Do you believe that life is really dynamic? That it isn’t quite finished yet? That not only are you involved always in a circling series of potentials, but that you are potential. You, potential. Do you believe that? 

~ Howard Thurman

A circling series of potentials.  I love that.  Potentials swirling around.  Like a whirlpool. 

Potential can either be an adjective or a noun.  NOUN: “latent qualities or abilities that may be developed and lead to future success”

OMG. . .In So Many Ways.  WE can be potential!

Potential circling around.  

That phrase stands out to me. Grabs at me. I’m not exactly sure why.  Perhaps it’s this whole potential thing, in the winter of life.  It’s not too late.   Not too late to have potential.  To BE potential.

OMG. . .In So Many Ways.  Me Potential?  You Potential?

Are there latent qualities I can still develop that might lead to future success?  Success in what?  For what?  God knows.  If I listen, I will hear.  My potential.  Even in the season of winter!

I am reminded of the Amaryllis bulbs Trader Joe’s sells at Christmas.  Not much  potential showing in those red containers,  when I bought some as gifts.  Ahh, but they knew their secret.  Potential abounds.  Hmm.  Could be a metaphor here?

OMG…In So Many Ways.  Amaryllis bulbs and Potential.

YOU are involved in a circling series of Potential.   YOU are Potential.   Do you believe that?
