I look at you and I am astonished at the force with which you take my breath away! True to yourself and none other, you boldly stand and display your traits in an open bowl of difference that, overflows with possibilities. You offer your differences up to the world, not for judgment, but to generously share. I celebrate the strength and beauty in your soulful differences displayed so proudly. Please accept my thanks, for a different point of view is a priceless gift.
You follow no convention. You are not one to “get along”. You are stalwart and dependable to always surprise. How admirable to be so self assured, and so well defined. I do not expect you to bend with the wind or to grow and spread over to another patch of this earth. You occupy your space with firm conviction. You are surprising and refreshing and challenging as you proclaim that no one should expect anything conventional from you.
I can rely that you will be different and proud and amazing. I can rely that you will wake me up from my hazy gaze of everyday sameness and I will then be able to see again with fresh eyes. You are a endlessly fascinating paradox and a challenge; never easy to figure out, but then I have learned, where’s the fun in predictability?
You are free and in being so, you free others. Hurrah!
Have a Weederful Christmas everyone! I hope you have a fascinating paradox in your life to keep things interesting.
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.

Beautifully written, inspirational, I wish I was a weed….
Thank you Random Rose. You know, I think we all are weeds, deep down inside. Do we not feel like we don’t belong? Do we not feel like we are too different from all the “beautiful people”? And look at me, I think differently about things, yet I find myself or my truths in weeds. I am so happy to hear your kind words.
