“Like a wildflower; you must allow yourself to grow in all the places people never thought you would.”
I found this pretty little flower growing in a crack in the sidewalk the other day.
I just HAD to snap a picture of it.
Here this beautiful flower was growing in the most unlikely of places.
How many of us are like this flower?
Or rather, how many of us could be like this flower, but let outside influences keep us from thriving?
This little flower didn’t need everything to be perfect to take root and grow.
It found an opportunity, regardless of what the circumstances were, and grew.
So many of the things I’ve done in my life, I’ve had people ask me, “Well why would you want to do that?”
Homeschooling, fitness instructor, event planner, making wedding cakes. Quite literally all of these things I have done have been in the face of opposition.
“It will be too hard.”
“Why are you wasting your time?”
If I hadn’t let go of my fear and doubt and made the decision to grow, even when all the odds were against me, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
I still have a lot of growing to do. But I am grateful for the opportunity to be like that little flower and to look at the small cracks of life and grow.
Have you had moments where you’ve bloomed where you’ve been planted?
Or have you let fear and self-doubt keep you from becoming who you are supposed to be?
You are capable of AMAZING things so go and plant yourself in unusual places.
