Anything Really Is Possible

What is possible? Anything.


Yes, really!

We can do anything we set our mind and heart to.

Of course, there is that little factor of FEAR to overcome. Fear of failure, fear of success, fear of ridicule, fear of criticism, fear of ... I'm sure you have a armada of words to insert there.

But what do we have to lose, really?

What is our alternative? To let FEAR keep us back? Then we can safely sit where we're at, saying, well, yes, but that's just too scary, so better to do what is "just okay", rather than soul-fulfilling and inspiring and spectacular.

Is this really okay with you? So-so. Safe. Secure.

Bored, stifled, asleep, frustrated, jealous, lethargic...?

No, not really.

The Turkey Vulture, Cathartes aura, Golden Transformer, spiraling upward, higher and higher, maybe a little wobble here and there, but self-correcting, not hesitating, not doubtful, soaring higher and higher, transforming all that needs to be transformed.

There are invisible currents, ready to spiral us higher and higher. But it requires Faith and Trust, knowing they are there. Taking those risks anyway!

Transform your fear into action, try it, if something doesn't turn out the way you'd hoped, then there is a lesson to learn, and the reward of knowing that you DID IT ANYWAY! And then you move onto the next challenge. Growing, stretching, pushing beyond what you think is possible. Embracing even more than you could have ever imagined.

...knowing that you are not alone on this journey, there are many of us reaching and stretching and pushing the limits everyday. Being part of a community ~ virtual or otherwise ~ of friends that will say to you, YES, GO FOR IT! or YOU ARE NOT CRAZY for wanting to pursue your dreams. Those are the ones you must seek out. I am one. I am seeking others of like mind.

Let's join together, encouraging each other higher and higher.

Beyond even our WILDEST dreams.

Are you with me?


  1. Fear - the great poisoner. This was a fearful day in New York City 8 years ago. From my roof in Midtown, I watched the Twin Towers pouring out smoke.

    Fear shortens life, and each day spent in fear is a day half-lived. Believe me, the older you get, the fewer days you want to spend half-alive. Thanks for reminding me of that!

  2. I'm with you! Fear has held me back most of my life. Bellydance helped me overcome that. I've still got a ways to go though, but this time I'm not afraid.

  3. Thanks for the inspiring thoughts and images, Tracy.

  4. I'm with you, Tracy! Why is it so difficult to fly and try? But it is ... for many of us, anyway! Thank you for your inspiring words and photos. Let's go -- fly!
