Flower-ishing

Originally posted on The Chronicles of Roni:
In brief, flourishing is what one makes of it.

Aristotle said: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” I’m unsure if it’s possible, in words, to describe just how important these words are to me. This philosophy; this belief that skills, thoughts, beliefs, habits, personality even, can be changed/altered/grown (or discarded) with… Continue reading
