How Possible


Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!
Audrey Hepburn

What is amazing about human beings is how quickly we can say 'I can't' or 'It's impossible', before we've even tried. Today I had my embroidery with me at an early appointment and started doing it. Within minutes I had inquiries to what I was doing. I explained I was working on a portrait and without fail each one remarked that they wished they could do it. My reply is you can. Heads shook in disbelief  and the shutters came down. Later at lunch in our break room, I pulled out my tablet and started working on a drawing class I am taking on Creativebug.com. Again same curiosity and response. This time I was ready. I had extra drawing paper and pencils. I went back to the beginning of the short lesson and had four of us drawing an apple and a spool of thread. At the end of the segment everyone looked down and were pretty stunned. Minds opened and you could see enlightenment come in. It went from impossible  to how possible. Not a bad day at all.
