“Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.” – John Andrew Holmes

It’s Monday, Clutchettes and you may either be looking at the clock waiting for it to be over already, or full of ideas and don’t know where to begin. Whatever energy you have bouncing around inside you, take a few moments to center yourself and remember that the Woman upstairs believes you’re smart enough, capable enough, and diligent enough to pull off your wildest dreams. Don’t let anything or anyone distract you from your goals.

Happy Monday!

  • Thanks Brit,

    As of this minute, I’m attempting the impossible FRYING CHICKEN. I know that the Almighty will lead me in this impossible journey of sorts!

  • Thanks so much for the Wise Words. I got off work (overnight from 11pm-7am), haven’t slept and now I have to go to the studio to make work for upcoming deadlines AND go to class. I’m tired as hell but the Wise Words let me know that I can make it happen (maybe with the help of coffee)!

    Wonderful! This hits so close to home. Thank you, Britni! I’ve always felt awful when an older person told me I couldn’t do something just because they weren’t able to do it when they were younger or because they fear you will fail or they want to spare you the pain of heartache and failure. While I do appreciate the concern of an older person, it does young, vulnerable people a great disservice when elders say they can’t or because of x, y, and z they couldn’t. I do value the wisdom of our elders however, but not all of our elders have translated their life experience into wisdom. What is wise is learning from the mistakes they’ve made or when they stopped trying things and taking chances because they had too many setbacks and became discouraged. This is especially true for our black and brown children when so many have images before them and messages telling them they will fail. Be the contradiction. Tell them ithey can do and be anything they want to be. Whatever is your dream, strive to defy the odds, no matter what obstacles are before you, how terrified of failure you are or whether you reach there or not.

    I’ve been told I couldn’t do things by a lot of older people. I’ve never fell hard against what I want to do though. Very inspiring quote. Thanks for sharing.
