Kangaroo Paw Week


Black kangaroo paws are spectacular and unlikely wildflowers from Western Australia. They feel like velvet — which is something you probably can’t guess from the photo.

A Kangaroo Paw Week is equally idiosyncratic. It has a distinctive feel, a kind of itch to be out and about, attacking life. You’re unashamedly “you” this week, totally tired of trying to be all things to all people.

It’s a week of tiny conflicts because some folks fear/resent/envy efforts to be true to yourself. Don’t escalate the conflicts (I’m such a wuss!), but don’t cave in and smooth over the jagged edges that are you being you, being real.

Honestly, if you can’t be you in a Kangaroo Paw Week, when will you be? Take a chance and shine.
