And Everything Changes

If you don’t like where you are, then change it. You are not a tree. -Jim Rohn

Then you see this…

Change Your Mind

My darling. It’s okay to change your mind.

It’s okay to change your mind as often as you like, but I must warn you. If you continually change your mind, the world around you will change.

There is a vine that grows along our fence.

My daughter loves it, but it doesn’t bloom.

It’s just lush and green. This is the year of the bloom, so this vine bothers me. I couldn’t just let it be a non blooming vine, so here is how I tried to help it!

I planted a blooming vine beside it. 🙂

My grand idea was…the bloomer would intertwine with the non bloomer and give the illusion that it blooms. Pretty smart huh? Nah..I never overthink.

I kept an eye on the blooming vine and noticed it wasn’t happy. It was growing but not grabbing the fence. It’s tendrils would just droop forward, away from the fence like it was having a little rebellion.

So, I dug it up and moved it down the fence.

I changed my mind. It didn’t need my help, but it did need it’s own space to grow and  bloom.

The next morning I walked out on my porch, looked at the vine and realized it was clinging to the fence. At some point during the night, it stood up straight and began making itself at home.

There is no part of your life written in stone.

Are there changes you wish to see?

Your life will change my lovely, once you change your mind.

Bloom where you are planted. If you’re not, then move.

Waiting to Bloom

It’s odd, how you pack up your belongings, and move into a new space. It’s the same stuff you’ve had, but it finds new places to nest. This house doesn’t have a mudroom, so the dogs are fed in a breezeway. Three weeks later, they know which cabinet holds the food, and which drawer has treats.

In Bénisse Cette Maison, Laura Jinkins commented, “I am happy for you and your new adventure. I am especially happy that after such a short period of time, your new abode already feels like HOME.”Looking at her Blog this morning, she has made her house even more of a home.

Making small changes, prepare us for bigger ones.

Laura moved rooms around, and repainted them, giving her home a whole new look, and herself a new work-space. She will be inspired in her freshly painted, private space.

When your heart finds a home, your belongings follow.

Last year, my daughter had been looking at houses online for months, before finding this one. She knew it was going to be a challenge to find a home that would feed both our hearts. I enjoy quiet, and peaceful, and she longed to be near her friends, and all her favorite shops. We knew the area we desired, but where, oh where, was the house?

We drove out to the lake area, over an hour away from where we were living at the time, to look at a house on the market. It was an older home, and the best thing about it was the front door. We walked through, and went from room to room, trying out figure out how to make it work, but it wasn’t right. My daughter was getting discouraged.

If it doesn’t feel like home before you move, keep looking.

As we were driving away from that house, my daughter received an email notification of another house nearby. We stopped by, and what I saw outside, spoke to my heart.

I stood inside this Arbor, looking at the dried vine, and pondered, “Would we bloom at the same time?” There is another vine growing along the fence at the end of the driveway.

The landlord assured me his landscape guy would come, and clean up the weeds clinging to everything. I said, “No. These are not weeds. They are flowers waiting to bloom.”

My daughter and I are freshly planted, and when the time is right, just like these vines, we will be ready to bloom.
