Would YOU Ever Do That?
What are your favorite movies that you have watched multiple times?
One of mine is Under the Tuscan Sun. I love the scene where Frances is feeling alone in her 300-year-old fixer-upper, weeping to her sympathetic Italian realtor that she has nothing to fill the bedrooms with and fearing that she bought a house for a life she doesn’t have. The realtor tells her about a railroad line built over the Alps at a time when no train could make the trip. He adds that just as the builders had faith that the train would someday be designed, Frances must have faith that her house will be filled with love.
Who builds train tracks without a train? Who buys a 300-year-old run-down Italian villa by herself? Who ventures in to dine at a restaurant they know nothing about it?
Those who have HOPE ... those who have positive expectations about the future ... those who think optimistically ... those who focus on good things to come! Well guess what? A train capable of running on the Semmering Railway, a civil engineering feat, was invented! And Frances filled her house with love! We have the choice to live our lives through hope and optimism, or fear and pessimism. Let hope carry you!
