wellness possibleThe other day I was hiking with one of my trainers, friends and inspirations, Michelle, talking about our goals.  She has many…one in particular could potentially happen on her birthday in September.  It’s a lofty goal…but she said…”it’s not IMPOSSIBLE that it could happen…therefore it is possible.”  I LOVED that!

How many times have we told ourselves it’s just not possible…when in reality, it is possible… because it’s not IMPOSSIBLE.

For example, breathing underwater without a device for me would be impossible…but it’s possible that I can breathe underwater with the help of science and great inventors.

It’s impossible for me to climb Mt. Everest without proper training…and likely impossible if I attempt in poor weather and other unexpected conditions…but it could be possible with the right training and circumstances.

The reality is almost anything is possible…anything.  That is a hard concept to wrap our heads around because upon that moment, we need to determine if we want to try to create the possibility!  That’s where the truth comes in… What are we willing to create and make possible?  What are we willing to say in our out loud voice…”I am going to try!” I dare say, it’s even a bit scary to know we have that potential!

To reign this in a bit; is it possible (I didn’t say “probable”) tomorrow you could wake up and for the first time in years (if ever)  drink 80 ounces of purified water, eat foods rich in antioxidants and nutrients and exercise for 60 minutes?  Is that fathomable?  Is it IMPOSSIBLE, or possible?

Maybe you wake up tomorrow and start to work on a project which will change your life…for the better…something bigger than you thought possible.  It is not IMPOSSIBLE that something exceptionally life altering could happen tomorrow…therefore, as Michelle would say…it’s possible!

Think outside the box and create your possibilities!
