“Stop and smell the flowers” is a good starting point. But why not stay with the flower?
Have you ever really looked at what makes up the flower? Its petals, the stamen, the actual layout and folding over of different petals… it’s quite remarkable. Appreciate the wisdom behinds its creation… its unfolding process as it blooms… and its journey of growth. It’s simple and complex in its beauty and expression. It also endures so much with changing seasons, from brilliant sunlight to wind gusty rain.
And so are you. Appreciate the beautiful simplicity and complexity of you and each of our fellow men, women and children. Be open and beautiful; endure.
