assume1 You said it Kermy.


When we assume in singular form we look like this:


When we assume in plural form we look like this:       donkey2


Do not fret, we have all been asses from time to time. Yes, even moi.

Do I get my donkey tail all tied in a knot? Nope. I make mistakes too.


I like to call mistakes – ‘opportunities’.


When you do not realize your opportunity from the assumption(s) you have made- you are 100% an ass.


However, when you do recognize your assumption(s)as learning opportunities , you have graduated from ass to



We all make mistakes which in turn are opportunities


 Plant it   =   opportunity


Or die = relearn



growReplant + Relearn = more opportunities and so on..


Sometimes our opportunities are endless. Repeating themselves over and over again and that’s okay.

I know my opportunities presented themselves countless times but I eventually grew and honoured my opportunities – each and every one.


By being open to it . Self- reflection and Self- awareness ; most importantly, being gentle with myself.  Learning new opportunities take time and work.

Often times, I see closed minded individuals and that can be a dangerous slope -for both parties.

For me: the one trying to provide new perspectives and insights.

For the other:  the one(s) who are determined to keep the mind closed; rejecting new insights and opportunities for growth.closed-minds

What do I do? I stay in the moment. I am gentle with me and with you.       ( whomever you are). Trust me, there are a lot of you.

I often reflect back and I see the seeds I have planted. The seeds from my own opportunities and from the seeds that I planted for others and their opportunities.

We all grow5


Some of us faster than others.grwoth


Some of us more colourful than others.
