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.
