What is Necessary

As some of you may know, I have a sick addiction to quotes. When I read a magazine, I watch for little snippets of wisdom to cut from the pages and store away in my quote box(es). When I read a book, I do so with pen in hand, ready to underline words of inspiration and challenge. I love, love, love quotes.

About a month ago, I was cleaning my desk (an ever-evolving project that I can’t seem to conquer) and I stumbled upon a St. Francis of Assisi quote that I don’t remember ever seeing before.

Start by doing what is necessary; then do what is possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

It has buried its roots deep within my heart, twisting through forgotten chambers and digging ever deeper, the question echoing, “what is necessary?”

What is necessary?

What is necessary?

What is necessary?

That is a good question. I haven’t the answer for my own life. Not yet, anyway. I will. I promise you, I will find the answer.

What is necessary in your own life? And how do you (hope to) see it becoming the possible, and eventually, the impossible? Please share! I long for the inspiration.

ETA: What is necessary is stepping outside tonight for a glimpse (or eyeful) of the Perseid Meteor Shower!
