Anything Can Happen If You Let It

Anything Can HappenThis is another inspirational saying I try to live by. At first glance the message, “Anything can happen if you let it,” may seem confusing. However, it simply means do not stand in your own way. You could be harboring negativity that results in you not believing in yourself or a treatment that could help you. It could mean you need to reach for higher goals because you’re not letting your dreams come true by limiting yourself.

If I had decided two or three years ago that nothing could ever help me and I gave up like some of my doctors did, I wouldn’t be feeling better today. I knew, or sometimes my mother reminded me, that I had to let the possibility of anything (in this case “anything” was a cure or a fix for my chronic pain) happening be available. I couldn’t limit my possibilities, I wouldn’t, and I won’t ever. I still believe that I can be anything I want, can do anything I want, because anything can happen if I let it.

P.S. This particular quote was taken from the musical version of Mary Poppins. My sister and I saw it at the Ahmanson Theater in LA and it was fantastic! So colorful and full of life. Easily the best play/show I’ve ever seen. By the end I was so filled with magic and hope I was waving to Mary floating above our heads on a harness calling her name.  I’m putting a link to the musical number Anything Can Happen. It’s an amateur video, but worth the shakiness to see the magic that unfolds.

What do you think of this quote? Have you ever stood in your own way? Do you love Mary Poppins? Let me know in the comments below! Rhymed again.

    I went and saw the stageshow a few years ago and loved it!
    I think I stand in my own way sometimes just due to being nervous, and maybe not thinking that I’m good enough in some ways, it’s very tiring!

      It really is an amazing show! Where did you see it at?

      I think we all get in our own way from time to time, but if we just keep working to overcome it and be our best selves (and maybe even take a risk or two) we can do it! I will be checking out your site as well, thank you so much for taking the time to read mine!

      Wishing you extra spoons!
