Possibility

“The future belongs to those who see possibilities before they become obvious.” – John Sculley

FOT2284There is something magical about watching a baby delight in his wonderment. He will look at his hands and feet with amazement, almost as if he truly knows the miracles of his appendages and is dreaming about where these legs will take him and what his hands will touch. He approaches his world with hunger and curiosity. He is not afraid to reach out for what he wants. And once he grabs hold he isn’t quite sure how to let go.

Imagine our lives if we incorporated a few of these baby qualities back into our lives.

Imagine if we truly looked at life for the miracle it is.

Where have your legs taken you today? Did you use them to travel? Did you take a walk or run? Did you dance? Did you enjoy what your legs did for you today?

What are the textures your hands have touched? Did they feed you? Did they wipe the tears from your eyes or someone else’s? Did your fingers point the way for someone? Did your hand hold another?

Live life in childish wonderment. Study and ask questions about that in which you’re curious. Never stop learning.

Grab onto your dream and don’t let go.

    Loved, loved, loved that, Suzi!!!!! And I agree! This why I so enjoy being around children because they are a constant reminder of that. Also, I never want to lose the child-likeness inside me because it keeps my heart center young.

    FAB post!!!

  2. Loved this post Suzi! I’ve been spinning my wheels lately, feeling restless and not knowing why – need to shake things up a bit – thank you for the inspiration! 😀

  3. Ha, this is kinda like what we in Nia call Beginner’s Mind. Approach things as with a mind of a beginner. Let things be new. Be open to leaning something again, opening to the possibility of learning it in a new way or seeing it in a new way. I just read your “When You Can’t See For Looking” post and so to me, this post kinda ties in with that, approaching “life with clear vision”. Can’t be any clearer than a baby’s wonderment . . . nothing to cloud it up! 🙂
