This week’s #3ThingsThursday edition is all about looking ahead at the endless possibilities that await! Not just in some far distant future, but today. Today, it’s possible to be joyful. Today, it’s possible to believe you can create the life you truly desire and love the one you have. Today.
This linkup is hosted by Pink Chai Living, The Write Balance and Love Laugh Mirch. If you’re a blogger who’d like to link up, please do by visiting one of the hosts and dropping your link! I look forward to reading your post!
1. Miss Artsie
In 2006, I was looking for an aesthetician and was referred, with great enthusiasm, to Navkiran Sokhi. At the time, Nav was working in a salon. I wrote a little more of my history with Nav here, but in a nutshell, I am so proud of her for following her dreams and opening her own salon in beautiful downtown Vancouver.
While getting to know Nav, I have also grown close to her daughter Sifti. Sifti is a sweet, creative, loving young woman whom I have had the pleasure of watching blossom over the last few years. Graduating next month in graphic design from The Art Institute of Vancouver, this illustrator, designer and artist is already in high demand. She is going to have no shortage of beauty to create for clients and customers! This is one of my faves:
We had such a fun chat this weekend and all I could think of was the word ‘possibilities’!
2. J.K. Rowling’s Harvard Commencement Speech
I know, you’ve probably already heard or read this speech. It’s just too funny and too full of possibility to not mention here. I love her dissection of failure as a platform for ‘stripping away all the inessentials’, and being set free by realizing that ‘rock bottom’ was a ‘solid foundation’ from which she rebuilt her life. If that doesn’t scream possibility, I don’t know what does.
She says it all so well; I strongly encourage you to invest in these 20 minutes whether you have heard/read this before or not.
3. A journalling prompt
Please take out a piece of paper and a pen. Close the lid on this humming machine (or put away the phone). I thank you for reading this post, but for the next 10-15 minutes, I want you to go away, physically and mentally, with just this sheet of paper and pen. At the top of the page, write “Full of Possibility” and then fill the rest of the page (and more if you get to it) with whatever comes to you from this prompt. It could be fiction or non-fiction, poetry or prose. It could be a list of all the things that feel possible to you in this moment. Just write. Set a timer and don’t stop until the timer goes off. Keep your hand moving, even if to ask “What should I write?” repeatedly. It’ll come.
Tell me in the comments: What possibilities await you today?
