What if?

What if…
What if I…think on what isn’t sinking and ponder what is fine.
Can I focus on what is present, what is pleasant and what is kind?

What if I…think about today and cherish what I hold.
Draw attention to beauty and see what is sweet, rich and bold.

What if I… stop and think of things that matter and last beyond today.
To want what I have and not long for someone else’s way.

What if I…focus on what is, instead of what’s not and know what I have – is a lot.

What wonder would be discovered, what treasure would be found, if all my “What if’s” were tempered by the blessing of what already surrounds.

What if?
