Why do Bath & Body Work’s Wallflowers defy the well-known rule of “righty-tighty/lefty-loosy”?

Sounds like a futile pursuit…inching down further and further – or making a sudden plunge – to the end of the detangling, frayed fibers. I would guess that few are bold enough to make the journey by choice – based upon the obvious lack of desirability. Yet, ironically, we all are given the opportunity at one point or another to endure a little time right there…at the end of our very own rope.
I can’t advise you on how to make the voyage…or in the ways you’ll recognize your destination (thinkn’ you’ll know) – what I do have to say about this #habitualthoughtsharing is that rather than perfecting your double overhand stopper knot, consider your thought process.
You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule. Matthew 5:3
Attitude (the favorable or unfavorable interpretation of everything) can evoke an actual emotional response…quite possibly resulting in the realization that it’s not so much about the altitude at which you sway on the twisted twine…and maybe a bit more to do with the faithful surrender in which you hang on (or let go – depending on how you look at it).
Perseverance, courage, obedience, hope…all helpful knot tying techniques…along with a good dose of joy in suffering (my #workinprogress). And what about all this rope business? What if the rope is a self-created illusion, an imagined dependence which, without it, we might find the freedom we need to make the very journey we were intended to make – minus the linear synthetic fiber limitations.
Now that’s a knot worth tying..or (k)not.

Destination Hotels & Resorts had invited my two kiddos to help judge last year’s Kid’s Recipe Contest…read more: “Epicurean Democracy for Kids’ Health“…They took themselves very seriously but had a great time sampling and voting for their favorite meals!
The experience was a great opportunity to talk about the importance of voting and what democracy means to our country – and, of course, the importance of nutritious meals and overall health – even when on vacation! The kids’ favorite part: the food was delicious!
The contest will run again this year, March 1 – April 15, 2012.
Favorite recipes can be submitted on the hotel’s community website - public vote will determine the winner!
See the Destination Hotels website for full details. Happy Cooking!
