One plus One = Six.  Figure out that math.  Discernment,  humility, voice,  vision,  people  understanding,  and  empathy.  Makes  sense  to  me.

About Celestine

Additional Information

I  grew  up amid this  beautiful  pecan tree  in  my  backyard  -  which  represented  the  eiptome  of  hovering branches,  knotty  limbs,  and  deep  roots.    The  tree was  special in  that  as  a child,  it  was  the  center of our  personal  playground.    As  well,  it  was the  source  of  our  Christmas money  in that  we were  responsible for  picking  our  own  bags  of  pecans  to  sell.    But  we also had  to rake those  leaves ;  piles  and  piles of  leaves.  The  fall bounty was worth it.    


The  pecan  tree  also  meant  alot  more  -  it  helped  to  shape  “my  voice”.    My  father  was well known  in  the  community  and shared  his voice ,  as  a counselor ,  to  members  of  the  community  who  needed  to  hear  his  wisdom;  which  he  had  no  problems  with sharing.    My  bedroom  window  was  right  at  the  pecan  tree;  and  me ,  being  naturally  nosy,  listened  to  people  that  came  and  talked with “Dad”.     With his  words,  Dad  shared  his  points  of  view  and had  this narurall  talent  of  listening ,  difusing,  as  necessary,  and  standing  behind  his  words.    I “heard”  how  he  spoke,  I  listened,  and  I  learned.    


Vocationally  and  avocationally,  I  have  always used  my  writing.   Currently,  I  am  repurposing  me  after  over  45  years  in  Human  Resources.    I  love  this  opportunity to  utilize  those  skills  that flow  through “my  voice”  via  my  writing.    I  learned the  strength of  humility from  my  Mom.    This  character strength  humbled  me,  for  at  an  early  age,  i  realized  I  was my  “daddy’s  girl”.   Humbleness  plus  “voicing “  makes  for  an  interesting  combination..  This was my  lesson,  and I  learned  it  at  an early  age.   Of  course,  let’s not  forget  that  I  am  the  youngest  of  seven  siblings.  


The  best  outcome  of  “a  voice”  and  humbleness  is  my  gift  of  ”discernment”.
