Bloom where you’re planted

There are many interpretations of the popular saying, but this one is my fave:


Trust me, if you’ve done everything you can to “bloom” at work – with the job itself or certain people at the job – it’s not you…it’s the environment. Do yourself a favor and quit trying to make a square peg fit in a round hole. Move on. 

Last night, Boomer and I attended the Summer Reading Celebration Kick-Off Party at the public library. One of my librarian colleagues hadn’t seen me for a few months and remarked how happy I looked. Same with a  R.E.A.D. family from our former library in West Cobb who stopped by to see us. What really made my heart happy was a pair of students from my former school who came up, gave me a hug and told me how much “many people at my former school really missed me”.  Believe me sweetie, there are many things I miss about my former school, but the new one has proven to be a much better fit.

I changed my environment and now I’M BLOOMING.
