Do not grow where you are planted --- plant wherever you grow.
I'm my life I have always been a runner. Not in the "I ran a 4 minute Presidential mile" kind of way. But like a "I'm too scared that this place is getting too real for me so I better go someplace new" kind of way.
I always thought that if I ran away I would never have to be the same person. It would be a real chance for change. But the truth is I have grown and changed more since I planted roots. I just realized that those roots are planted in people --- not in a city or a house or a job. I have grown most by investing my heart in friend's journeys and hearts. By investing in my family with an open and forgiving heart. By investing in a "grown up" relationship with real responsibilities to another. I plant now wherever I grow rather than the opposite and that has made all the difference. 🌷🌺🌸🌼
I have also planted in Hamilton Heights --- and my oh my I love it so!
