we must face the fact that we have a responsibility to own what’s possible. Opportunity abounds. And that’s both a scary and empowering thought*
Probability sounds good on the face of it. You know where you stand with probability and it will be the same tomorrow.
Probability is fine until it doesn’t work any more.
Obversely, possibility sounds much less likely. Yet every probability began life as a possibility. There is nothing that exists that has has always been this way.
We are children of possibility.
Especially when we see the possibility of someone or something being more human, more caring, more compassionate, more beautiful, more helpful … and we take responsibility for it – because now we can.
And humility is the best place to grow possibility: knowing who we are and what it is we can contribute.
