If I were my own best friend I would remind myself to be thankful for…


***Outside my home stands a row of cherry trees. Up until a week or so ago they all looked the same – grey-brown-black bark, no leaves, no blooms, no hint of anything different between them. Then one lone tree sprouted tiny little green buds. Days later it exploded into pink and cream blossoms. 

This one tree stands out amongst all the others, a bright eruption of color and scent. The rest remain dark and drab. I look at this one tree in full bloom and I think of the people out there who are moving ahead of the curve. The innovators. 

These people look at the world around them, the row of black trees without buds, and they decide, why not bloom now? They step out of line and do it their own way, snow, sleet, rain and freezing weather be damned! They know they might lose, but then again, they also might win (big). And if you never take the chance and try something new or different, you will never know what could be… 

So, today I would like to say “thank you” to all those people I know (and don’t know) who have decided to bloom “early”, to go against the grain, and to make a difference. In the same way this lone cherry tree brings me joy everyday, so do those of you who are pushing the envelope. Thanks.
