Honestly, it doesn’t take much to make me happy. I really truly can’t wait to win the lotto to become happy. If I did that, I’d likely be miserable for the rest of my life and is just not going to work for me.
So, somewhere along the way I adopted a ‘glass half full’ type of mentality and I try to look for those ‘awww’ moments in everyday life. The other day it was the cat sleeping on its cozy little chair. Today, it’s my baby aloe plants.
By now, you have to know that I do not have a green thumb. Pals would disagree with me and comment about all the plants I have adopted but all I really do is water them and hope for the best (the aloe plant of long ago that actually burst when I touched it can attest to the fact that I do not have a green thumb). I say all this because it gives you a really good reference point to fully appreciate just how miraculous these baby aloe plants are.
Take a look at them. They continue to grow and I’ve been so paranoid about them. I worried that I might over water them from being too overzealous about their existence. Then, I worried that I might not water them enough. What if they needed more water to sustain themselves in that early life cycle? What if they needed more sun?
ACK! Too many thoughts, too many questions!
Luckily, the baby aloe plants are still thriving and I get a big goofy grin on my face whenever I look at those little grin bits pushing up from the soil. Part of me thinks the big aloe plant felt sorry for me and earlier aloe mishap and decided to give me a second chance.
Well, I’ll take it, thank you very much!
Things to do: even if you don’t have a green thumb, green up your living space and get a few green plants. If I can do it, so can you!
