A small wildflower that has met the challenge of rocks and stones in its path emerges into the light of the day. Surrounded by an aura of bright golden light it exposes the majesty of its tiny self. Unashamed, it is equal to the brightest sun.
When we are faced with a very difficult situation we we have a choice: we can either be resentful, and try to find somebody or something to blame for the hardships, or we can face the challenge and grow. The flower shows us the way, as its passion for life leads it out of the darkness and into the light.
There is no point fighting against the challenges of life, or trying to avoid or deny them.
They are there, and if the seed is to become the flower we must go through them.
Be courageous enough to grow into the flower you are meant to be."

V. I love the people who are the 'little flowers' in my life. They are family, my friends, my teachers, and on the days when I'm trying so hard to get through the 'cracks' I've learnt from them to stop pushing so hard...to just let go and trust that I am always surrounded by their 'light'... which allows me to feel safe to be who I am, to grow through adversity, to know that I am never truly alone and that I am always loved. I am not privileged...I am blessed.
