Yes, You Can

August 11, 2015

By Marianne D.

Magic enters our life the moment we meet that special person. It is as if that person is the angel who will make all our dreams come true. And, for the longest time they remain magical and angelic, until we give them our hearts. At that moment, we begin watching our dreams turn into nightmares.

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; suddenly you’re doing the impossible.

~Francis of Assisi

I have found that though I am a certified cynic, albeit a harbinger of happiness, a person who claims to have seen many things, I am still amazed by the goodness I witness in humanity every once in a blue moon. Thank goodness for those moments, they keep me grounded in possibilities,…
