.

There’s still work to do, but I’m pretty happy with how 2017 turned out, even if there’s still a lot of room for improvement.

I wonder what would happen if I looked at my glass as half full?

Instead of endlessly scrolling through social media and reading about other people living wonderful lives, I am going to get out more and live my own life.

Don’t get me wrong, I love reading about people’s success and travels and their wonderful lives… but I know there’s more to life than that.

What I have found lately is that reading about just the good, without being privy to the bad, I end up comparing my bad to their good.

I wonder what would happen if I stopped comparing myself to others?

When I was a child – I Wonder What Would Happen If I…..? – was said regularly. It’s a natural thing for kids to be curious and to try new things. I don’t know when we lost that wonder, but it’s time to get it back.

The best things happed because someone asked themself – I Wonder What Would Happen If I…..?

So this year, instead of resolving to lose weight, find love and get rich I’m going to ask myself:

I Wonder What Would Happen If I….. added another mile to walk each day?

I Wonder What Would Happen If I….. made an effort to get out and meet men who enjoy similar activities as me?

I Wonder What Would Happen If I….. took some risks and started a new venture that’s been tickling the back of my brain for a few years?

While I’m at it, I wonder what would happen if I spent a little more time on my blog than I do on social media? 

What sort of things will you wonder about in 2018?
