Imagine what life would be like if you stopped thinking "If I could have...."

If I Could…If I could catch a rainbow I would do it just for you And share with you its beauty On the days you're feeling blue.If I could build a mountain You could call your very own A place to find serenity A place to be alone.If I could take your troubles I would toss them in the sea But all these things I'm finding Are impossible for me.I cannot build a mountain Or catch a rainbow fair But let me be what I know best: A friend that's always there.- Sandra Lewis Pringle

________________________________________________________________________If I could,,,,,,,,Just recently I overheard a patient talking with one of my staff members. It was a conversation about some of the events that she had recently been through as she struggled with aging parents. If I could….. was the opening phrase of her conversation. ‘The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a glowing depth, beauty, and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident.” Sir Hugh WalpoeIf I could have been there more, done more, seen more. If I could have thought differently or been more alert I could have……. The list went on and on. As I listened I noticed her body language change. She appeared older and worn out. Her energy levels decreased and she became a different person. “Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. “William JamesIf I could…. begins many of our sentences in life. How many times have your found yourself asking that same question. We seem to focus on the could haves instead of focusing on the things we do, the actions we take, the love we share. Our focus seems to be outward wishing we had done this or that instead of seeing the wonder of what we have done with our lives. “For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation. “Rainer Maria RilkeBeing there for another is a powerful way to live. Being there shows openness and a willingness to be a part of their world. It allows you to show love, to give compassion, and to influence another’s life in ways that you can’t imagine. It produces freedom to become whole and to use that wholeness to create powerful change in your world. “Not merely an absence of noise, Real Silence begins when a reasonable being withdraws from the noise in order to find peace and order in his inner sanctuary. “Peter MinardIf I could… a phrase that limits your potential and causes your inner voice to be quieted. Quieting this small still voice prevents you from hearing the Spirit’s wish in your life thereby preventing you from experiencing the freedom of being. “To be nobody-but-yourself -- in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else -- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.” e. e. cummingsBegin to move from the mindset of ‘if I could’ to the reality of ‘I am here for you’. Doors and minds will open that you thought were closed. Changes will occur that will astound you. Messages will be received that give you encouragement to continue on your path of growth. “The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind. “William JamesBe what you know best and allow others to see who you are. This alone will give you great comfort and allow you to live your life in peace.
