It's All About the Possible Art Everyday Month Day 27

Even when the rest of the world is going crazy.....and the truth is hard to see, when you make time to create, all the nonsense goes away.  You can go anywhere in the world or in a land of make believe and get submersed in a garden of possibility, if you allow it to come to you.
Really, it's okay to believe.
Be brave by putting one foot in front of the other to get to where you are supposed to go.
Don't let anyone tell you your dreams are impossible or you're not going to make it.  It IS possible.  
Even if your dreams turn out a bit differently then you originally thought they would be, or the road you take has a few turns and detours along the's all meant to be so you can be the best at what you do, and build a solid foundation for all that is to come.

You need to start somewhere though.  The beginnings don't always have a lot of direction but they are exciting and adventurous.    You know you are going on a fantastic journey and have a vague idea of where and what you want to do along the way....

And then it begins to come together and you see the magic
happen, some parts are not as clear as they started out to be but yet
they are there and you are  building the foundation,
wondering whats next and hoping it'll turn out like you intended, but you
don't know and are a bit fearful that you might not make it.

But you do.  And for the rest of the world who didn't believe you could do it, and didn't have what it takes to stick with it and make something of your dreams, tell them just look at you now...because you were brave and did it anyway, and saw all the conquered and made something imaginary , something in side your head come alive.
It's okay to believe in yourself. 
It's okay to let the world go and just concentrate on yourself and your immediate surroundings for a bit.
It's okay to be brave, in fact, it's necessary to stay on the path you were meant to be on.
It's okay to get to the middle and not know if it's all going to be okay.
You get thru the middle part and the not so pretty and fun part, trust me.
And then at the end,  you can sit back and say, yes this is exactly where I was meant to be.
