“How right it is to love flowers.” ~ Vincent van Gogh ~
Flowers are like today, love and life…
Yes, I’m going to wax philosophical for a moment with a very visual analogy.
You start today, love and life like a flower bud full of hope for happiness and success. The bud is totally undeveloped, but the potential to become a beautiful flower is there and just waiting to burst forth in awesome splendor.
A little at a time the bud opens and begins to bloom.
With plenty of sunshine, water and fertilizer, the flowers will continue to bloom in vivid and bright color.
Whether you take the time to notice the little things about the flower is entirely up to you.
The little things are what makes up the flower and if you ignore them, you will miss out on so much.
And so it is with today.
You woke up this morning, so you have an opportunity to be happy and successful. Plan the day, work on each task one at a time and by the end of the day, you will have successfully bloomed.
And so it is with love.
The love in a relationship starts out as just a bud of hope. As time passes, the love can bloom if each person appreciates the little things about each other. If the love is cherished, protected and the fragile petals are appreciated, the couple’s love will fully blossom into something beautiful that everyone can see, feel and enjoy.
And so it is with life.
You begin life as a small, helpless infant that eventually buds into an independent adult. Everything you do each day determines how many blossoms fully bloom like the opportunities you face each day.
Your life won’t be accomplished in a day. Instead, it is accomplished one day at a time. The love that you cultivate daily will enhance the daily blossoms.
In the end, you will either have a life full of love and experiences that enriched your soul or you will have abused and squandered the opportunities. It will be totally obvious to everyone which path you choose because the flowers of your life will either be fully bloomed, richly colored, fragrant blossoms or shriveled buds, withered flowers and dead petals scattered all around.
Pay attention to the little things, cultivate, nourish and appreciate them.
The choices you make affect today, the love you can enjoy and the quality of the experiences in your life.
Ignoring your choices is still a choice.
Choose wisely because each choice chooses your future.
Will you be a fully opened blossom that has basked in the sunshine of opportunity and love?
