A Motivational Parable

A farmer and his son had a beloved stallion who helped the family earn a living. One day, the horse ran away and their neighbors exclaimed, “Your horse ran away, what terrible luck!” The farmer replied, “Maybe so, maybe not. We’ll see.”

A few days later, the horse returned home, leading a few wild mares back to the farm as well. The neighbors shouted out, “Your horse has returned, and brought several horses home with him. What great luck!” The farmer replied, “Maybe so, maybe not. We’ll see.”

Later that week, the farmer’s son was trying to break one of the mares and she threw him to the ground, breaking his leg. The villagers cried, “Your son broke his leg, what terrible luck!” The farmer replied, “Maybe so, maybe not. We’ll see.”

A few weeks later, soldiers from the national army marched through town, recruiting all the able-bodied boys for the army. They did not take the farmer’s son, still recovering from his injury. Friends shouted, “Your boy is spared, what tremendous luck!” To which the farmer replied, “Maybe so, maybe not. We’ll see.”


The moral of this story, is, of course, that no event, can truly be judged as good or bad, lucky or unlucky, fortunate or unfortunate at the time that they occur – in many cases only time will tell the whole story. I know Fit4Dance is a significant part of my life's purpose. I am working hard to remain urgent and grateful and accept each situation in relation to the studio, whether they originally appear to be ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ 

Some MAJOR work had to be done to a structural wall in the new studio and it has severely delayed our move in date. I decided to postpone classes until we move in which is now mid to late April. So I need your help. Pray & send positive energy to the studio. Many of you have asked what you can do to get it ready and I really appreciate it!!! Right now positive energy & prayers for a timely completion is what is most needed.
