We are like flowers


Maybe flowers are here to teach us how to be human.

How to unashamedly embrace our true nature, no matter how different or beautiful.

To realize that we’re not meant to look or sound or act the same.

That diversity isn’t just important but necessary for Life.

To keep remembering that there’s a sacred timing to things, that there’s enough room for everyone, and that it’s impossible to bloom all year round.

Maybe flowers are here to teach us how to be human.

To stand tall like the poppy and strong like the thistle.

To be resilient, like heather, and reach our roots deep like the fig.

To defy the norm, like the hawthorn.

To courageously open through our fears wholeheartedly, like the peony.

To be unapologetic, like the passionflower.

To remember our sweet innocence, like jasmine.

To take a leap and go first, like the daffodil.

To be willing to risk it all, like cherry blossom.

To know it’s never too late, like the winter rose.

To trust the changing seasons of our life, like the hydrangea.

Some of us are here to inspire, like the garden rose.

Others are here to activate and protect, like the crown of thorns.

Some are sensitive, like the orchid.

Others are here to leave a mark, like the lily.

Yes, perhaps that’s what flowers are here to teach us:

How to be our unique selves on planet Earth.

Happy Earth Day everyone. May each day be like this. 🌍 🌎 🌏 #earthday
