Why do we, if ourselves, all the time? If I would have done that or if I had said that, and; on and on it goes.
This week alone, I heard the following.
Do you see that house on the corner? If I would have bought it when I first saw it, it just sold again for $86,000 more!
If only I had bought three months ago?
If only I had put up my house for sale instead of 2 months ago.
If I would have seen that last week, I could have bought it, now it is sold, I loved it.
- That was a reasonable price if I had only been ready.
- If I could only get my wife, husband, parents, children, guru, mentor, lover, minister, cat, to agree with me, I would have bought it!
I if myself as well if I stand in that checkout line, will it be quicker than the other 3? If I don’t work out this morning, what are the consequences? If I do this, if I do that?
I read that iffing is an average human (emotion) (reaction) (call for help) (uncertainty) or all of those.
I do not have the answer, but I vow not to use the word if today!
If I remember!
Note: If you have more ifs you would like to add, let me know if you can!
