Being a visionary and an entrepreneur has been challenging—especially being a Black woman from humble beginnings. Long working hours and sicker than ever patients weigh such a heavy toll on healthcare providers and small business owners. Finding outlets to relax & appreciate the divine inspirations that are all around us has been very therapeutic for me. Through a friend’s suggestion, the opportunity to attend the Philadelphia Flower Show for a stress relieving weekend was suggested. I was totally in awe. Gardens, flowers, trees, and plants can be a quiet and nurturing space for contemplation, conversation, and connection with friends and loved ones. I also learned that there are Horticultural Therapy Center partnerships with hospitals that provide rehab for patients to achieve optimal health and wellness—another vision of mine here at home.
