Beauty in the Weeds

Have you found yourself "weeding" lately?

This has different meanings for each of us. For some this is literally pulling weeds in the garden, others this means they are weeding through photos, products, even all the clutter on their desks. And on the other hand some would say that their social lives need a bit of weeding.

Through the years I have come in contact with many people. Some have remained friends or acquaintances for many of those years and others have come and gone for different reasons. I have found my self thinking about my connections, that of personal and professional. I ask myself are these friends that I have stayed in close contact with or have I drifted away from them.

I catch myself thinking back at the "good times" and remembering fun moments. Often asked why I had a smile on my face or what I was laughing about. Those are memories I cherish.

I have, on another occasion, been told that if I want to change my life or grow my business in a different direction, that I should surround myself with those that are of like mind. Well, let me tell you, I have been very blessed with the friends and acquaintances that I have in my life.
To all of you, I say thank you for allowing me to be part of Your life.

My thought for today is that as you are "weeding" through the gardens in your life, that you stop to appreciate the beauty in which that particular weed has to offer. You might find that, that "weed" is the most beautiful flower in your garden after all.

Be kind to yourself and do something good to Satisfy Your Senses!
