Echo the patterns found in nature

Pine trees at Llogara Pass, Albania

Pine trees at Llogara Pass, Albania

The most perfect actions echo the patterns found in nature…Study the teachings of the pine tree, the bamboo, and the plum blossom. The pine is ever green, firmly rooted and venerable. The bamboo is strong, resilient and unbreakable. The plum blossom is hardy, fragrant and elegant.

~ Morihei Ueshiba, The Art of Peace


About Vicki Flaherty

I feel most alive when I am creating, whether through my writing and poetry, gardening and photography, or simply living my life each day. Running and yoga enrich my being. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. I share my gratitude for all the gifts in my life on my This Abundantly Delicious Life blog. I find a special joy in helping people succeed. I’ve done something valuable when I’ve helped a colleague or friend see their brilliance and express their full potential. I have awesome opportunities to do this as an industrial/organizational psychologist through leadership, mentoring, coaching, career and other talent programs. I try to encourage Leading with Intention at my blog of this name. As a breast cancer survivor, I found comfort and hope in writing. Poetry flowed through me like a river of healing during my diagnosis and treatment, which I share on my Mostly My Heart Sings blog, that I might offer encouragement and a place of grace and heart for those seeking comfort and hope along their journey.

  1. Gosh, to be all those things at one time… is that what success looks like?? Or perhaps it is the foundation for behavior that results in success… thanks for sharing!
