Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Today I want to talk to you about the big elephant in the room that eats us up every day of our lives. It’s us.
We spend more than half of our lives regretting the steps we have taken in life. We keep asking ourselves, what if? What if I did this differently? What if I did not take this step? What we don’t realize is that these what ifs of our lives hinders us from fulfilling the “what I can” in our lives. Every day we wake up rerunning our failures and wishing that we could go back and do this different.
My dear lovelies, the only thing that stopping us from moving forward and fulfilling our dreams is the “what ifs” and its core cause, fear. Remember what FDR said, “Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself”. It is our fear that paralyzes us from moving ahead in life – the fear of failure, the fear of disappointment, the fear of the unknown as so on. When we see a new food that we never tried before, we hesitate – what if I don’t like the taste; what if it tastes bad; what if I am disappointed.
One thing that I have learned from intentional living or mindfulness meditation is to savor the current moment and not let our fear get in our way. Of course I still get bogged down by the “what ifs” in my life, but I have learned to acknowledge them and move on. Furthermore, I try to make sure that my fear does not lead to more what ifs. When my mind asks “what if I am disappointed”, I tell myself if I don’t try I will never know. We all learn from the mistakes in our lives. If you really pay attention, you will see that what we consider as our mistakes, may likely be just happy accidents.
My dear lovelies. I want to leave today by asking you one thing. What do you do when you are bombarded by the “what ifs” in your life? How do you address them? I look forward to your valuable inputs.

America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to my gofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
PLEASE DONATION ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic.
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring contents to you.
