Thoughts on the impacts of those tiny nagging "to do's" that can really take a toll on your journey if not dealt with.

Just like the barbs on rose bushes growing along our path of life.

Loose Ends nick and nip us attempting to break our resolve and purpose.

We can see the artistry of the blooms just past the bramble if only we could seize them.

Loose Ends pierce and slash us attempting to convince us that the path is impassable.

We afflict ourselves with wounds and malady from the mere stings and twinges caused by the thistle.

We need only prune back the nettle through steadfast action and clear perspectiveto open the path of our journey siezing the fragrant blossomsthatare ours for the taking.
