Is It Possible?

Do you believe in the possible?

No, not the impossible, like whirled peas or other such nonsense.

But the possible.

Is it possible to remember your fellow man and allow that other drive into your lane...even though the commute is long?

Would it be possible to let that young mother, the one with the screaming toddler, take cuts in front of you at the grocery store. Even though you've been standing in that line for a while now?

Could it possibly cross your mind to pay for a strangers coffee in line behind you?

Or maybe it would be possible to hold open the door...

Or simply smile at a stranger.

What would our world look like if we actually paid it forward?

Did you ever see that movie? It was dribble. Truly.

But the truth is, long before it became "cool" to pay it... others were already doing it. It's the whole do unto others... thing.

If it were possible to step, for just a moment, outside your comfort zone, would you?

Would I?

The New Year is upon us. Each year we consider the past and ponder the future. We decide to diet and exercise. We promise to be better people, to accomplish more, to work less, and spend time with the kiddies.

And it lasts for a month. Or a week. Or a day.

Then it's back to the ol' grind. But what if it were possible to truly change ourselves and our world?

It's an interesting thought.

A little over a year ago, my friend The Writer, announced that she was going to change the world. I chuckled at her, because really, change the world seemed a little outside the possible.

Funny thing is, she has.

Never say never and never think the possible is impossible.

For all things are possible if we actually get off our backsides and do it.

What's possible for you in 2011?
