I did something the other day that I have never done in 58 years. I had thought about it before but had always thought it would be too difficult to learn, and besides why bother?
But then I did it, and it turned out that I did a pretty good job of it. And perhaps you are wondering what it was that I learned to do. I taught myself to tie a bow tie. And maybe you’re thinking: so what’s the big deal? Which would lead me to believe that you don’t know how to tie a bow tie.
And I realize that it’s not like I taught myself to do brain surgery, but there might be fewer people in Halifax who can tie a proper bow tie than who can do brain surgery. Just saying.
I have an occasion to wear a bow tie coming up in February and I know I could have gotten a pretied bow-tie, but I’ve prided myself in the fact that I haven’t worn a clip-on necktie since I was a child.
So, at the end of the day, I put my mind to it and learned how. What is there in your life that you just need to put your mind to?
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
