I’ve been looking forward to this day for almost two years now. Today’s harvest finally has a semblance of my ideal vision for a veggie basket. I made a slight change to the pricing and enjoyed watching on as my customers mixed and matched items to create their baskets.
I was able to get everything prepared for delivery and take care of my morning tasks, despite waking up feeling fatigued. However, I should have expected this; after countless trips filling buckets, bottles and containers when the water returned last night. My body was stiff! I felt sluggish! Nevertheless, I had things to do, places to go and people to meet.
Persistence is said to be a cornerstone to success, but how many people actually know what this entails? Seems like the only way to truly understand persistence is through the experience of enduring something, sometimes unpleasant, over a long period of time. Persistence seems to be bedfellows with faith, failure, patience and a host of other virtues, some of which we have no clue exist, but still unknowingly exercise in order to accomplish our goals.
Now that I’ve accomplished this little milestone, I feel like I am just getting started. Yes, I was able to provide a variety of items, but was lacking in quantity; major room for improvement! It’s time to step it up a notch and plough onwards. This is yet another step in the journey of a thousand miles; let’s just ignore the fact that I lost count a while ago.
