Wouldn’t It Be Nice If…………
We could go in so, so many ways with that statement.
Before I go forward I encourage everyone to fill in their personal desire after the ‘if’. Perhaps go so far as to make it your focus for everyday of the New Year. Making an effort in whatever small way to bring that ‘if’ to a clearer reality.
I have my own blank filled in after ‘if’ that I want to consciously pursue realizing I’m only one person but what little I can do everyday has the same effect as putting a drop of water in a bucket continually…….eventually there’s a full bucket.
But, now…….I’m thinking of you. I know that sounds silly……I’m thinking of you. How could I, I don’t know you. Well some of you I may. But nevertheless right now I’m thinking of you.
Wouldn’t it be nice if………..
Take that idea. Just take it, don’t make one of those silly New Year Resolutions that fall by the wayside after around 45 days……take the idea of ‘wouldn’t it be nice if……’ and step by step, day by day spend just enough time doing something toward its eventual outcome.
Lots of times there’s no evidence of what we do having any effect. The next time in the city, take a look at that tall building. Beneath it is something that can’t be seen with the naked eye……a solid foundation. A lot of mundane work not nearly as thrilling as working the beams 40 stories in the sky. But oh so necessary. Because without that foundation there is no 40 story beam walking.
Overlooked in our lives is the little things that are so importantly connected to the big things. Many of us miss our mark because we bored out on the little things that we necessary to carry and sustain the bigger visions of our lives.
Me, I’m in the same group. I’ve all along overlooked the importance of the little things. Now, on the downslope of life, I realize that and I’m not sitting here feeling regretfully somber with a ‘it’s too late’ attitude. Nope, I’m digging in!! Working on the little things that will sustain my bigger things all the way to the conclusion. Doing the little things everyday that are important to doing the bigger things that ‘I’ want to do.
Now, this blog wasn’t going exactly where I’ve come to. No, I was gonna bring an idea of unison. It was for all of us, doing just one little thing to accomplish a much greater purpose.
And that still can be a measured point of my writing this morning. And here it is….
“Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all live in peace with one another.” Simple, but yet huge. When I talk of peace, I earnestly mean it. Does it mean that I never get angry or fussy? No! I’m as humanly flawed as the next.
BUT!!! What I’m after here is that we as individuals everyday act or even say something that in its smallest conceptual way is a piece of the foundation of a much larger productive and secure life. “World Peace”
“Wouldn’t it be nice if we all lived in Peace.” My objective. I’m not waiting for the New Year. I’m working that NOW!
Join me along with your ‘if’……….
Peace, love, and beaches,
