The Power of Potential

The last few weeks have not been kind.  My mother-in-law had to have four hours of emergency surgery in order to save her life and now has a long road of recovery ahead of her.  My daughter ran away from home and was placed in a mental hospital by a police officer for threatening suicide.  This all comes on the heels of losing my brother-in-law and having my own dad pull a gun on me in a dementia fueled rage.

Needless to say, the writing has suffered.

Nevertheless, I am still here.  Being hit a few times doesn’t guarantee a knockout.  I still have the power within me to make a difference in the world, create great things, and excel far beyond what others expect of me.

I’m not the only one who has this potential.  We all have it.

No matter what is going on in our lives, we still have the ability to tap into the power within ourselves and change our lives.  We can, at any time decide that this is the day we will do that thing that has been lingering in the back of our minds.  We can decide that this is the day that we will maintain a positive outlook on life despite all of the negativity around us.

It is so easy to hang our heads in despair and frustration when life starts whopping us a few, so easy to just give in when the world starts collapsing around us.

But it is during these times that I would challenge us to become more than our pain, to see it all as mere obstacles on the road to greatness.  In the words of one of my favorite songs, “Stars are only visible in darkness.”

Hmm.  Not the blog I was intending to write, but let’s go with it.

Until next time, always dare to dream!
