You have to take time to live. Living takes time. -Eleanor McMillen Brown
Living takes our whole lives. But I know lots of people who are just surviving, not even really "living." Myself, I prefer to THRIVE. You know, the whole growing thing -- the idea of me, being planted in the ideal environment. Sun-loving plants belong in sunny locations ... shade-loving plants don't. My environment, which is under my own control, is pretty close to ideal for me. So, as a result, I thrive! I wish more people had that experience in life. It really does have a profound effect on my outlook, my options, and my overall happiness!
