Vineyard near entrance to Château de Chenonceau
Last week I told you all to be failures. However, I only want you to be a failure until you succeed. Because success does not come without work and sometimes some failing. On the road to success it is sometimes easy to get distracted. This is especially true when we see other people bringing forth such fruitful successes while we are still planting a seed. We feel defeated.
During my time in France, it was said and wished that I would have been able to see the area in full bloom. The land was not very fruitful, the trees were bare. I still fell in love. I didn't need all the sparkle and shining. Even in its barest form, I could see so much beauty. What do you see when you look at the vineyard? I see work, I see love, I see years, I see potential and I see beauty.
So much of our time can be easily wasted on wishing for things to be different. If only's... What if's.... Why not's.... We miss so much. Let's not waste time wishing for a different season. Let's enjoy the beauty of all seasons and states of our life, our projects. Even when the storms roll in we must always remember that water brings life, that winds may prune away the weakest branches, sometimes things we love will be lost.
In which season is your current WIP? Can you see its beauty?
