The sun warms me as it rises and the grey of the cold dawn retreats until the night is transformed into day. I awaken and I realize that today is the day I shall surrender. Today is the day I will bloom. I have been preparing for this moment; anticipating and imagining it, waiting for the time I would be ready. And now, the time is here!
I know my starring role will be a short lived one. I can see that from the others that have gone before me. On other days I might lament that my time in bright pink will be short, but today, today is the day to cast away thoughts like that. Today is the day to make my mark and make it bright!
I take a moment and gather all the good forces within me. I concentrate, dig deep, and time slows down. From within a place of purity comes a resolve and a force that cannot be stopped. It starts with a sense of my true self that is like a warmth in my heart and the heat bursts forth, flooding into every cell of my being. It radiates past the boundaries of my person and out into the air. The sunlight shimmers, my aura glows and a new sweet, “just been born” fragrance perfumes the air in a cloud around me. I am open. I am in bloom!
We can’t all be weeds. Of that I am very aware. We also can’t be roses or daisies or orchids. We are now what we will be for all our lives, and what we have been all along. What a surprise, that all the waiting for the perfect moment was not the key to blooming.
The key to blooming is the surrender that comes from accepting who we are. And so today, I resolve to take a leap of faith. Join me, and close your eyes and open up your hearts to the imperfect creature that you are, and surrender. You will bloom, and you will be amazing!
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.
