Tell me about your mighty moment

Life has opposites.  It’s how we make sense of the things.

You might say that we need to experience the opposite to make sense of the ‘other’.

When you talk to someone who finds themselves in unfortunate circumstances, do you empathise through being able to relate?

In order to have some compassion, do we need to have experienced something ‘bad’ to understand why someone has a bad attitude or why someone behaves the way they do?

Your answer might be different to mine.

But let’s understand one thing together:

Experiencing more of life, whether personally or through observing another person or situation, might help us to have some more compassion.

We are all living in this world together.

We might be just one person.

We might be just one individual.

We might think that we’re ‘just’ one.

…But we might be a collective with lots of similar thoughts, beliefs, experiences, observations.

We might have been told along our life journey that we ‘can’t’ do something, ‘can’t’ be something, ‘can’t’ believe something, ‘can’t’ say something.

…that we just ‘can’t’.

Well here’s the thing that you might do well to remember:

You are as big as you want to be.

You are mighty.


Has anyone ever told you that you ‘can’t’ only for you to prove them wrong?  Tell me about your ‘mighty’ moment in the comments below.  I’d love to hear about it…

  1. This is wonderful. It’s so true, we are so often told that we can’t do something, but when we actually try, we do great things. Such a positive message, thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x

    • I used to be a worrier and a pessimist Robert and also discovered that satisfaction that you say is ‘beautiful’ when you prove you ‘can’. It truly is! Thanks for dropping by. 🙂

  2. Such an inspiring post! I agree we may have been told we “can’t”, but we ultimately decide for ourselves whether we want to try. If we don’t try, we won’t experience what we can be, do, believe, say. #theprompt

  3. Fab post, Carol. I found, in the past it was often me telling myself I couldn’t do things. A few years ago I decided I needed to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’ more often. So now I do. When I posted about education today, the little voice said ‘You CAN’T post anything political, it’s not what you do on your blog!’ but I decided to ignore it. And the post is about how we could be mighty if we all act together. We shall see…

    • And as you’ll know by now Maddy, I wholeheartedly agree and am most definitely not sitting on the fence where your blogpost is concerned! I do think that when we’re really passionate about something it helps to quash the ‘can’t’, which is interesting in itself. 🙂

  4. oh yes, there seem to be quite a few people who like to tell others they cant do things so that they can control or belittle or some other not so nice things. Also there is the loving ‘cant’ from parents which comes out normally as ‘shouldn’t’. Its a good ‘thinking’ post, thanks

  5. Hi Carol, I think the word can’t can be quite motivating (or is that just me?). The word ‘can’t’ is such a negative word and should at least be replaced with the word ‘try’ and then if you can’t, fair dos.


  6. I’m always and have been told throughout my life I can’t do certain things (or maybe shouldn’t do certain things) and for the most part I have tried to stick to my guns and do what I think is best for the situation – my post was about me becoming mighty – so I think it all ties in with your inspiring post too 🙂 Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

    • I think it says something about a person when they rebel a little when told they ‘can’t’. Oh yes we can!! Thanks for commenting. I’ll be popping by yours shortly for a ponder 🙂

  7. My inner teenager still wants to do the opposite of what I am told to do and to do anything I am told I can’t 😉 since next year I will have my own teenager this does not bode well 😉

    Thank you for linking up to #PicknMix


  8. We do this in our family all the time saying we can’t do something just for us to all be competitive and prove them wrong. It was always a standing joke in our house growing up. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me. Sorry for delayed commenting we were away on holiday. #sharewithme
