The Possibilities Are Endless, If…

We abandon our excuses

We stop saying “I can’t”…

We look between the black and white to find the grey…

We stay open-minded…

We start before we’re ready

We’re wiling to do the hard work it takes…

We don’t bend to peer pressure…

We take leaps of faith…

We see beyond the status quo…

We believe there are many solutions to any one problem…

We aren’t too attached to “the way we’ve always done it.”

We make peace with being uncomfortable

We consider life from multiple perspectives…

We love unconditionally…

We know what we want and where we are headed…

We take control of our actions, thoughts and decisions…

We see obstacles as opportunities…

We don’t get too precious about our reputations…

We learn to humbly accept correction…

We don’t let money (or lack of money) get in our way…

We’re willing to be creative and inventive…

We hold loosely to our possessions, ideals and ideas about how the world works…

We believe we can choose our own attitude.

We stop waiting for happiness (or love, or romance, or fill-in-the-blank) to happen to us…

We are always expanding our horizons…

We get good at asking questions and listening well…

We are both helpers and creators…

We take care of ourselves…

We take care of others…

We are not scared to be first, or to be last…

We fail with grace…

We laugh at ourselves…

We avoid blaming…

We’re willing to embrace less-than-perfect in all areas of our life…

We cultivate a childlike sense of wonder…

We believe the possibilities are endless…

  1. Yes, we need to get our little egos out of the way and see how many possibilities are opening up all around us. What a great way to begin the New Year. Thanks for this wonderful post!

  2. Digital pictures are the only place where we can find pure black or pure white.

    In our lives there are only grey tones. And I believe we should always remember about the darkness tones – the worst things. They create contrast in our emotions. We need shadow to see where the light comes from. Otherwise there may be even risk of killing ourself because of something what doesn’t really matter.

    (I’ve written few more words about this on my blog.)

  3. YES! I was just thinking about this the other day. And every single one of these points I have either thought about or have experienced in the last few years (I moved to Kenya). Thanks so much for this. It resonates with me!
