Storyteller Sunday is a weekly campaign that highlights the people of the world and allows them to tell their story to all who will listen. Each story is unique to the individual(s) and carries a perspective that can only be seen through the eyes of experience. This week, meet:
Ronald / Floral Specialist / 58
Life provides us with chances and opportunities as we go throughout our day to day and each of these opportunities will shape how things proceed from then on. Ronald is a floral specialist for a family owned flower company ran out of Northern Virginia. At the age of 58, he is not where he pictured he would be but he still has the opportunity to touch the hearts of many. Flowers represent beauty, life, love and emotion and being able to harness that energy effects those you may come in contact with. In talking with Ronald, he was not unhappy with life but in his own words, "I just wish I had done a few things differently and better". I think that is something we all can relate to. The anecdote says that hindsight is 20/20, meaning that looking back on a situation it will always be easier to visualize the correct decision but in the moment, all we can do is take the information we have at the time and choose the best solution based on that information. We will never know if a single decision or even a collection of individual decisions would have changed our lives for the better, all we can do is embrace our present challenges and accept the outcomes.
