“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anais Nin
A flower blossoms, it grows and blossoms, two very clear jobs encoded within its DNA. A flower comes into being with a few goals and effortlessly fulfills its purpose without so much as a brain.
When a flower blossoms, it leaves the world an infinitely more beautiful place.
We humans could take a few hints from our friend the flower: We could try to keep things simple, allow ourselves to be more focused on our growth and life purpose. To allow time to ponder these thoughts daily would be a perfect way to begin to allow either growth or life purpose to unravel. (Guided Imagery, meditation or time spent in communion with silence are helpful techniques for personal development.) If we humans took the risk to blossom, we as well would leave the world a more beautiful place.
