There are an assortment of toys and objects that dot my workspace. I suppose some might see this as clutter, but not me. They bring humor and fun into my space. Some objects are sparkly like the glitter-covered Eifel Tower or bottle of green fairy dust. There are small word signs with messages like “relax” or “Things to Do." Then some pieces are just visually fun to look at such as my miniature slice of watermelon or snowman Pez dispenser. Also sprinkled around are motivational messages from fortune cookies, tea bag tags, pins and buttons. Today, one in particular caught my attention. It’s a clear, smooth glass stone, which is painted on the back with an Emily Dickinson quote that says, “Dwell in possibility.”
What would happen if we allowed ourselves to do just that- dwell in possibility? What if we let go of our fear? What if we didn’t permit our internal critic to speak? What if we embraced change and let the possibilities bloom? What if we allowed ourselves to linger just a little longer imagining what’s possible?
Sometimes we’re able to think large and project months or years ahead. Other times we’re more now focused on the coming hours or days. Take some time to suspend fear, silence the critic and let yourself dream. What do you want more of in your life? What do you want less of?
