Just believe

February 28, 2009

“Between Austria and Italy, there is a section of the Alps called the Semmering. It is an impossibly steep, very high part of the mountains. They built a train track over these Alps to connect Vienna and Venice. They built these tracks even before there was a train in existence that could make the trip. They built it because they knew some day, the train would come.”

rainbow1These words are taken from “Under the Tuscan Sky“, an adaption of the novel of the same name by Francis Mayes.  I watched the film recently and this particular quote made me stop and think.

How often do we give up on things or never even start them because we cant see how things are going to resolve or turn out the way we hope?  How often do we give up on our dreams, believing they are the foolish desires of our youth, hopes for impossibilities that can never happen?  How often do we cease our prayers for that miracle, that one thing which we truly believe in?

We shouldn’t.  We should pave the way, prepare ourselves and believe in the possibilities of the future, of our futures, of what we can achieve or attain if we are prepared to wait our time.
