22-020 Dare

Today’s Mandala
Dare to Imagine

“Dare to live the life
you have imagined for yourself”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Life is either a daring adventure
or nothing at all.” — Helen Keller

“You are capable of so much more than we usually dare to imagine.”
— Sharon Salzberg

Today’s mandala dares us to imagine, dares us to dream, dares us to live to our full potential. If that seems daunting, start with asking easy ”what if” questions and build up to bigger and bigger what ifs.

For example:

  • what if tomorrow I put blueberries on my cereal instead of bananas?
  • what if the next day I added 1000 more steps to my daily walks
  • what if the day after that I set up my desk so I can start writing my book
  • what if the day after that I come up with a title for the book (at least for now)
  • what if the day after that I start writing 200 words a day to my book
  • what if in two weeks I start writing 500 words a day
  • what if next month I start writing 1,000 words a day
  • what if in two months I start researching potential publishers
  • what if in six months I start editing my book
  • what if in eight months I finished my book
  • what if in nine months I found a publisher
  • what if next year I was on the New York Times Best Sellers List
  • what if I fail
  • what if I succeed

We dare you to go for it, whatever _IT_ is!

Blessings,
