What if today…


After a life wake up call, this is what it came from my heart trough a piece of paper.

What if…

What if today, I rescue my wings and fly.
What if today, I create my destiny.
What if today, I choose the life that I want.
What if today , I'm the change that I want to see in the world.
What if today, I took the less traveled path.
What if today, I speak out my feeling.
What if today, I face my fears.
What if today, I live my freedom.
What if today, I feel loved again.
What if today, I realize how lucky I am.
What if today, I believe in myself.
What if today, I become your angel.
What if today, I feel my heart beeping crazy.
What if today, I laugh like no one is looking at me.
What if today, I stop for a moment and enjoy the sound of the wind.
What if today, I do whatever I feel like.
What if today , I start living my life to the fullest.
What if today, I look at you.
What if today, I cry and laugh at the same time.
What if today, I forgive myself and accept the way I am.
What if today. I'm my own word.
What if today, I find you.
What if today, I thank you.
What if today, I love you.

What if today is the day!
There is not tomorrow, just today.

I love this, Maria! What an inspiring and exhilarating poem, shining with so much love and faith in our inherent goodness and courage. We DO have a choice how to respond--how to LIVE, and I too want to choose to "rescue my wings and fly"! I too want to "laugh like no one is looking at me"!

The photo of you with your arms spread wide is so inspiring too! I want every one to feel this freedom and exhilaration and I know you do too.

Thank you for expressing your heart and sharing it with us!



"I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being."
