Sometimes, when making your way, it helps to go out of the box and dare to do something different than you did before, something different than anyone has ever done before. You might be happily surprised by what you discover.



Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful pink rosebud named Susan.

Susan’s family had bloomed on this special rosebush for literally hundreds of years.

The rosebush looked so healthy, young and alive that the townspeople believed it had special powers. They called it a Magical Rosebush, and they would bring their friends to see it and to smell its lovely fragrance, year after year.

On the year that Susan was born, her brothers and sisters had bloomed beautifully, and they showed off their lovely petals for weeks.

But Susan hadn’t blossomed. She didn’t know why she hadn’t. She felt she should have bloomed by now.

Her worry caused her to wrinkle her leaves and close herself off from receiving all of the wonderful nutrients from the soil, and air.

Oh, dear, she was worried.

Her siblings encouraged her at first, “Susan, it’s okay, you’ll bloom soon, we all do.”

And, “We love you, Susan, just relax and know you’ll do just fine. You'll blossom in time.”

Susan wanted to believe them, she really did. But the more they encouraged her, the more anxious she felt.

The nearby oak trees and pine trees watched Susan struggle and they encouraged her as well.

“Look up, Susan, the sun is shining just for you.”

“Feel the rhythm of the earth underneath you, Susan. You are part of this circle of life. All is well.”

Yeah, you guessed it.

Susan was still worried. Wrinkled forehead and everything.
