Good-day to you! Today is blog day, and Rose and I have decided to share some inspiration with you.
It’s true that without feeling inspired we can only achieve so much. The mundane can bring us to a standstill more often than not. But, with so many opportunities available to us, in our imaginations alone, we can achieve everything we set out to. The key, though, is to keep your goals small at first. When you do this, you are rewarded by the feeling of achievement, and this is what paves the way to achieving the next goal you set for yourself.
And so, we’ve created these images with a few quotes that have inspired us, as individuals and in the communities we work with. We hope they’ll inspire you as well.
After all is said and done, I know that without tenacity I would never be able to do everything I need to do in a day. The number of children I have to visit, to give them tiny gifts for their teeth that I use to build the castle – well, I do get tired but I know that even if one child wakes-up in a morning without their gift, they will stop believing in me. And so I go on… to see the smile in their eyes. I am a tooth-fairy, after all!
It reminds of one of Rose’s book, ‘The Lone Avocado Tree’. Rose wrote this story, which was one told to her by her grandmother. It’s a tale of how the Avocado Tree nearly met its end. But with the help of one small boy, the last Avocado seed was able to grow and grow and grow and make more Avocado trees around the world.
Two things saw to the longevity of the Avocado tree in this story. Firstly, the tree accepted help from others and was not stubborn or too arrogant to try to make it alone. Secondly, the tenacity of the little tree is what everyone needs to cultivate, in order to achieve their dreams.
And so, we hope we’ve shared some inspiration with you today. Take a look at The Lone Avocado Tree on Amazon, too, and read this story to your child. We believe it will actually be inspiring to adults as well!
Until next week, stay magical,
The Lone Avocado Tree
