What We Become.
I watched an old man standing at the intersection of 4th and Sparrow. In his hands, a simple sign – “SMILE. Nothing Is Ever Too Big to Handle”
He’s been there every day since the ‘love of his life’ passed away. “She was a teacher, you know – for troubled teens” he smiled proudly. “That’s what they call ’em, anyway – but she never believed it.”
For 45 years, she drove several hours each day – simply for the honor of making a difference; no more, no less.
“She had this sign hanging on her wall,” he said. “I figured if it helped all those kids there must be something to it.”
It was a simple message, though one certainly taken to heart. Nothing is ever too big to handle, and – no one is ever truly beyond our reach.
Consider for a moment, how often we accept the limits of our circumstance. As if a single moment could dare to secure the entirety of our existence.
We are our circumstances, yes – but we are also our potential. And the only limitations are those we set upon ourselves.
You are alive, my loves – and that means you can do anything, dare anything and dream any dream.
