As I have been dreaming big lately, I have been thinking a lot about the impossible vs. the possible. I have come to realize that there is very little that is impossible – there are many things that are highly improbable, but this does not make them impossible. I think this is critical for us to remember when we are looking towards our future. I wonder how many advancements never would have occurred if someone was not determined to change the improbable to the possible. If the Wright brothers had given up, we would not have air travel today – it was not easy, but not impossible.
At the moment I am looking at job and educational possibilities, all of which seem highly improbable from my current vantage point. At times, this can be very depressing. Yet, if I continue to learn to persevere, understanding that the highly improbable may become the possible, my focus and determination are renewed.
Today, 158 days ’til 40, I will continue to remind myself that the highly improbable can indeed become possible.
