Everything Is Figureoutable

Yesterday I got in the mail Marie Forleo’s new book “Everything is Figureoutable”.

I just started reading it and I know I am going to LOVE it. Just what I’ve read so far this morning, has fired me up. She talks about her mother and it reminds me so much of my late mother.

Here’s what I mean…. this is from the book on page 3

Marie came home one day to find her Mother fixing a little radio that she loved and that had broken. This is what transpired:

Marie says: “I stood there for a second, watching her work her magic. Finally, I asked, “Hey Mom, how do you know how to do so many different things that you’ve never done before, without anyone showing you how to do it?”

She put down her screwdriver, turned to me, and said, “Don’t be silly, Ree. Nothing in life is that complicated. You can do whatever you set your mind to if you just roll up your sleeves, get in there, and do it. Everything is figureoutable.”

I was transfixed, reveling in and repeating these words in my head: Everything is figureoutable. Everything is figureoutable. Holy shit, yes….

I love this attitude. My own mother was exactly like this. She lived in Northern Ontario, Canada, and had access to very little but could fix anything or figure out a way to make things happen. She also had an attitude of anything is possible. I can hear her in my mind “Oh, you can to”. This was one of her favorite sayings in response to someone wondering if something was possible or if they could indeed do something in life.

I know I will be highly recommending this book and can’t wait to dig in!

I will close with a quote from page 7 of the book: “We need you. We need your heart, your voice, your courage, your JOY, your creativity, your compassion, your love, and your gift. Now, more than ever.”

Earlier today I wrote a blog most over on my main blog MaggieHolbikBlog about exactly this through using our own expression and creativity. You may enJOY reading that post too. Here is the link: https://maggieholbik.blog/2019/09/24/the-real-work-of-your-life/

I hope that you find the courage to know that everthing is indeed ‘figureoutable’ so that you can step up to the plate of life and share your gifts with the world. As Marie says “We need YOU!”
