Every Petal Tells a Story...
Dale Carnegie once wrote:
“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon, instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.”
Isn't it true?
Today, I will keep my post short and sweet and be thankful for the effects of the glorious weather that we're currently enjoying in the UK! It's all about flower power. I will share some of the pictures which I took a few days ago. I'm grateful that despite the busy schedules and other things to do, I found the strength to walk away from it all and capture beautiful moments on camera. Every beautiful plant or flower tells a story of its own.
The petals in bloom speak of hope and that nothing lasts forever. The trees full of blossom have endured cold winters for months. They have shed leaves during autumn (fall) and are now being rewarded with new petals. What habits do you need to let go of to experience further growth in your life? What do you need to prune that you can become fruitful in abundance? Ungratefulness is one of them. I've learnt that you have to let go of what you've been holding onto so that you can experience healthy growth.
Day 3 of 30
I am thankful for all the dark moments that I've endured, for they taught me to be strong and activate coping mechanisms I never thought possible. Sometimes, being buried is a blessing in disguise. When there's no sunshine or light to guide you, remember that inner strength comes not just from what surrounds you but from within. Some of the harsh experiences happen to teach us valuable life lessons and help us rediscover what we lost or never knew we had.
This Easter, I am taking a moment to enjoy and be thankful for all signs of life and restoration around me. I will make every moment count, capture the beautiful surroundings and preserve memories. I will enjoy the fruit when harvest comes and keep myself topped up with gratitude as an antidote for stormy days.
I hope you, too, can smell the roses around you.
That rose could be quality time with a loved one, your favourite book, movie, or good music that you love. Do anything that reminds you that it's good to be alive.
Do not put off living any longer. Don't be caught up by what others are doing; the joy you seek could be near you.
I hope you rediscover hidden moments of joy in your surroundings and be grateful. Perhaps, it starts with the simple act of jotting them down.
Oprah Winfrey once said, "Be thankful for what you have, you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never have enough."
Have a lovely day!
