Possibilities. What a lovely word. Sometimes we are too focused on barriers, slights, and denials. But possibilities are so much more of a base to build from. It can take a bit of hard nudging to get people to hone in and believe in possibilities. But it can be so much more productive and healing.
What is even better than possibilities are unexpected possibilities. This is akin to a softer, happier take on making lemonade out of lemons. We need to be ready to pounce and act on unexpected possibilities as they emerge.
