What Ifs

When we are young we don’t think in ‘what ifs’

We have no perception of danger.

We can be seen climbing to the top of a tree,

jumping down and occasionally talking to strangers.


As we get older we start to think in ‘what ifs’

What if I fall, what if what people tell me is true...

And many times the ‘what ifs’ stop us 

from doing the very things we once loved to do.


I’ve come up with a ‘what if’ solution for me...

Every time I’m about to say, “I won’t”

because I’ve asked myself, “What if I fall?”

I quickly ask...


“What if I don’t?”
