And what being able to communicate with someone who wasn't in front of you, in this exact moment? The first phone was created only 150 years ago. And Internet just 65 years ago (internet as we know it about 20 years ago).
And cell phones only came out when Zak Morris got one on Saved by the Bell. I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking he was the coolest guy ever...and never imagining I would have a much smaller, sophisticated version than him just 10 years later (ok, fine like 20 years later -- let a woman feel young for a sec!).
These things, among so many others, have literally changed the way we live our life, each and every day. They've made life more convenient and incredibly connected. And yet, if you had told someone before the invention, they may have thought you were totally crazy....for dreaming something just well, impossible.
Do you think people in the desert could imagine there were lush beaches, with crystal blue water that seemed never end, on this earth? With streams of water literally falling from rocks so high?
How many family members yearned to visit their loved ones after they trekked to new lands? Or just hear their voice one more time? Now we can call someone at our fingertip, figure out the weather for the week, and travel to exotic place that take our breath away.
So what's the point, you ask? The point is this. It's simple.
Anything is possible.
Yes, for you. No matter how absurd it seems. Or how stuck you feel.
Don't try to practicalize (yes, that is a made up word) away. Trying to use "reason" or "reality" to say "that's impossible!" or "that could never happen!" or "that's just for someone else...."
Think back for a sec...can you think of a someone you personally know who experienced a miracle? A real-life miracle against all odds. Something that wasn't imaginable but when it happened, you were in complete and utter awe?
Maybe it even happened to you.
So give yourself a chance to believe for yourself.
Just for one moment.
This moment -- put aside all doubts, fears, reality checks, practicality...
and finish this sentence:
If there were no limitations of time, money, responsibilities, realities, anything -- I would....
I am so curious to hear what comes up for you. Post your sentence in the comment below and let's make the impossible...possible!
To a Life Beyond Measure AND Possibility,
