I Can Do That!

Dear  Friends,
     I was reading the April Science of Mind magazine  and loved the article about
 “I Can Do That”. Do you remember when you were a child, or even older, and saw someone do something that made you feel in AWE of the person?  Not only in AWE, but a deep feeling inside that told you, “YOU can do that also!”  The article mentioned author Dan Brown who had that
“I Can Do This” moment while reading books by Sidney Sheldon and Robert Ludlum.  He went on to write, The Da Vinci Code.
I remember attending the Ice Capades in Chicago with my parents as a child and thought that very thought, “I can do that!”  My childhood exuberance was a bit over the top, however my dad started taking me to the outdoor ice rink and I had a blast learning how to skate. What fun and joy it gave me.
I also remember sitting in my third grade classroom listening to my teacher and I thought, I can do this.  I want to be a teacher when I grow up. And so I did!  I taught pre-school and elementary school for 20 years.
I also thought I would be a really good minister’s wife.  Little did I know I would BE a minister, then marry a minister. 🙂
God’s bit of humor!
The “I Can Do That” attitude comes deep within our soul.  It is a feeling, an intuition, a still small voice, that is telling us, pursue what gives you joy, fun and  purpose.   Even if you fall short of a dream, just being on the journey is an adventure and blessed because one road not completed may lead you to another road which you do complete. Any time you admire a quality in another person, the fact that you “recognize it” means there is that special quality within you as well. God may use it in a different way, but it is there!
Many are celebrating the resurrection of Christ Jesus during this Easter season because he showed us the way to live and to love.  He even told us,
“What I Do, YOU Can Do Also, and Even Greater Things.”
There are no limits to our soul’s purpose.  What we came in to do is only ours to do and the doors will open for us when we Trust, have Faith and Surrender to God’s Highest Good for our lives. Mitch Horowitz in the article said:
“All achievement is a marriage of idealism and great execution.
The wanting alone is insufficient – there must be impeccable follow-through. But the journey can begin, and sometimes must begin, with that one spark of inner realization in which you say to yourself: I Can Do That!”
Pay Attention to the moment when your heart  says-
Know you have it in you.
Then do it!!!
