I have to tell you about this ancient story I heard recently called “Maybe.”

There was a wise man who owned a bunch of horses. One day, one of his horses ran away. Everyone from the town came to his house and said, oh my gosh, that’s so horrible. Your horse ran away.

He replied, “Maybe.” 

The next day, the horse came back and brought with it seven wild horses. Again, everyone came by and they said, “Oh my gosh, that’s so amazing. You got seven wild horses!”

He replied, “Maybe.

The following day, his son was riding one of the wild horses, fell off, and broke his arm. Again, everyone came by and said,  “Oh my gosh, that’s so horrible. Your son broke his arm.”

He replied, “Maybe.

The day after that, the military came by to take able-bodied men from their homes to join the military. But because his son had broken his arm the day before, he couldn’t join.

Was the past year horrible? Maybe. But maybe not.

The Great Reset

There have been moments in the past year that were devastating. Devastating for families, communities, and humanity. But think about this: When we become physically ill with a fever, a migraine, or something else, we have to physically rest. And by resting and taking care of ourselves, some would say we raise our vibrational energy. We heal. So I have to wonder — is this what it looks like when the world heals together? 

A year ago, we never could have predicted where we are now. May we remember this as the era we were required to slow down and heal. We don’t need to worry about the future because we can never know what it holds. There’s no need to run so fast. 

Final Thoughts

One day you’re going to wish you were exactly where you are right now. Enjoy your family and the place you call home, and remind yourself the next time something bad happens that it only may be. 

Only time will tell,
