You know you can relate to the long-held dream of something “impossible”.
In the past two weeks, I have totally potty trained two kids and begun running for bursts of 3:40- two things that, though I have lovingly daydreamed about for some time, francamente, I could not have envisioned actually pulling off even a month ago.
That’s how it happens, the surprises build inside of us, just waiting for an oportunidad para manifestarse. We never see them coming.
And sometimes, because we never see them coming, we refuse to set ourselves up for them out of fear of failure, pain, rejection, disappointment. Al fin y al cabo, it’s less heartbreaking to never try to run than it is to try to run and then fall short. Or is it?
I have a friend who loves to use the expression “Imagínatelo.” She says it with total asombro, total awe; the way she says it, you can’t help but imagine only the best-case scenario.
Try to hear it like that in your head. Once, and again, and anytime you need un poquitín de “Imagínatelo” to give you faith in yourself- in your abilities and possibilities- just when you need it.
