What You Might Have Been

Day 6

It is never too late to be what you might have been. – George Eliot

I stumbled upon this little beauty a few weeks ago while reading Rebekah Lyons’ Freefall to Fly. Upon finishing up our first week of truth, I wonder if it resonates with you the way it does with me? Does it make you wonder if there is still room, still time to be who you might have been if life hadn’t happened?

I wonder if we can open our eyes and our hearts and our minds wide enough to consider that all of life up until now was not meant to hinder our hopes and our dreams, but to point us toward them.

Does it make your heart beat fast – the possibility of it?

It makes mine beat very fast. It makes me feel afraid, and hopeful, and afraid again.

It means that I will have to face my deepest insecurities and embrace all of my inadequacies as gifts. That I will need to let go of all my plans and expectations and fling myself into the possibility of the same life lived differently.

What might you have been? What might you still be? Are you brave enough to explore the possibilities?

I’m not sure that I am, but I am choosing to believe that I actually can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. [Philippians 4:13] And I’m ready to do a little digging.


Go get Freefall to Fly. I’m serious. The epitome of Real Truth right there for you to swim around in for a bit. Rebekah Lyons is approachable and classy all in one swoop – which is no small feat. Also, she is practical and couldn’t we all use a little more practical in our lives?

We’re moving on to a little more real life tomorrow. Happy Sunday!
