But I Don't Know How!

But I don't know how!

Four words that never enter a child's mind before attempting, well... anything!

At least that's how it is with my young daughters. Oh, they can do anything,,, EVERYTHING... at least in their mind's eye. 

And then, in time, they do it before my eyes.

And the joy this brings... inspires me to be better.

Do they fail along the way? All the time! Does it matter to them? Maybe. But it rarely stops them from trying.

What about you?

This thing in your mind's eye? Do you know how to make it happen?

It doesn't really matter, does it?

Because we know that what matters...

is trying,

and failing,

and learning,

and growing.

It's not that you don't know how to do this thing in your mind's eye.

It's that you simply don't know how, YET.

But you will.

And when you do...

The joy YOU bring will inspire the rest of us to be better too.
