If you believe in what you are doing. Then let nothing stand in your way. The best work of the world has been done against seeming impossibilities.
-- Dale Carnegie(Day 9) Last week Mary posted a tidbit about purpose and questioning. What are we here for? What is God’s larger purpose for us? Weren’t we put on this earth to do more?
I know these questions have plagued my mind lately. Is this a generational craze or a sign of the changing times? Unfortunately, I don’t have the answer. I can only speak to what has been happening for me lately.
I get the pleasure of working next to Mary daily and while we convene daily in each other’s cubicles to chat about life, we often find ourselves coming back to the questions above. We both feel this boiling urge inside to do more and be more for our families, friends and our earth. I feel as if God as answered my prayer with inconspicuous little blessings, signs and quotes and has begun pointing me in the right direction.
All of these blessings have made me take a step back in my life recently and have truly helped me discover my passion. I believe that it is without a doubt… junking! Huh? You ask?
But it is for so many more reasons than the fact that it’s a fun, creative outlet. Junking gives my partner Jamie Rae and I the ability to do well for our earth (keeping junk out of our landfills), for our families (teaching her adorable two girls the joy and freedom of crafting as well as following our passion), for others (reasonably priced super-cute home décor!) and most of all for our own strength and confidence. Armed with this newfound confidence and strength, I find myself able to help others through trying times in their lives. Could it be possible? Is it my purpose to speak and connect to others through…junk?! I’m still working on that answer.
A thought to take with you:
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
-- Mark Twain
Make waves friends. Make waves!
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in a world they’ve been given than explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact – it’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration – it’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

A big thanks to Mary for letting me be her guest blogger while she’s on her fantastic anniversary trip to Chicago!
I appreciate you.
