“It is the possibility that keeps me going, and though you may call me a dreamer or a fool or any other thing, I believe that anything is possible.”
― Nicholas Sparks



As children we sit and think about all the things would could possibly be when we grow up.

I want to be a police officer NO wait

I want to be a teacher NO wait

I want to be on TV NO wait

I want to be a doctor NO wait

I want to play football NO wait

I want to be a dancer NO wait

I want to be an entertainer NO wait

I want to be a chef NO wait

I want to be an astronaut NO wait

I want to be garbage man NO wait

I want to be a Mom NO wait

I want to be a Dad NO wait……

Like a child there were endless possibilities and no dream was unattainable



And you stop following your dreams

Life happens somehow and you forget how to dream

One thing that most adults are lacking now is the ability to imagine

Somehow along the way your imagination was snatched away from you

Do you see this bag?

This is an imagination bag that allowed you to create whatever your heart desired


Here are a few words from the song that goes along with the bag:

“I’ve been looking in my Barney Bag

And I found lots of things

Gizmos and gadgets, odds and ends and even some old string

So let’s ask ourselves a question what can we make today……”

Moral of the story the power to create is in your hands!!!!

Never ever stop dreaming!

Time to go for it again!



The Art of Change!


“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

–Nelson Mandela

Starting and stopping is a part of life that we can never get away from. When my child was seven years old she wanted to ride her bike around the corner with her older cousins but I said she had to learn to ride without training wheels first. She got on the bike and started peddling and before she knew it she was riding. The hard part was trying to figure out how to stop once she got started. She made it all the way around the corner with her cousins but once they made it back to the front of the house she realized she didn’t know how to stop. She was so use to riding with training wheels (which was her crutch) she never mastered the art of stopping and she fell to the ground. She screamed and was in a lot of pain because the crutch she was use to was not holding her up anymore. Many of us are holding onto the same temporary support of a crutch.


We feel the ground beneath us and we know we have hit rock bottom but we don’t take the necessary steps to change. Her choices were either to get up and try again or lay there and wallow in pain. Yes her scars are still evident on her knees but it has been eleven years now and she still knows how to ride a bike and she has mastered how to stop as well! It took time but she did it!

You may fall but get back up and keep trying! It will get hard! It will hurt! It will seem like it is not worth it sometimes! You may not see immediate results but keep going. Cry! Scream! Punch a pillow! But don’t stop trying because the end results will always be worth it! Nothing beats a failure but a try; so what are you waiting for. The art of change begins with the first step!
