Swimming the moat…

There’s an old Italian story that goes something like this:

Every day an old man would make a pilgrimage to the top of a hill upon which sat a statue.

Every day he would kneel in front of the statue and offer up the same prayer:

“Please! Please! Please!

Let me win the lottery! ”

And then he would turn and make the long trek back down the hill to his home.

This continued for many years until one day, the exasperated statue, so sick of hearing the same words over and over, came to life and said:

“Please! Please! Please!


How often in life do we play the “waiting game”?

  1. Great post and so true! You’ve gotta be in it to win it as they say. This is a timely reminder for me to get active in life and take responsibility for my own experience. Thanks!

  2. I took your post literally and bought a lotto ticket for last night. I’m excited to say that I did purchase a winning ticket. I won $21 for my outlay of $20. Perhaps I should have been more specific about how much I wanted to win!

    • Geez, I can see I’m going to have to be careful about exactly which metaphors I use with you Samantha…guess we can thankfully assume there are no castles near you!! :)

I would absolutely love to hear any thoughts, suggestions or questions you may have. Thanks!
