what if nobody knew, nobody cared

What if nobody knew? What if nobody cared?

These are two questions I often ask myself. When I think I have achieved something great…..and when I feel I have messed up. And these questions liberate me.

Ronaldo scores a hat trick. What if nobody knew? What if nobody cared? Would it still matter?

A grown man wets his pants. What if nobody knew? What if nobody cared? Would it still matter? Maybe a little bit (maybe more than Ronaldo’s hat trick) but would it really?

Looking from another perspective, maybe there are some things that would still matter. I gained some teeniest bit of knowledge about myself and the universe I am a part of. What if nobody knew? What if nobody cared? Would it still matter? I think it would.

So, before feeling too great or too small, it would be a nice idea to ask yourself these questions. Maybe it will help you concentrate on things that matter. Maybe it will liberate you.
