This was taken on my walk through the Rose Gardens the other night. In my heart, I wasn’t just in a tucked away garden in the middle of Tulsa… I was as excited as if I were exploring the Redwood Forest, or walking through meadows in Yellow Stone, or on a hike through the Appalachians.
Some of these places I have seen before, some I have not… I used say, “Someday when we can afford to go on adventures…” But I’m realizing how insignificant money truly is in the grand scheme of things. Money calls the shots so often… the only thing money cannot do is give me experiences. I could pay thousands to explore the world, and just be glued to my phone, or argue with my family.
I get to choose to be present, regardless of where I am… So this week, the Tulsa Rose Garden was the most magical place of all, because I was fully there.
