The undying desire
for a change
and the utter
belief that change
for the better.
When does one become hopeless? Is it when there is no desire for change or is it when there is no longer any belief that positive change will happen?
Leo tells me “don’t give up hope just yet” when I tell him I should just go make sandwiches in some Panera Bread or Subway. I make killer sandwiches. Who am I to deprive the world of my truly amazing sandwich-making-gift? To him, that would be the same as giving up.
He refuses to let me give up.
Reminds me I’m not there yet.
Not there yet...
It’s a glimmer
It’s when your body still shimmers
and vibrates when you think of the possibilities.
Oh the possibilities
in an endless way
flaunting me just a tad bit beyond reach.
If only I could stand on the itty bitty
point of my tippy toes
so my arm cold reach further.
I wiggle my fingers.
Always leaning in.
So not very becoming.
Yet, I still start every single day by thinking “today is the day“.
The beautiful and inspiring Liz (iampisspot and runnerstood) tagged me in this hope relay. I feel honored beyond words that she tagged me. Right now, at this moment – all I hope for is to find meaningful work. Meaningful meaning creating community change. Meaningful meaning doing something that contributes in a small way towards making the world a better place.
I’ve been searching since December 2010. And I will not give up.
Now it’s time to tag somebody else. I am tagging fellow bloggers who may also be searching for a special something: Joanne from joannerambling, Kelly from Naked Girl in a Dress and Vinny from As Vinny C’s It. Tag – you’re it!
