I Am Zucchini: A Tale of Flourishing

I’m sharing inspiration from my home garden on flourishing in harvest time. This uplifting 6-minute speech was given during a recent Toastmasters meeting…I hope it puts a smile on your face! Stay encouraged, Kayren 🙂

“Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.”

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

Unwrap the Gift of YOU!

Have you ever received a really nice gift and thought, “I’ll save this for a special occasion,” or “I’ll wear it for a fancy celebration,” or “I’ll use it when the time is right” – and before you know it, you’ve forgotten that you even had the gift? Then a few months later, when you’re walking around with a raggedy high-heeled shoe shooting off sparks behind you or wearing a torn item of clothing, you remember, “Hey – I’ve got a great new pair of shoes and a new outfit nestled in the back of my closet! Why am I going out looking crazy?” Well, that’s happened to me more times than I care to admit! I knew the giver must’ve spent a pretty penny (or at least some time and energy) getting me the “just right” gift and looking forward to me making good use of it…only to find that I tucked it away and failed to maximize the gift’s capacity.

Years ago, I became more mindful of this principle after my home was broken into. Thankfully, no one in my family was harmed (we weren’t at home when it happened), but some valuable items were taken. Sadly, I must admit those stolen items included one set of jewelry that I wore so seldom (though it was given to me for a significant milestone) that my husband realized it was missing before I did. He GAVE it to me, but I didn’t even realize it was gone.

How many times have we been in that situation with valuable gifts God has given us? Additionally, how many of us don’t realize that we are gifts that He has given to be a blessing to others? II Corinthians 4:7 reminds us that we have treasure (something of great worth) in earthen vessels. It’s time to unwrap the gift of YOU! No matter what your container looks like, the product inside is precious to God!

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”

(II Corinthians 4:7)

Nailed It!!! 💅🏾🦋

I’m looking at this lovely butterfly all the time…so mesmerizing!
Kourtney’s nail genius on display!

After a few short months of being her client, I am certain that Kourtney KNOWS me – and this helps her deliver a prime customer service experience every time.

You KNOW your nail tech is a keeper when she:

  1. Guides you to a color combo that eases you into the neon you’ve been hesitant to try for 3 seasons but it still works in a professional corporate setting 🤓
  2. Deciphers your ambiguous ask for “blingalicious” 💎 and pulls it off without using your prime obsession: gold glitter topcoat 
  3. Understands that your indecision between fill-in vs. gel polish vs. complete soak-off (so you can ambitiously do your own nails😯 with cheap polish from the drugstore😳…which will never happen because it takes more time than it’s worth and you get more product on your skin than on your nails🥴) is pure foolishness…and lets you run with that circular reasoning until you remember that your nail appointment is a valuable investment🎯 in your self-care and mental well-being 🥳 #SelfCareIsNOTselfish
  4. Patiently waits 🤐 until you realize (on your own) that you’re aggravated because you need the fill-in and cut-down within 3 weeks instead of trying to stretch it to 4 weeks (or beyond…#Guilty)
  5. Incorporates your child’s college colors (#AggiePride💙💛), your love of stickers, AND your business logo for transition, renewal, and rebirth in one fell swoop 🦋
  6. AND you BOTH laugh and cry🤣 in the same appointment because it’s a sistah chat, venting session, and therapy all rolled into one

At least that’s how it was for me! I left her chair with a song in my heart, ready to face the world again…with super-fabulous nails!

Thank you, Kourtney!💓🤗 Follow her on IG @huesovhazel to be dazzled by her creativity and artistry…

I hope you find great service that brings you similar nail joy…or book with Kourtney if you’re in the area – just don’t take MY appointment time, PLEEEEZE!😊😉 

“…but by love serve one another.”

(Galatians 5:13b)

1Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

(Hebrews 12:1-2)
