The Somebody of your Life


At my recent evening with Jack Canfield, he told a story that went something like this;

A couple walked the same route every day. And every day they passed a rose garden that hadn't had someone to tend to it in a very long time. It was dried up. And everyday as the couple walked by, one or the other commented on how someone (the city) should do something like that. And day after day, they walked past it.

Then one day when the woman said, for the umpteenth time, "Someone really should do something about that", her husband responded in a different manner than ever before."

"We're somebody." He said.

So the next day they began to tend to the ugly piece of land. They watered. They fertilized. They planted. And soon a beautiful rose garden emerged.

What or who is the somebody in your life?

Good story and so true. We all have the ability to create change yet often we wait for someone else to do so. Great to see this on a blog :)

True. I think I'm a pretty conscious person but I'm on a new lookout for places that I can be "somebody."

Thanks for the comment Jennifer!

Everyone is somebody in this world and they love to create what they need to learn so they gather at some place and pray for what is there in http://www.verbchecker.com/how-to-use-subject-verb-agreement-checker/ and how that can help the readers in the most appropriate way.
