I love this thought.
The list of what we cannot do grows shorter and shorter.
This comes from a former patient at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center, talking about how the MMHC helped them through a difficult time in their life. Here’s the full quote for greater affect:
My mother told me, 36 years ago, “Hang on. They’ll find a cure.” I was suffering alone until I came to MMHC. And today… oh so grateful… beyond any words, so grateful. Lives and sufferings have been redeemed here, and today we celebrate and honor, all of us, in this place, for better or for worse. Today, we flourish. The list of what we cannot do grows shorter and shorter. We become comfortable in a world of three dimensions; we gladly surrender the fourth, fifth, and sixth.
Today, we flourish.
