Flowers have always played a special role in my life—I love how they look, how some smell so sweet, the colors, and even the idea of flowers is magical–at first there is nothing, then a bud appears with so much potential for beauty and joy, and as if by some unseen hand of grace, a miracle happens and we see the most incredible, spectacular creation!
Whenever we feel sad or depressed, and need our spirits uplifted, we can go outside and look for these miraculous creations—they’re out there simply waiting for us to show up to acknowledge their existence.
Today I went into my garden twice just to smell the honeysuckle. Not only is just a vine with flowers, but this particular vine grew from a 5” piece (with flowers) that my love plucked from a plant growing wild in the woods over 15 years ago—a little token of his affection. So when I see this plant, not only do I enjoy the present moment, I also enjoy the happy memory. It’s what I call having The Inside Advantage — living deeply, joyfully, and successfully.
Although life can bring us sorrow, it’s up to us to choose to focus like a laser on the good things. We always have a choice on what we think about—what we allow in our minds and hearts.
