I’ll leave you with a quote (I love a quote) about possibility from Dr Seuss’s ’Oh the places you’ll go’. 

“You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.” 

Big love

P.S.  You can see  Dr Seuss’ full work in  the most inspirational YouTube video of all time, in my opinion of course… Dr Seuss is kind of my hero.
