Pope John XXXIII-

“Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.”

Love that quote! So true. Live it. Loves...

I've been dwelling in that space of completing what I think I might not be able to accomplish, yet, continue to build and expand and DO IT anyway - despite me lil'mind. At times, i think everyone, and by everyone, i mean me, battles with the NO, no i couldn't do this but want to do that etc. I can remember in my past a time when the no and lil'monsters had me frozen in stuck because i listened to them - i "consulted" them. man. that does cause a lot of frustration. This inspired me to slay the fear so i could move forward, which happened just in a way i never expected. i expected the fears and no to vanish - be gone. no such luck. now i realize that the fears and no never go away, they do serve a purpose, just now i do not "consult" them and move forward doing the very thing their consultation would have advised against. love this quote and thank you for supporting the DREAMS & HOPES in the world w/this quote.

Reminds me of favorite by Robert Bresson, "Make visible what, without you, might perhaps have never been seen."
We should start a quote circle that shares inspiring uplifting messages along the creative journey - would be fun. Have a great day!
