There is a saying, “Don’t hang your hat higher than you can reach.” For most of us, it is common to do that. We all desire to have beautiful things in life and nothing is wrong with that, I do it all the time. To have a nice car, a beautiful house, lots of money you know the drill.
One day after meditating these thoughts became visible to me. They said “Hillary, your determination to satisfy these cravings might be impressive however it can lead you to grievance.” So, I took it upon myself to do some soul searching to really understand the deeper meaning of this message.
First, I asked myself, “What are my possibilities to reach the magnitude of my craving besides winning the lottery?”
With careful deliberation, it came to me. If my desires stay within my parameters I can earn enough wealth to live a comfortable lifestyle. In addition, it can bring added joy to my life, which can subsequently make me rich and independent… What I need to recognize is how to leverage my talents to the maximum. With good intentions and perseverance I could develop my innate resources to live my dream.
In recent times I have become less complacent and more resourceful, so much so that I find myself to be more complete and content with who I am. I am also reaping the benefits of working diligently and learning how to leverage my talents to my advantage. But I knew I always had this ability within me as I remembered back in 2006 I was interviewed by Express Woman in Trinidad and Tobago and I had 20 questions to answer, one of them being, “What is your most elusive goal?” My answer: “To conduct a choir.” Today, I am proud to say that I am coaching a choir and loving it.
