Hostas are extremely resilient plants. I’ve planted them in the shade. I’ve planted them in the sun. They thrive in both wet and not so wet weather conditions. I have even seen someone who planted a Hosta plant upside down and it somehow still managed to do a turnaround from a downward direction to an upward direction and grew just as it normally would have grown if planted correctly. I think that certainly qualifies it as being an extremely resilient plant.
I can’t help but wonder how many people would benefit if they decided to try to be as resilient as a Hosta plant. How many people would finish their unfinished projects; and run the last lap at the track, lose the last ten pounds they wanted to lose, etc.? If you have some unfinished projects or unreached goals perhaps you should challenge yourself to “Be Resilient like a Hosta” for awhile. Take the Hosta Challenge and find out if it’s a concept that leads to successful results for you.
Very early in my writing career I decided with very little difficulty what I’d use as my tag line because I knew why I wanted to write. I aspired to inspire people to improve and enhance their lives. So, it was logical that my tag line would read “I Aspire To Inspire”. I wanted to make a difference with my writing, whether it was fiction or non-fiction because it was clear that there were many unhappy, confused people in the world who could benefit from a little inspiration. With that in mind I’ve added a new feature to my blog – Wickedly Wise Inspiration Cards.
I’ll be adding a new card every week and I’d love to send them to you to add a little inspiration to your week. If the idea of receiving a little inspiration at an unexpected moment sounds good to you sign up for my Karma Buzz Newsletter. Or check back often if you need a little inspiration.
