The Year of ‘What If…’

by Starla J. King on January 2, 2011

Welcome to this deliciously sparkly promise-y new year!!

New beginnings, new determination, new “I swear… THIS year, I’m REALLY gonna [insert impossible resolution here]!”

This year, this still-wet-behind-the-ears-2011, I propose we try something different.  I propose we make 2011 the year of What If.

What if … we decide that satisfaction matters more than money.

What if … we find something to celebrate about ourselves each day.

What if … we step through the fear to be and show exactly who we are.

What if … we start allowing tears to hold the same beauty as a smile.

What if … we do business from the heart as much as from the head.

What if … we marvel daily at the live artwork in every leaf, flower, branch, and blade of grass.

What if … we use start using the words miracle, magical, and mystical again.

What if … we start each and every day by asking ourselves “What if…?” ?

What if…???

Starla, I love the What if…’s! We are really experiencing a HUGE shift in consciousness right now–it is expanding to consider so much more than what is right in front of us or the “bottom line”. Thank you for all you do to help us all remember that! Cheers! Whitney

The same THANK YOU back to you, Whitney! Here’s to both of us believing in that huge shift in consciousness.

Let’s remember to ask each other “what if…”

Amen. Brilliant.

Areweok, from your writing, I *know* you get the “What if…” possibilities. Spread the word and the energy!

Love this post, Starla!! One of my favorite mantras which I used during the time of Jodi’s illness, it’s not about asking “why?” But rather, “why not . . .” I’ll begin my morning asking, “what if?” Thanks for a beautiful new perspective of life.

I like this paradigm! When daily challenges arise I can see how flipping from “I can’t” to “what if” could be liberating and once liberated the possibilities are limitless. Thank you, Dear Starla!
