Within my fortress I shelter all the goodness, kindheartedness, innocence and honesty I can contain. On the inside I am eternally optimistic and I believe always in the goodness of others. There is always a sunnier side to stormy days and a rainbow at the conclusion of a cloudburst. The tough times will make us stronger and we will learn beautiful lessons from each hard step.
And to protect all that inner goodness, I need armor. I need thorns and cynicism and hard cold facts to bolster me and increase the load I can bear. My thorns ward off the negative thoughts by attacking fears head on. I need my thorns and my bristles just as much as I need the soft bits of love that make life so much rosier.
All things that threaten my dreams and the dreams of my family are in danger when my thorns are out. Beware! No negativity allowed here!
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.
