Smell the Roses

“Living is not enough…one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” Hans Christian Andersen

Here on Marco Island, we have flowers the year around…one reason I love living here. But for those of you in northern climates, ’tis the season of crocus poking their heads through the snow or cherry blossoms about to bloom. It was always a thrill for me to discover that first sign of spring in my garden.

As you can tell, I’m a big fan of flowers…growing in the yard, in a vase on the kitchen table, potted on the porch. I read somewhere that when you buy flowers at the grocery store they are as good for your health as the broccoli next to them. I believe it!

Feeling low? Buy yourself some flowers.

Affirmation: I will surround myself with what brings me joy.

Coaching question: What will you put around you that brings you joy?
