ATLANTA, January 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Soul-searching through books and music created by great minds of the past and present
What if there were an online magazine exclusively for people with the desire to change their lives and face the future as the person they were born to be? What if the magazine aspired to address modern challenges with the best that human thought has produced, bringing together literature, poetry and music spanning centuries and yet to be written? And what if every article in this magazine provided new, hopeful perspectives and, ultimately, an attitude upgrade? All Things If™ is here.
In an overwhelming world, we often lose touch with some intangible things-our happiness, our compassion, our integrity, our best selves. We need to be reminded there's an approach to life that gives us everything we want at no cost to our honor. Many of the ideas and guidelines are already out there.
Founder and managing editor Misha Shengaout says, "I've had my share of life's lumps just like everyone else. We all have to do some serious soul searching to keep making sense of why we're here and how to keep moving forward. Some of the brightest minds in history struggled with these questions, so I've always dreamed of a place to match our existential frustrations with the inspiring answers they've already found. One of the greatest examples is Rudyard Kipling's famous poem "If", where-in 32 short lines-he defines the ideal of human character. The poem gives our magazine its name."
Socrates said, "Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for." With those words in mind, All Things If features original fiction, non-fiction, editorials and poetry, as well as book and music reviews leading subscribers to thought-provoking authors and musicians, including relevant fiction and non-fiction works by international writers never before translated into English.
To celebrate the magazine's launch, All Things If will soon announce its inaugural writing contest, "IF you can write…" The contest is open to all, with cash prizes for non-fiction and fiction. Writers will be asked to incorporate one of the ideals expressed in the poem "If" in their submissions. Time to discover what truly great minds think!
