How Does Your Garden Grow!!

Why, why does this happen??
Every year even before I have taken my Christmas decorations down, the question starts coming in.
“What is your New Year Resolution?”
 I must admit I use to be one of those people who would begin the year by resolving to do this or that.  Exercise, lose weight, start a hobby, go back to school, better my career or any other such thing.
I am not that person anymore.
Everyday I wake up is a day that I am working on myself.  Every day I wake up is a day to accomplish growth.  Every day I wake up is a day to get it right!!
I strive and push towards being a better me every day.  Why would I wait (procrastinate) to the New Year to grow??
I am planting seeds along the way. I wake up every day with the expectation of seeing a blossom break the ground.  The seeds I have put in the ground are not dead, they are planted!  I water them with my blood, sweat and yes, tears!
I also have seeds that were not planted personally by me.  These are seeds that have found me by just being around people who are bloomed.  Because I am in proximity of their open blossoms, the wind occasionally blows pollen from them onto me.  Unexpected blessings!!
So, you see, every day I am planting, tending, anticipating and sometimes surprised by blessings. 
When the clock chimes midnight on December 31st, 2018 and rolls me into January 1st, 2019 I will walk into my garden and Bloom!!
