I have been talking to a Friend this morning who is getting a diagnoses for their child through various agencies..
Often with a diagnoses, comes a definition on how the person will/should behave..they become ‘boxed’ and categorized, to be able to get them the help they need.
And yes we need the diagnoses, and yes, they need the help.
BUT, it doesn’t have to finish there..
We are not limited by our Box.
Even without an official definition we often fetter ourselves.. ‘oh I could never do that’ ‘I can’t’ ‘I won’t because if I do..’
Last year I had an epiphany of sorts..I was always one who said the Ohs I could never..
I woke up one day and said..
Why Not indeed.
And so I did. I started doing the Nevers, yes sometimes failing, but try try trying again, and you know what? I have had successes…Go Me.
Because you see, God has written all over me in Colour. He has written the Good and the Possible, the Creative and the Extraordinary..
We CAN do things,
We just have to try.
Gifts and Treasures are inherent within us..the tools are all there, the ideas and the mullings..
So put some pen to paper, some paint on the brushes, the words in your mouth, the kindness in your hands, and come out of your Box.
You’ll be glad you did..
I know I am😁
