If only...

Why is there a tendency to spend a lot of time in the 'if only..." zone?
If only I had done this.
If only I had said that.
So what "if"?
It's only speculation after all.
The "if" creates the ideal scenario; the "would have happened ..." We know very well life isn't a Hollywood movie where we can step back and change the circumstance or action to see how things would turn out.
So we hold onto "if only" and it becomes an anchor wrapped tightly around ankles.
The more we feed the "if only" the heavier the anchor and the harder it is to move forward.

Let go of the "if only."
Grab a hold of the here...now.
That's what is real.
That's where the magic happens.
That's where life is.
