But What If?...

But, What If?

We’re used to life as we know it, but…

What if we were all created equal?
What if we didn't have to fear sickness?
What if we were immortal?
What if we were perfect? No flaws...
What if we knew when we would die, determined by our gender?
What if our lives were all planned out, with nothing spontaneous to look forward to?
What if the word “discrimination” really meant “love"?
What if racism wasn't taboo?
What if Germany had won the war?
What if slavery hadn't been abolished?
What if love had a monetary value?
What if marriage was a sin?
What if sinning was an acceptable behavior?
What if we didn't have morals or core values?
What if we were just here to reproduce?
What if happiness was a given for all of us?
What if poverty didn't exist?
What if there was no God?
What if human rights advocates didn't exist?
What if your dreams were realities?
What if you didn't dream of more and better?
What if the lives we live weren’t the ones we chose?
What if we could turn back the hands of time and alter our stories?

Why let our lives be haunted by the "what ifs"? Every day, we torment ourselves with what we should have done, could have changed and dealt with differently... My new commitment in life is to count my blessings, take everyday as a lesson to be learned, look forward to tomorrow, and appreciate my moment.



  1. I have enjoyed your blogs! Sorry it’s taking a while to follow- I signed up as a follower today!!! Yaaaaaa

    I love todays’ blog. I'm the one that is always panning on “the what If” both, in my personal and professional life. I’ve concluded we live in a world filled with difficult decisions (this is my decision of course and please should no one get offended) I feel the end result is that your decisions becomes cognitively demanding on many levels. It’s not just the simplest ‘What If’s”: The same thing has happened to nearly every consumption decision, from picking the right bottled water to blue jeans to the bigger things like stocks or what could have happened if I had taken the green light one minute before???. There are no simple choices. I feel like everything is complicated. Always optimistic and looking for the less complicated paths and follow…making effective decisions sometime means” making good decisions”,
    Sometimes I don’t know if people don’t know the profound effects of making decisions. Often times we go through life oblivious to what thoughts we are thinking and what actions we are taking. Decision we make in our days shapes our current reality (I like to think so??). It shapes who we are as a person because we habitually follow through with the decisions we make without even realizing it.
    Just a little of my own perception on the “what If’s” if it is even related to your Blog, which, I hope is it. Sorry for any misspelled words- I so highly depend on spell check for everything…Yikes


  2. Hey rosie,
    This hit me rite on the chest and may I say I glad I stopped my wat ifs and just went for what I felt was right to do. I woke up this morning and as I put my feet on my cold floor may I add lol I said no today is the day I speak up and I did and it felt great. So thanks to whatever guts I woke up with and ur blog my WHAT IFS will get a answer even if they are not the answers I want but the what if is no longer there. Thanks lil S
