Growth Potential

I get such a thrill from repotting plants.. Seeing the growth potential for the plant by giving them room to grow in a bigger better pot with new soil.. There's a chance though that the pot will reject it's new surroundings.. May not like the dirt, may not like the new spot you choose for it to be.. But, if it does choose to survive, what a bigger, prettier, stronger plant you will have! Its leaves are usually larger! It's color, more vibrant! Sounds like us when we make it out of a bad situation! We often think we are stuck in that bad dirt with nowhere to go.. We start to die a little, feeling trapped and stunted by what's around us.. Oh, but when we get the opportunity to outstretch our arms and make it to new ground with promise , what a NEW PERSON we become!

Lie vs TRUTH

The older I get the more things that used to bother me no longer do... I'm affected by things NOW that used to NOT bother me.. Like lying for instance... I used to just dismiss it and move on, but NOW I see things so differently.. The fact that you would rather lie than tell the truth upsets me.. You have so little respect for me that I'm not worthy of the TRUTH..  The gall..  I have to remember though, that regardless of how well you treat some folks, they will NEVER treat you as they should.. What a hard lesson to repeatedly learn..
