there was a girl named mandy
who was tempted by a man with candy
with might and main they tried it on the beach, but it was too sandy
on her way home she found a flashlight, she thought how handy
now, she spends all her time singing “you don’t light up my life andy”

When you are traveling around Italy and you see all of these and believe the whole world is conspiring against you.
“Can you get us?”
“No. Can you get a little closer, please!”
“A bit more because I can’t seem to get the tip of the church.”
“I am trying!”
Yes, the life of an amateur photographer atop the Uffizi Museum, attempting to get the tip of the church on the family picture. What he didn’t realize is that most of us can never get it, no matter the angle. It is just how the buildings are positioned and one is best off leaving the task to a professional who would certainly know how to position the camera for that perfect picture. I might say that it was a tad entertaining watching him wrestling with the floor o no avail. Never-the-less, he did not give up, he kept going.
There is no success without sacrifice. To every little bit of step conquered, there is a back door story loaded with curves and curvatures bigger then the Eiffel Tower to fill a tank on how it came to be. It means that in order to achieve that coveted goal, flash our teeth on that podium, we must fight until out of breath, have courage, perseverance, soul to overcome any challenge that presents itself. It is a package that must be handled with care as nothing happens in a vacuum. Although, it may take us sometimes to understand its trails, we must be bold in our resolve to see through the crowned sacrifice we consented to reach the target.
