What If?!

Do you ever wonder "What If?" I mean I surely do, but do you ever think we are always thinking about the "what ifs" and forgetting to live in the present. Are we given opportunities, but then watch the opportunities pass us by, because we are too caught up in the things of the past?

What if I stayed home and went to college? Would then I been with that someone or would it have fallen apart like other relationships? What if my family lived closer? What if I wasn't graduating? What if I can't find a job when I graduate? What if today were my last day on earth? Would I be ready? Would I have regrets?

I mean there are all these "what ifs", but shouldn't we be living in the PRESENT... Everyone has those "What Ifs?"; however, I've come to realize its what you do with those "What Ifs" that really matters most. I'm choosing to put those "What If's" behind me.

The PRESENT is where I have the most wonderful family a girl could ask for. Don't get me wrong we all have flaws and we have our disagreements, but they are still my family. I have a great little puppy that lifts me up when I am down with all the puppy kisses and love. I also have great friends who are always there for me. I am experiencing this once in a lifetime opportunity to go to my dream college. Yes, I have worries, but I can't dwell on them. I'm trusting that God will see me through this, and that in HIS timing everything will work out.

Join me and take this time to
LIVE IN THE PRESENT!

This is also a good reminder to just enjoy where you are at in the moment. Not counting down the hours until you leave work etc.

Definitely something I have reflected on often. Funny how easy it is to get lost in the past or the future...at a loss for today. Thanks for the award! I don't really post them, but I am encourage by the "nod" of support!

I couldn't agree more. Life goes by too quick to worry about the 'what ifs' By the way your puppy Aiden is very cute! We got a puppy about 6 months ago and in obedience classes the small dogs are her favorites! Which looks really funny 'cause she's a St. Bernard. Great Blog!
Blessings!!

I am CONSTANTLY thinking about the "what ifs" in my life. I almost constantly worry that I have gotten so far off "the path" that I will never find my way back. What if I had picked the right major the FIRST time in college. What if I had married that boy I loved in high school? What if I had never moved away from home?

We do get so caught up in these silly questions that we miss out on the blessings God has right in front of us. I just wish I knew how to stop myself.

I have to remind myself to live in the present every day. I am so prone to the "what-if's", and it is a serious effort to not let myself fall into that! :)
