|I'm glad I remembered to take a picture before we ate the whole thing.|
Goodbye cartooning camp and all the new friends my son made during the week.
|This guy is rare!|
Goodbye to my son having been awarded the Championship game ball for his awesome TRIPLE hit.
Goodbye to another dry week as our grass continues to turn a lighter shade of hay; but it has been nice taking "mow lawn" off the list of to-do's during this summer of drought.
Hello exploring new revenue paths for something I have shelved for a long time.
Hello taking delight into subtle, little signs that continue to remind me I am on the right path.
Hello to taking some time to write my son's annual letter as I reflect on his year of tremendous growth.
Hello making sure everyone's well-fed this weekend with some home-cooked meals.
Hello to cheering on Team USA during the London Olympics 2012!

Then comes the hard work, the effort, to make your words and ideas into a reality. Depending on the type of person you are, you may love this phase of the dream. I know I do. I love busying myself with working out all the details to make this idea happen. It's all set. You've got it all ready to go. Then you hit the next phase: you hope for a breakthrough. But, before you have your breakthrough, you will have to break but you must go through to the other side to finally find success. No one ever tells you how long this break process is but it always seems like it's way too long.
|I think somebody's trying to tell me something.|
And once you go through the test, you will be grateful for the breaking part because your dream has grown stronger, not because it is fed by excitement and accolades, but because it is fed by perseverance and determination to never give up, to go through the breaking period.
I think I'm on the verge of my breakthrough, I just need to keep going through.
My hope is you make it through the breaking part and see your breakthrough, too, in what ever dream you are working towards making into a reality.
Happy weekend, LOVD friends.
