A Flower Just Grows November 18, 2012

Downsides and risks
Worst case scenarios

No wonder we lose our nerve and succumb to cowardice

Upsides and rewards
Best case scenarios

Never taking our eyes off the prize, we forge ahead

When people remind us of
potential risks and possible pitfalls

Are they looking out for us?

Or hoping to maintain the quo status?

A flower just grows.
