It was suggested to me that I could use a plastic cupcake container to start seedlings for a flower garden. I had this grandiose idea that I would be able to start a beautiful garden (rather a potted area of color) for all to enjoy.
I picked up my daughter and we went to Walmart to start looking at the packaged seeds. My daughter reminded me that I always “KILL” flowers and suggested I purchase a few of the annual flowers @ 73 cents each. She was matter of fact and said that the seeds (in my case) may not even sprout.
My wild dream of being a horticulturist evaporated. :(
Communication is the key to successful business relationships. Being aware of how we treat and affect others with our attitude and behavior can be detrimental to the success of each transaction….each relationship.
We have to coexist with other human beings on this planet and nurture each relationship so we can live in harmony. We learn early on that......
NO ONE HUMAN BEING THINKS ALIKE.
Acceptance comes from having an open mind. Accepting that each person is unique with different opinions and ideas opens the world up to new experiences. More often than not, I may be able to utilize one’s opinion or keep it on the back burner to use (or not) at another time.
Though it didn’t take but a suggestion to remind me of what I am /am not capable of when it comes to nurturing a garden; it reminded me of how I take each person’s opinion at face value. Those that know me (i.e. my daughter) give me their honest opinions and in turn I do the same for them.
It takes so little to give so much….
A listening ear…
An Open mind.
