Bloom in the Right Garden October 29, 2009

Having spent four years as a Career Counselor, Shareology often draws on a garden concept to clarify where people are in their lives.  (A garden analogy?   Are you surprised?  Use the search box on the right to find the post on morning glories, Shareology Shares Gardening Glory.) 

A cactus cannot bloom in the rain forest.  An orchid cannot bloom in the desert.  Each plant is elegant and perfect in itself, but it needs the right garden to bloom and grow.   The same applies to people  — are you in the right garden?  Finding the right garden to bloom in makes all the difference.  

One way to transition from your desert to your tropical rain forest is to begin with non-work activities, whether volunteer work, education or networking.   This softens the transition, but ultimately?   Finding the right garden to bloom in makes all the difference.

Shareology loves gardens:  gardens inside, gardens outside, gardens on the 11th floor.  Here’s a peek at some of the glories Shareology planted on the 11th floor balcony and in City Bella park:

And outside at City Bella, the following are enjoying September:

Morning glories last until the last killing frost, so enjoy them as September blooms….

Shareology can’t (and shouldn’t) spend 100% of her existence on Marketing. In a salute to the well rounded life, periodically Shareology will share (one more share and I’m gonna get fined by the writer’s union) her vision of the Twin Cities. Today she takes you to the Japanese Garden, tucked behind Normandale Community College in Bloomington. Guess what she discovered there?

Well, that’s the Tranquility Tour, folks. At one point, Shareology spotted four koi happily swimming together under bridges and over rocks. These koi are so big that the great blue heron that terrorized my sister’s pond in Rapid City wouldn’t stand a chance; these koi are not bite size!
