Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

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 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.
