Resolve

This classic apple commercial is one of my favorite video clips ever. Inspiring eh?

My issue: just because you you think or dream it can happen, doesn’t mean it will.

How are those resolutions going for you? Or your bucket list? Odds are you’ve forgotten about them already because most resolutions don’t last a week.

As far as I can tell just about every great story or achievement was fraught with adversity.

What keeps you going? Why don’t you just give it up? After all, most people do.

But you’re not most people are you?

There’s little glory or admiration for ‘crazy ones’ who haven’t made ‘it’ happen yet.

When you’re feeling isolation, exhaustion, criticism, rejection, and obstacles in every direction how do you maintain the resolve to keep trucking forward when the dream still seems ever so far off?

    Hehe… Thanks for the comment on the site, btw.

    That’s a tough question… Come to think of it ‘what we’re doing’ could form the basis if several blog entries .

    We’re slowly building up a small ‘Ministry’, working with young people, encouraging them to be creative, take their gifts seriously and use them in worship, even though the church generally only accepts music ‘worship’. I write, paint, (There will be links to that soon on the website), tell stories through theatre with young people and try to be a decent dad for my three boys. My wife plays drums, offers hospitality, teaches other people to play drums and disciples a lot of teenage girls.

    Long term we think this may grow into a community of people living and working together, being creative, telling stories and loving people around them, and living in a low-tech, low impact lifestyle.
