Imagine all the many possibilities 0
Imagine if we told our loved ones how much we appreciate them and expressed that gratitude on a regular basis. Imagine if instead of holding on to positive praises for some day in the future, we expressed our love today.
Imagine if we said sorry more, forgave more, accepted responsibility more and took accountability more. Imagine the pain and scars we'd help heal, both in ourselves and in others.
Imagine if parents taught their children that regardless if you're a boy or a girl, it's okay to cry, to feel pain, to fall down . to be human. Imagine the emotionally intelligent men and women these children would grow up to be.
Imagine if we worked on loving ourselves first before entering a relationship with another. Imagine how much healthier our relationships would be.
Imagine if we had the courage to speak the truth, to hold our friends and loved ones accountable, even when it makes us feel uncomfortable to do so.
Imagine if women helped boost other women up, and focused on supporting each other versus competing against one another and tearing each other down.
Imagine if we decided to redefine the status quo and create new norms. Imagine if we our definition of success was based not on the size of our bank accounts, but on the wealth of our relationships and contributions to society.
Imagine if we stopped chasing the wrong things.
Imagine if we stopped abusing substances, tranquilizing our pain and over satiating our senses. Imagine if instead we looked deep within to figure out the root of our insecurities, our shame, our restlessness and our fears.
Imagine if we dealt with these issues instead of avoiding them with distractions. Imagine what healthier beings we would be, and as a result the healthier relationships we would have.
Now, imagine if each and every one of us decided today to live life this way. Imagine what a world of beauty we'd create. Imagine such a world where such positivity and compassion didn't have to live only in our imaginations, but was an everyday reality.
Call me a dreamer, but this is the world I want to live in. Now, what do you say we go and create it?
