Honey – Jina Wallwork


Listen to my wings; they buzz with activity and quiver with excitement. I focus my efforts as I aim to reach the outer limits of my own capabilities. I want to know that I have given the world all that I can. My every ability has been nurtured, and each gift has been expressed with love and care. Some people need to stop in order to appreciate where the journey has taken them. But I see no reason to cease, because I smell every flower as I work throughout the day; therefore, I don’t have to stop in order to smell the roses. To experience the rose’s scent is an important priority that perpetuates my endeavors. I understand that its blissful fragrance is a part of the process. It’s the knowledge that is gained through study; it’s the skills that are gained from attempting new things. The process shapes my abilities, as it pushes me to question my own assumptions of where my limits can be found. The enhancement of my self-esteem leads me to seek out greater challenges.

When the time comes, I get to taste the sweet honey of accomplishment. It is such a small part of an amazing process. I have even gained an appreciation of my every failure, because they were part of the learning experience. I’m grateful for every piece of the process, because each lesson has taught me so much. They haven’t all contained the sweetness of honey, although they do have an acquired taste that I have come to love.
