“Some have Hopes and Dreams; Some have Ways and Means.”

Yesterday, I stumbled upon another great quote on my friend, Janet’s Facebook page:

“Some have Hopes and Dreams; Some have Ways and Means.”

This is a verse from a song by Bob Marley fittingly called, “Survival.”

It got me thinking about what it takes not just to survive, but to thrive.

Ways and Means provide the wherewithal – making it easier to ride out a storm.

Hope and Dreams fill us with the patience to wait for the clouds to break, and the belief that the sun will eventually emerge.

But it’s from Conviction and Self-esteem that we derive the strength and courage to withstand the winds, brave the thunder and to dance in the rain. And that is the difference between surviving and thriving.
