The impossible creeps up on us like a glacier moving across a mountain, time is given so the impossible can begin to feel like the norm - little moments and actions over time is how its metamorphism takes place.
This time erodes the realisation that the impossible has been overcome, as we rarely look at the past life of normal and see that it too, once spawned from an impossible thought.
Normal sets in when we stop labelling the task or outcome as impossible – waking up early every morning, leaving the security of a job, packing the family up and living overseas for a year – whatever our past impossible was, a change in action made it possible, made it the norm.
Impossible has been overcome in the past and there will be new impossibles in the future. They too will be overcome when we forget that they are impossible, we label them possible, and they become our normal.
Between this point and that, lay self-imposed fears, the same fears that we build in front of all impossible desires – fears, individual to each human being, but mirrored by all.
Fears suck the marrow out of today and leave uncertainty and complacency. They push our impossible desires to tomorrow, where normal doesn’t reside.
We can do the impossible when we allow it to become our normal, our today: live immediately.
