PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.
One of the most amazing things about hope for me is that the more we practice it, the more we seem to find it and have it with us. I can't imagine my daughter picking up the violin and playing Mozart perfectly the very first time. She has to learn: one note at a time, one string at a time, one finger at a time, one swipe with the bow at a time. Each note is played and learned and perfected. And it takes years to become good.
I wonder why we can be so hard on ourselves when we struggle. When we lose hope. When we need help. I think we often forget the lesson of practice and time.
"The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. Not admire from a distance but live right in it, under it's roof". Barbara Kingsolver (1955-___) US novelistI love that quote. "Not admire from a distance, but live right in it, under it's roof". What a beautiful description of hope. We can't change things if we only wish. I think we have to be willing to hope that it can happen and then try to do what we need to do to bring it to pass. Hope comes first, then the practice, and finally the change.
