For the past 3 years, I've been slowly working on converting the small patch of land between myself and the neighbor into a wildflower patch. It has been a slow process with many trials and tribulations (droughts, bad seed, aggressive weeds, etc.). This summer I found myself getting frustrated with the weeds growing in the wildflower patch. My friends were kind enough to point out to me that maybe my perfectionism was getting in the way. Point well taken! I was obsessing over a "picture' perfect vision vs. the reality of life. When I finally stopped dwelling on what was wrong with my wildflower patch and started to really observe it, I noticed that the bees, birds, and the cats really didn't care about the weeds sprinkled in with the wildflowers. In fact, they all seemed to enjoy the jungle-feeling atmosphere. Besides...
What is a weed?
A plant whose gifts and virtues have not been discovered yet.
As I typed that quote...I suddenly had a big "AHA" moment. Isn't that exactly what I stand for? Isn't that exactly what my on-line and in-person offerings at the Kent Emporium stand for? Every one-on-one session, every class, and every workshop allows people the opportunity to discover their own gifts in a safe nurturing environment surrounded by a supportive community of like-minded people.
What people see as weeds within themselves are actually undiscovered gifts.
So actually, those pesty weeds were trying to get my attention and talk to me this summer! Guess I better get outside and start recording some of their music between now and the first frost!
So, what has been annoying you lately?
Is this one of your undiscovered gifts trying to get your attention?
