Hope fulfilled

(pic is my Just Joey roses from last summer-new ones blooming now-click to enlarge)

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for. ~ Epicurus

You know, I really hate to admit it but its true. And why do I hate it? Well I suppose its because I have not achieved all that I dreamed. And who ever does? We would be extremely lucky to just come close to a dream right?

So how much of a percentage is it? Unquestionably the quote rings true to a certain extent. Six years ago, I couldnt even comprehend what today would feel like much less understand the implications.

The dream was to touch as many people as I could, teach as many as possible, and enhance their lives in some tiny way. In some good way. To ever so slightly be able to make them feel better about themselves even if that was just a small moment in time. I would say I have done that and more.

I wont dissect how it touched them as that is not the point. Of course I am told you cant make everyone happy, but if it made someone stop and even disagree, it gave me the opportunity to discuss the matter. My heart was always in the right place and the goal was consistently the same. And I would say the dream materialized early on in this one particular adventure.

After that, it was merely enhancing it all….perfecting it daily…..tweaking it and seeing how to do it again and again and again. Engaging the team around me to feel the passion that I felt. Infecting them with the same goals and dreams.

Wow, if you look at it that way its like getting the cute purse you wished for and having the chance to fill it with blessings every day, over and over and over again. Now that’s hope fulfilled. ~ p.hawkins

Such a beautiful and meaningful post. It is hard, I agree. I often have to tell myself to relax. Good things come to those who are patient and true.
