“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it….it just blooms.”
We all have a unique combination of things, gifts, experiences, abilities, goals, ways of doing things, loves, likes, dislikes, physical attributes, personality traits, mistakes, flaws, perfections, accomplishments, beauty, ugliness, wonder, brain/body chemistry, dna, memories….
It doesn’t make sense to try to have competitions with others and compare ourselves in negative ways.
We all have our own histories, our own pace, our own ways…
Let’s bloom where we’re planted, work with and appreciate what we have and where we are, focus on our own life and context.
“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
Forget what others are doing and wanting and what everyone else has and focus on our own aspirations and desires. There’s always going to be someone with more and with less, with more developed abilities, more accomplishments, more money, and those with less.
There’s always going to be someone who seems to have it all or seems to have accomplished things more quickly.
But we each have our own pace and situations.
“If one is a greyhound, why try to look like a Pekingese?”
This is a beautiful reminder to blossom as our own self, just the way we are. The one next to us may have much more but it doesn’t make us inferior. We all are very similar in some ways and different in other ways.
But no one can take the place of another. ❤
So let's just be us and bloom where we are while loving each other and encouraging others to do the same.
Much love & light, always! ❤
