dream the impossible?

22 May

Do you have a bucket list? I don’t have a bucket list but I do have a list of 100 things I’d like to do. Some of the things on my list feel impossible to carry out, but lately I’ve wondered what impossible means.

The dictionary definition states, “Not possible; incapable of being done, of existing, etc.; unattainable in the nature of things, or by means at command; insuperably difficult under the circumstances; absurd or impracticable; not feasible. “[1913 Webster]

Impossible is not a word I use often in my vocabulary, but if I do it would be in reference to something I could not do physically, mentally or due to monetary circumstances. I have been challenged to alter my thoughts on what I believe impossible.

A friend and I meet once a month for what we call our Creative Blitz. During our time together, we head to Starbucks, buy our respective drinks and pick the best seats for our meeting. We’ve created our own lists of things we want to move forward with in our lives. There are six items on my list and each month I add action items. 

When it was time for our second meeting, I felt stagnation setting in. In reviewing my list however, I realized I had focused on five things on my list! I left our meeting feeling hopeful that I was one step closer to actualizing my list.  🙂  It’s amazing to me that by simply listing what I want to carry out, and being held accountable, I’ve made some progress!! 

motivation, where are you?

29 Jan

Today feels like one of those days. My to do list is full, kids are at school, no excuse to still be in my jams, but here I sit typing on my blog. I’ve checked my home email, Hotmail, Facebook, two job sites, read a few blogs and there are 5 other job sites to check. I highly doubt any jobs posted since last night at 10:00pm, but if I don’t look I will never know!

My chair is warm, my butt starting to go numb from sitting here for over an hour and I’d love a latte. If I had a bell I’d probably ring it for someone to get my vanilla latte remembering that I like it grande, solo, decaf, non-fat, half-sweet. Where is Mark (aka Taylor) my latte boy when I need him?!

Motivation is fleeting. Some days I have tons and other days it seems to be stuffed under a couch cushion, hiding in the closet or locked in the basement.  Perhaps if I call out I will find it running towards me along with my two dogs. Would be cool if it actually jumped up to give me a hug and a chin lick too!

Seriously though, I need to find it. There are things I’ve put off . I’m quite certain my Mother-in-law would appreciate her jams, new pants, socks, undies and sweater she left here at the beginning of January when she flew home. She’s either too polite to ask why we haven’t sent her things or it is possible she has forgotten.  I could of course leave this up to her son, however, she’d be picking them up this summer when she visits.

I’m going to do it! I will visualize myself crossing items off my to do list. I will sign off my blog, make my own latte and head upstairs to the say good morning to the guinea pigs. Of course none of that is on my list, but I’ll have a little caffeine kick as I watch Ginger & Cookie do their dance of joy.

Words are powerful and can be used to heal or harm. I believe in using my powers for good. Compassion, celebration of Gaia and our shared humanity, random kindness, the wonder of the human spirit, the poetry of empathy, all inspire me daily.
