I was walking, lost in my thoughts when I noticed it. It had your name spelled on its unusual petals. A little bit out of place, alone in front of the house. A flower I had never seen before. I stopped on the sidewalk. Staring, and hoping the house’s owner wouldn’t notice me, and ask me to leave, as I bent on one knee to snap a picture.
This beauty isn’t perfect. Far from it. Its petals are uneven and some are a little crooked. It looks a little lonely, and it is definately not the kind we are used to see in a bouquet… Yet, it caught my eye, and I found it Gorgeous, just like you.
Just days ago, it grew out of the ground, and worked hard to bloom. It unfolded slowly and it had to fight bugs. It had to endure rain and strong winds, and though its stem probably bent more than it wanted it to, this little miracle ended up standing. Alive.
So remember, when you feel blue and you wonder why you should keep going… There will always be someone to stop and notice you. There will always be people to see that you only stand out because you are unique!
And that, my friend, is a good thing!
