I just received a forwarded email with the subject line: The Daffodil Principal."
I don't normally read forwarded emails, but since daffodils are my favorite flower – I opened it up.
The message told the story of a woman who began in 1958 with a dream of creating beauty on her property. Overshe planted 50,000 daffodil bulbs to create a sea of color for all to enjoy. One woman, one dream, one bulb at a time.
In the story, the storyteller felt a sense of lost for all she might have accomplished if she'd only started earlier.
But the message is this: Start today. One bulb at a time.
What is your dream? What one thing can you do today to start to make that dream a reality?
Don't waste time with regrets. Instead – keep your eyes forward – focused on the good you can do today and tomorrow and the tomorrows after that; one bulb at a time.
