Strength like a flower, will keep you carrying on again and again.....




Sometimes it's easier to give up than to keep going. Random road blocks come our way & we retreat, thinking there's no way we can go through that. But, the truth is, we can go through anything and come out at the other side when we believe we can. I know your most of you are thinking how does persevering connect with flowers, well it does really. If you look at it from a flower's point of view. To get the beautiful flowers out in the spring, they must go through the cold lonely hits of winter. And when they come out too early, they have to stand tall and wait for the sun to shine again. The same as people, we get knocked over, we get back up and grow stronger. We reach for the light of the sun and bloom and blossom into something even more beautiful than we imagined. Sometimes we need the rain to appreciate the sunshine....bad times can bring good times. We learn from the bad times to appreciate the good ones more than we would have if we always had great times. What we have to do is be like the flowers and persevere and when we get our chance, we need to bloom and show our colours like we we're meant to before our moment fades. Certainly, sometimes the thing we wanted turns out to not be what we need, but if we never went for it in the first place, we would have never found out what we truly wanted...so either way you haven't lost, you've won!! Always see through what you want to achieve, the road you need will turn up eventually and you'll never look back and think what if!?! Just like if the flowers never bloomed, we wouldn't get the chance to appreciate their beauty!! All positives. Have a gorgeous Monday dolls.

Love loves

  20. Kizzy, your analogy holds so true! What an inspirational post! Like a flower that has yet to BLOOM! Too many people give up too quickly. Have faith, pray and persevere. It's important to hang in there. OMG'D Kizzy!!! I was reading your post and when you announced the winner, it hit me like a ton of bricks! I'm so happy! Pandas are a sign of good luck. So this means SO MUCH to me! I will treasure it doll. Thank you so much! This has made my Monday. Have a great week doll. ((hug))

  21. Love this likeness between flowers and how we humans grow like them. It's so true! And if the rain makes our "petals" open up like the ones of flowers, I'm going to be in full bloom tomorrow! I don't think I've ever been as soaked by the rain as I was today! Haha! But it wasn't just raining - it was RAINING!!! And after just a short work to my car it looked as if I had taken a shower with my clothes on! :D But since it wasn't that cold outside it felt quite refreshing ;) Tomorrow I have a job interview, so I really need to blossom as much as I can then! :) xxxxxxx

  32. I couldn't do without your "wisdom posts", because the way you dispense wisdom, from your heart, like you have learnt from your own experiences (as I think you have) goes straight to my heart. I would love for you to check out a poem by my favourite Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi. The title is "La Ginestra" (it's a flower "the Broom"). I think it embodies what you have said today. I wish you a great week beautiful flower! Yours, Coco
