Building Impossibilities

Hope 12/21/2019

Think of all the things that are an integral part of our lives. All the gadgets and technology that we can’t live without. We couldn’t even imagine those things existing a few years ago. Back then, that technology was considered impossible. Now, it is the norm.

Unless it was an accident, the impossible wasn’t created overnight. They were created by regular people going about their business and doing the things they believed were necessary. They worked within the bounds of reason and continued to build upon their foundations. One step led to another. And then, they were doing what was previously impossible.

The impossible is daunting and seems so far away, yet we are all capable of achieving it. Start small and then build. Keep building. Keep adapting. Make the plans, build the foundation, and then see how far you can go with it. It could take months, years, decades, or even more.

It starts with the seedlings of hope. It’s coupled with action and a relentless pursuit towards the goal. The impossible can become real. It can be done, and it can be done by you.

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. –St. Francis of Assisi
