Happy Monday, friends :)
fyi - I can type that with a smile because I'm not writing this Monday morning.
I saw this quote (not to mention gorgeous depiction of it) and had to share.
First of all, I'm a total sap and love the inclusion of "child" in the statement. It sounds so warm and caring and loving and comforting.
Second of all, I loved Shel Silverstein's books growing up. Where the Sidwalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, and Falling Up were among my favorites.
And, finally, (most obviously) the sentiment is fantastic.
Anything can be.
I put so many limitations on things. They can't be because of time, money, and all sorts of other constraints.
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.
If I look at my life right now, so many things have happened that I never would have thought possible.
I am so much stronger than I ever knew (physically, mentally, emotionally). I have a pretty freakin fantastic group of friends surrounding me (I always thought myself a loser or a not-cool-kid). I may not love my job, but I have been working here for 2.5 years (I have a tendency to hop from one thing to another and not just stay put). I am dating a wonderful man that hopefully someday will be more than just a boyfriend (um hello I was one of those little girls dreaming about someday weddings).
If all these things could happen, anything can happen.
What else can I will into being? I very much believe in the universal law of attraction... so if I can create my own reality and build my own life... what do I want to do, to be?
After all, it can be anything.
Does this quote resonate with you at all? Am I the only one who loved Mr. Silverstein's poetry? Please share below.
