Ever walk by a fence and notice those flowers popping through? I take a moment to value this beauty. Find connection to these moments. From encouraging my dog to take a sniff with me, to appreciating each petal and all its colors. Maybe I even choose to capture some photos. Beauty inspires me and my sparkly eyes attract positive opportunity. This flower’s growth reaches me, offering me joy while simultaneously setting itself free. I get lost in the symbolism. If my mind gets carried away with analogies or stretches of reality, that’s just more for me to appreciate and find joy from.
While we might have walls up or obstacles in our path, our growth continues to push us forward. Growth is the key ingredient to breaking free from all hindrances. We must find and take in the light that surrounds us. These flowers poking out draw attention to all the rest of the life within these fences. Beauty yet to be discovered. Endless potential for more growth, more breakthroughs. Just as rainy days provide growth, growth provides escape. It is the storms we live through that we learn from and the learning that we find freedom through. These fences only block what we leave unnoticed. Notice your potential.
Each one of us came to this world in the same way. However, we all have different hurdles personal to our own story. Some of us might have barbed wire to break through, some of us unhindered by a fence or a barrier. The challenge of too much freedom is also valid. Lack of restraint creates problems too. Self taught borders necessary to maintain balanced well being. Like a society with no law and order, rules help navigate what works and what doesn’t work, keeping our life in order.
We’re all given the same chance to find authentic happiness. Read more about the benefits of authenticity in my blog post, Authenticity Unlocks Freedom. Our spirit depends on how we cultivate the situations we find ourselves in. How we navigate through unwanted positions and grow to a place where our mind and actions can be free the way we wish. If you want to be happy, that is the only ingredient necessary to succeed. Work with that. Mold this mindset into what you do. Mix this attitude with each and every action you take. You are the controller of your life. Your growth is your power. Find the light, water your soil. Set yourself free.
