An antidote to the negative what ifs that attack us all from time to time.
What if all of the good things came true?
What if you got everything you ever dreamt of?
What if you got that big white studio with the skylights that make it always looks sunny? What if your dog sat beside you in the basket? What if that studio was part of a shop and people were always coming in?
What if big galleries wanted to display your work? What if you got a loyal following? What if people felt happy just by looking at your art? What if your art could bring back good memories? What if your art brought back loved ones?
What if you got the chance to see more and more beautiful wildlife? What if you got to go on a safari? What if you got to see a kingfisher in real life?
What if you went on amazing long walks with your man and your dog? What if you got to crunch through leaves and watch the birds fly? What if people recognised you and were happy to see you? What if you smiled at people and the smile went into your eyes and into your soul? What if they smiled back?
What if bad times led you to places you could never imagine? What if they are just a test? What if they are actually good in disguise?
What if you got to teach incredible people how to paint? What if you inspired people? What if you brought hope back to people? What if you could help other people overcome their problems?
What if all the good things came true.
That’s my antidote, what’s yours?
