Welcome to The Possibility of Today
My name is Sibyl Chavis. I am the creator and writer here at Possibility of Today. I am a former attorney and HR executive turned writer, possibility seeker and lifelong learner.
It all began in 2007 when my husband and I decided we were going to give up complaining for 40 days. It doesn’t sound like a huge deal that would necessarily change your life, does it?
Well, it was.
Giving up complaining changed my entire life
Everything has changed for the better … and I mean the way better.
At first, I found that my work became satisfying and rewarding, my financial profile improved exponentially, certain things I had wanted for sometime started showing up, and all of my relationships and friendships improved.
Most importantly, I gained more clarity about life and, for the first time in a very long time, I felt like I was finally living.
I found that when complaints and the “negative committee” in my mind didn’t dominate my thinking, a whole new world of positive possibilities opened up before me.
Ultimately, I learned that there really is a different way to live.
As soon as the 40-day challenge ended I knew wasn’t the same person anymore. I knew I needed to change parts of my life and live the life that I knew at my core was right for me. Of course, there was only one small problem … at the time, I had no idea exactly what that was.
But, I did know that I needed to open my mind to possibilities. So, that’s what I did. I asked questions and patiently waited for the answers.
I also decided to set a new goal for myself to Live Today Better than Yesterday – to make sure I was really “paying attention”, improving, learning from the experiences that came my way, and doing things that would allow me to take steps in the right direction.
Fast forward to 2011 after many of the answers had come
I ended up quitting my cushy job, sold my house, packed up my stuff (family included of course), and decided it was time to change things up and pursue my passion. Where better to do this than Southern California, which is where I now call home. Oh, and did I mention that I was 7 months pregnant with kid #2 when I made this move?
Did I lose my mind?
No, but the hold that the “negative committee” had on my mind was severed and I gained clarity and courage.
All I can say is that everyday life gets better than I ever dreamed possible.
The Purpose of this Website
I created this website because I want to be as helpful as I can to others who want to break free of their “negative committee,” take action on things they’ve always wanted to do, find more clarity, and ultimately live in this different way.
I want to share everything that I’ve learned, tell you about all the potholes I hit (so you can avoid them) and tell you exactly how to take advantage of the possibilities of today.
I can’t say I know it all, but I have definitely discovered a lot from my experiences and I continue to learn more everyday.
I also want you to join me on this journey because it’s just so much more fun when you have people by your side.
Are you ready? Let’s do this.
