Will we sit together at the special dinner table next year as well? We certainly hope so.
Will everyone in our families avoid serious illnesses next year? We certainly hope so.
Whatever happens next year that is out of our control, I hope we will remember this much:
Unless the bombs will be exploding outside our windows, I hope we will never forget our mission.
Sure it can be re-adjusted as we go along, as the winds blow into our faces. But we don't turn back, we don't give up because of lack of time and money. We don't give up because of lack of encouragement for the real encouragement comes from within. We don't give up because of fear of change for to fulfill our mission is to change and change is scary, sometimes scary as hell.
What reassurance do we have?
Perhaps that there are people like us who do things like this. People from the past and present. You are not alone on this mission.
But it's hard, sometimes it seems impossible to keep going. That's why so few have succeeded. If it would have been easy, everyone would do it. But then it wouldn't have been worth it.
If you're reading these lines, my guess is that you want some kind of change in your life. And next year might be just the year for that.
Shoot for the stars. Maybe you'll end up on the moon instead. It wouldn't be a bad result either.
