What if...

What if…
We have those things or those people in our lives that make us happy, give us joy, and/or serve as the very rock on which we stand in the tough, not so magical times. 
We all have goals, dreams, aspirations, and we plan for our future.  Yet day in and day out, we’re reminded that life is not, nor will it ever be perfect.  
“Stuff” gets in the way, yet we continue to strive for the perfect life, the perfect job, the perfect salary, with the perfect someone. 
That gets old, and life gets tedious…why…because there’s no such thing as “The Perfect” anything.  It’s a myth in which we wrap our very hopes, dreams, and often times our every thought.
Life, here on Earth, isn’t perfect.  It never will be perfect.  However, the higher power to which we look for hope, love, salvation, and peace…is perfect. Therefore 'looking up' should be our focus.
Rather than striving for the perfect, instead we should reflect on the absolute best things or people in our lives.  We should reflect this week on whom or what makes us smile, at the very moment the thought of them enters our mind.  Whom or what allows us to be…not merely to do…but to really be who we want to be
What if those things or those people were taken away from us tomorrow?
Let’s give thanks this week, for those things and those people in our lives that are the absolute BEST part of our day and the absolute BEST part of our lives. 
Perfect will never happen, but those things and those people (you know the ones), they will always be the best…be thankful for them.
Looking up, this Thanksgiving…and wishing the OneMoreStepRevolution Community  a very safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday.
Thanks, for the road…
Thanks to my family: My Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother-In-Law, Aunts, Uncles, Grandmother, and Cousins – you’ve not only shaped my mind, heart, and character, but you’ve also been the very source of joy, inspiration, and love that always makes me feel better about life, no matter how imperfect it is, you’re the best.  It is for that very joy, inspiration, and love that I am extremely thankful.
