Word every Darling should know: Fruition
Why this word?
There are few things in this world that give us a genuine sense of happiness. One of those things just happens to be watching someone’s dream become reality, or rather, come to fruition. As all of you know by now, Darling has officially published its first print edition. Although I am dying to get my hands on my own copy, I have delighted in perusing the thought-provoking and visually-intriguing content in the digital version. The magazine’s success did not come solely from a vision the founders had, but also from hard work, perseverance, talent, faith, patience and hope from volunteers and supporters who believed in the vision as well. This is precisely the reason why we feel such happiness when we experience or witness fruition—it’s the realization of something much-desired, which often requires serious dedication.
