Leave The Door Open

You say not possible. I say not yet. Learn to leave room for the unimaginable. The problem is never the problem. The problem is how you think about the problem. It takes a lot of energy to be negative. Stop swimming up stream. Float. It doesn’t matter where it takes you. Cultivate that mindset, and you’ll win every time.

I am one of those annoying people who is eternally optimistic. If you know my story, you know that I have already lived though the unimaginable. Don’t believe me, I don’t care. You’ve probably lived though some pretty dark times as well. Yet here you are, living in light. But we often dim that light, by holding onto the past. And when we do that, we can’t effectively create our future. Sometimes we lived with the pain for so long, that when it’s gone, in a weird way, we miss it. It became our identifier. And when it left, so did our identity.

But there is good news. No identify, means we can be whoever we want. Clean slate before us, we can build what we want without having something anchored to us. Something that is keeping us from moving forward. I’m a realist. I have also worked in mental health for 36 years. I’ve seen the weak overcome. The strong fold. The terminally ill, outlive those who were not. The only thing for certain, is uncertainty.

Patience takes practice. And if you don’t practice, you will never know patience. And patience is the game changer. If you can be patient, if you cannot panic, you become the master of your destiny. Bad things will still happen. You will still have bad luck. But through patience, you will outlast the luck. And soon you will see that there is possibility. And now you’ve opened the door to the unimaginable.
