The Bee and the Rose

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,
One clover, and a bee,
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
We all must think like a bee and create our own “prairies.” If something as tiny as a bee can take one small clover and make a prairie then surely we must all follow our dreams to create something great.

I came across this quote the other day. I had never heard of Asha Tyson so I was curious to find out who she was. As it turns out, she is a motivational speaker now and has quite an interesting story. But, that is another story for another day. Her words here are powerful. The fact that our journey, whether it’s what we had in mind or not, was exactly what it needed to be is something to stop and think about. How often do you look back on your journey and think about the path that led you to where you are now?
Too often we look at our past and we say, “Oh i wish I had done things differently,” rather than taking a moment to realize that it is our past, and the experiences we have, that make us who we are today. If you change your past then your present and future would be different and you would not be in the same now. With that being said, I have had a long journey to get where I am now. But I am here now and I am at peace with my journey! I do believe that each and every situation that I encountered had brought me to my now and that my now is right on time.
Thank you Asha Tyson for saying it best – now is right on time!
I am starting this blog to document my journey, my UNIQUE journey, and even though there were times in my past that I thought I should have started a blog and didn’t, now is right on time!
