Lessons from the Rose Garden__2: Everything in its Own Time

Everything–and everyone!–does not grow at the same pace. In the past week, the new rose plants we brought home that had quickly buckled under Arizona’s unseasonable heat have now lost all their half-burnt blossoms. Aside from increasingly dry leaves, the plants seem dormant and are now completely bare. Though we’ve been careful to water all … Continue reading

Show. Don’t Tell. Let the Story Board Lead the Way.

To truly know where your head is at, let the board lead the way. If you ask a Ouija Board, “Where is my head at?” you may get an answer you have not bargained for. Why not instead try a Vision Board? It still allows you to let your fingers do some walking but the … Continue reading

SERENDIPITY SERIES: It’s Always Sweeter the 2nd Time Around

IF . . . IF I hadn’t volunteered for the internship. IF the possibility for a job there hadn’t evaporated with the unexpected events that caused a hiring freeze. IF I hadn’t gone to that association meeting in place of my internship supervisor, this all wouldn’t be happening. IF I hadn’t ‘missed out’ on sitting … Continue reading
