Defining Moments

Happy Monday!

It was 3am in the morning. I cracked open the window to hear the rain steadily dropping in its melodic sound....truly beautiful.

Rain has always been a joy to me; walking in my long yellow rain coat and rubber boots, splashing in the puddles and looking upto the sky allowing the cool rain to drop on my face. I bought my rain coat one Mother's Day as a gift to myself and use it faithfully in the rain.

One of my favorite quotes is, "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's about learning to dance in the rain" by Vivian Greene.

Living in 'what if's' and  'I think' can be imobilizing.  You will survive and thrive through fears and apprehensions when you courageously move forward.

Through trials and experience you learn  to call things as they are and move within that reality. You begin to listen to that inner voice that has guided you for years and trust your instincts revealing truth and direction.

Truth is
Revolutionary to your life. You are
Trust your instincts and have
Hope; you have great purpose!

Live On Purpose!

Life Lesson From The Garden II

Happy Monday!

It's so lovely to see a beautiful garden; one that has been cared for and maintained.  Beautiful, bright vivid colors of blooms contrasted with lush shades of green and dark brown earth.

However, no matter how nice your garden is, you will always get weeds. Vigilant gardeners regularly survey their gardens and pull weeds out from the root.

One major mistake is to attempt to cover the earth with mulch without pulling weeds or laying landscape cloth. If you miss these important steps it you will have weeds growing through your mulch and you will have to constantly move the mulch aside.

Removing the weeds and laying landscape cloth then adding soil and mulch will greatly reduce weeds although I am amazed to see the odd weed poke through.

This is like life, the more you anticipate and prepare, the more successful you will be. Although there are no 100% guarantees, your chances for success are higher.

Measure twice, cut once.
