I believe that many things are possible, even in the face of seeming impossibility.
I have been called impractical and a dreamer. I have been called idealistic.
Those who love me become frustrated at times, because I don't do things the way they--or many others--do.
I am grateful that, despite their frustration, I continue to be loved.
And I will keep trying to do things the way a few highly select others suggest I might. I have seen them find success in their ways, and I admire them greatly for that.
I will also keep being impractical and idealistic.
I will keep dreaming.
I will keep believing that things are possible, in the face of seeming impossibility.
I can't seem to help myself. Truly. I have tried.
Is this always easy?
Is it always easy to remain tuned in to who I am, and what I have to offer the world?
No. Decidedly not.
It takes daily doses of mindfulness and inspiration. It takes concerted effort.
It requires that I keep putting on my big girl pants and showing up.
I've been told that I write entirely too often about "showing up," but honestly, that is the most important thing I do.
As is seeking inspiration.
Last night I listened to our most recent Dr. Lisa Radio Hour & Podcast ("Creativity," show #31) and found myself inspired again.
I was proud of what our team has accomplished in just over six months.
I was proud to offer a source of inspiration to the world.
Because I know that I am not the only impractical idealist out there.
I know that I am not the only dreamer. One need only listen to John Lennon to recognize that.
So as I seek the possible in impossibility, I need to keep showing up every day and open myself to inspiration.
And find hope in the certainty that I am not dreaming alone.
