I was talking to Lucie the other day. Lucie is our wonderful Director of First Impressions and she takes care of us. I said “I hope to be back at 2:30.” Hope is not a word I use often. Hope infers we will let others impact, influence or control the outcome. Hope, on its own, is not sufficient. For example, I hope I will be successful is not sufficient. To be successful requires your input and your work. I will be successful indicates commitment.
I am committed to being successful, being happy and being a great Zaida for my grandchildren. And I am.
