The world is rich, thickly planted with possibilities and options and gifts. The right path to take may not always be clear, instead sometimes the choices may be so overwhelming that they obscure your view and may cause you to feel like the way is blocked. But look at each weed, each singular piece of the puzzle as one small bit that, when joined together make a beautiful field of growth, of life. Each piece can be taken aside and appreciated for itself. If that piece does not help add to a balanced whole, it can be discarded or ignored. It can be brushed away to make a clearing for progress.
Our lives need the wheat and the chaff, the grain and the straw, the good and the bad to create a symphony of high and low notes with drama and highlights that make the dark notes striking and precious in their piercing melancholia, and make the high notes soaring and pure in their clarity and hope.
The message that this field of weeds has for you is this. “You will find your way.” Accept that the good and the bad happen together, side by side, one right after the other. Look to find the benefits that each offer and you will be treated to a balanced view of life which will enable you to find your path.
On this day I am thankful for all the forces that make up my life, the good things that fill me with delight and hope, and the painful ones that teach me to be stronger and force me to see my way through hardship. I am thankful for the lessons life teaches to me on a daily basis. I am thankful for the wheat and the chaff, because without one, I would not be able to appreciate the other.
Love and peace to all, may your day today be weederful and full of things to be thankful for.
Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.
We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.
