Mug of the Month: Y como no sabía que era imposible


I received this lovely mug from my friend earlier this month after she visited a cute gift shop in the south of Spain. The mug has a happy little elephant with wings flying through the air with the accompanying Spanish phrase: 'Y como no sabía que era imposible... lo hizo'.

Our mutual friend who lives in Spain tells me the direct translation is: ‘And as (or because) he didn't know it was impossible...he did it!’

The little elephant did not know he couldn't fly, but he gave it a go and found out he could. Takes the meaning of 'ignorance is bliss' or 'pigs might fly' to a much happier place, if you ask me.

And a nice little reminder every morning of how we should live our lives, perhaps?
