When the flowers grow…….it will be bootiful!!! 😀
I spend a lot of time in my garden/yard.
It is my little sanctuary, where I escape to have some peace, where I create, where I soothe my inner child, where I think and where I pray 🙂
This hydrangea was being sold cheap, because it was virtually dead. But, I’ve taken off the dead yucky leaves, and nurtured it and it has a mass of new, healthy leaves growing 🙂
Picnic basket ^^^ ….re-purposed/re-cycled…. for some ferns to grow in the shade 🙂
My baby Jacaranda tree….. which apparently may bust this pot as it gets much bigger….which if that happens, I will deal with then 🙂
My bootiful Bird of Paradise……which flowered for the first time this year 🙂
My cute stuff, hanging from the tree 🙂
I wrote this post and shared it onto my healing page……because it is an area of my own healing I have needed to face and work through…
One real sign of emotional intelligence……is being able to hear criticism and not get upset and react from a place of hurt.
And not just immediately dismissing it.
That’s the ‘hurt defensive ego’ reaction.
EQ, is about hearing the criticism, discerning the heart/soul giving the criticism, thinking whether there is any merit and validity and if there is, accepting that with maturity and honesty and then choosing to grow from it.
I know I have achieved what I set out to do…..when I receive comments like this in response.
“Your posts always make me think 🙂 thank you”
I don’t expect or insist anyone agree with me….
But, if I help people to think…. that is only ever a good thing.
