Each week, I bring you 4 gifts: 1 image, 1 quote, 1 idea, and 1 thing you might want to try, in hopes that they will encourage and inspire you in some good way. If this is helpful, share it with a friend. :)
Here is your 11:11 for today, and for the weekend.
Hope is a powerful thing. And hope is what happens when we realize that what Muhammad Ali said was right. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion.
Someone once said there was no way women would ever get the right to vote. There was no way human beings could ever fly. There was no way apartheid would ever end in South Africa. There was no way AIDS could ever be cured. There was no way we could ever touch the moon.
None of that was true.
So, if someone tells you, you’ll never be a millionaire, don’t believe them. If someone tells you this virus is going to win, don’t believe them. If someone tells you the system can’t be changed, don’t believe them. If someone tells you America’s best days are behind her, don’t believe them.
If someone tells you love is not enough, don’t believe them.
Expect to find three things over the next three days that will surprise and delight you, three things that give you hope for yourself, hope for our country, and hope for the human race.
They’re out there.
(Write and tell me when you see them.)
And be well,
P.S. The first thing I’ve found? A delightful eastern European young woman who’s found her way quite unexpectedly to a good life here in my small E. TN. town, and who clearly shines her Light everywhere she goes. How about you?
