There is this prompt that does the rounds that tells you to blog using the alphabet as your guide. Each letter becomes a blog. I decided that as a challenge, this would be good to get me blogging every day.
I = impossible
Impossible is nothing … that used to be my mantra. There was no task, no challenge that was out of reach if I put my mind to it. More often than not, I achieved those goals I had set my sights on.
I say it used to be my mantra, as these days I am of the opinion that there are things that are just impossible. Some mountains are not meant to be scaled. Some paths will remain overgrown. Some brick walls will never be dismantled or built.
Have I given up? Maybe. Some things just create too much anguish and hurt and it is best to leave them in the past or just stop trying to fix things. A number of years ago I was bullied and it had a profound impact on my life. That coupled with a whole bunch of things, brought me to the lowest point I had experienced. I have had points that proved to be lower and have managed better than I did back then.
I am looking for closure in that area but if I get nothing today, then I will consider it done. It is not meant to have closure if there is nothing. I will bandage the wound and let it take as long as it needs to heal without consistently picking at it.
That is my mantra going forward. The impossible can stay impossible. I will do what I am able with the time and resources I have, the rest can remain a mystery.
What impossible thing have you decided is just not worth the time and resource?
