When Alice in Wonderland came out, we went to see it the very first day. In costumes. Of course.
One of my favorite parts of the movie came directly from a line in the book,"Why sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
It rang true because I've often found myself giving up before even starting, with the excuse that it could never work, so I shouldn't waste my time trying.
So I came home from the movie with the idea for these journals, as a daily challenge to believe in six impossible things and stretch our minds a bit.
I added several of my favorite quotes throughout.
I do know that over time, and honestly with the help of this blog, I've learned to reevaluate all the can'ts in my life and persevere with the seemingly impossible (and oftentimes ridiculous).
Can I make a chocolate house with stained glass windows lit from the inside?
Is it remotely possible to carve my own face (curly hair, glasses and all) on a pumpkin?
Will I be able to cross the finish line after completing the Warrior Dash, a competition that involves crawling through mud and over walls and jumping through fire at the end?
(I guess we'll have to just wait and see!) BTW, if you listen to this loud enough, you can hear my crazy chuckling after I haul my butt up and over that thing.
So won't you join me in challenging those things that we label as impossible?
Because who's to say what is possible?
And wouldn't our lives be bigger (and infinitely more interesting) if we could learn to believe in and strive towards the impossible?
Imagine what we could achieve.
UPDATE- I made it! Click here to see pics from the day.
