“Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dreams. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dreams.”– Lao Tzu

We all want it…we all need it to survive in many ways…Nurturing. If a new born baby doesn’t get the proper nurturing they can die…it is called “failure to thrive”. They need touch, warmth and gentleness to get a good start in life. We need one another to survive and move on to thrive. Nurturing comes in many forms…a gentle touch to the shoulder to let you know all will be ok…a wide smile that signals…I am sooo doggone proud of you I could burst…or that dreaded “raised eyebrow” that reminds you to not cross that line or there will be consequences…or that look from across a crowed room that says…Let’s get out of here…I only want to be with YOU.

Water+ nourishment+ love+ touch = Nurturing….be it a garden, a pet, a job, a child, a marriage, friendship, your dreams. Let’s go out today and look for someone that needs a wee bit of nurturing. Share your smile, a kind word of encouragement, half of your sandwich, a funny story, pat on the back, a hug or a cup of coffee or tea.
