“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
This is one of my favorite quotes said by Nelson Mandela. This phrase, so simple, yet so powerful, has rested in the right-hand column of this blog since the debut of Marti Ink. I placed it permanently on this site as a reminder to myself, and to others, to put less worry into my thoughts and more action into actually turning an idea into a reality.
Nelson Mandela is the perfect example of what faith and positive thinking can do. The story of his life should serve as a reminder to us all to never give up striving for something you believe in. Not even decades of bondage and humiliation were enough to break this man’s willful spirit. That’s something to think about the next time you feel discouraged or think that life is in someway working to defeat you.
Have faith, take action and watch the impossible become possible.
Rest in peace Mr. Mandela. Your mission in life has been well accomplished.
