Is it possible to thrive and decline at the same time?

When I was out walking my dog, Sherbert, as I do every morning I spotted this plant.

( Walking early is SO good for my soul – I highly recommend it as a habit to develop l!)

What’s interesting is the different stages that this individual plant is in.

Partly still flowering, partly sending out seeds and the other bits look like they are dying or are already dead.

Don’t let this fool you though, we all know that come the spring this plant will be back.

The seeds it’s spreads now will bury deep down, search for nourishment, warmth and safety and then gently and slowly new growth will appear above ground and eventually it will be in full blossom again.

Do you ever feel like that?  I know I do sometimes.

Maybe you’re feeling tired, worn out and you’re withering away.

Maybe some part of your life is in full bloom – you career, your relationship

And then others are fading – your body, your memory or your desire to learn.

Take comfort that maybe these things need to fade for a while.

Perhaps they need to burrow down to find warmth, nourishment, comfort, and safety until the warm rays find them and allow them to blossom once again.

Maybe you do too??

You know what?  Abundance is really all around us, yet sometimes all we see is the negatives.

    So, hopefully 60+ may be just right., It sounds fun

Now that I am where I want to be it is important that I maintain th
