The Only Way Forward


“You’re worried about what-ifs. Well, what if you stopped worrying?”
(Shannon Celebi)

“What if my son hadn’t tried drugs?” But he did.

“What if my wife had more respect for me?” But she doesn’t.

“What if my boss didn’t freak out so much?” But he does.

These answers may sound defeatist at first, but hear me out. By accepting these difficulties as reality, you can start to address them with action rather than spending your time wrestling with pointless “what ifs”. Today, stop projecting, worrying, and fearing. They just aren’t helpful, and they actually keep you stuck.

Instead, focus on your part of the situation and what you can change. It’s the only way forward.

Peace begins with pause,
