December Quote and Growing

“Hide not your talents.  They, for use, were made.  What’s a sundial in the shade?”
~Benjamin Franklin

Growing PaperwhitesAnd what I have to add:    “Growing.  Sometimes the growing comes with struggle.  Actually, most of the time the growing comes with struggle.   Embrace the struggle.”

Writing Exercise:  Spend a half-hour making a list of all of your talents and skills and include the ones you want to develop.

For more on the growing via “forcing” of PaperWhites (Narcissus) Bulbs, see past Post from October 2011, and under the Cloud Tag of Holiday Traditions.
