Be the weed growing through the cracks in the cement, beautiful – because it doesn’t know it’s not supposed to grow there.
from Instructions for a Bad Day
I don’t remember where I encountered this quote but it really stuck with me. I think I’m the typical person who tends to see weeds as something undesirable. I curse at them in my garden and interloping onto my lawn.
This quote however, casts weeds into a different light and gives them the qualities of resilience and tenacity which we prize in ourselves and applaud in others.
So today my message is a very simple one. Embrace your inner weed – for not only are they tough little survivers, but nature provided them with a beauty of their own.
