The beauty of flowers (& You)

I used to hate buying flowers,

I thought what’s the point, they’re expensive and they die in a week if that.

Rip off.

It wasn’t until I bought a rose for a girl that I realised how much that week of beauty can make.

The smile, the excitement, the joy… from a flower.

Amazing (kind of wish it didn’t take me 6 years to realise but hey ho)

But it also made me realise that if a flower can do that in a week, imagine the effect that you have when you enter someone’s life.

The beauty you bring.
The joy
The happiness.

Yes flowers die, yes they’re expensive.

But we die too.
And life is expensive.

Its everything that happens in between.

Life is beautiful.
And so is the effect you have on people in your life.

We are all flowers.

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers

So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

Veronica Shoffstall

No one is responsible for your happiness,
Nobody
And your not responsible for anyone else’s

No one is responsible for your growth
No one is responsible for your career
No one is responsible for the actions you take, or dont take

Stop waiting for other people to solve your problems,
Stop blaming other people,

Just get out there and tend to your garden and watch what happens

It’s all on you.
