The graceful flower

I clicked this picture on a walk. Sometimes, we don’t even notice how camouflaged messages can be when they come from things that are around us. The creeper was unkempt, the patches on the wall needed some work and yet this flower blended with its surrounding. Effortlessly. Being graceful came naturally to this one.

Extrapolating this to life, all of us are capable of blending with our surroundings and being who we are. There are situations we feel otherwise. However, we can always be a part of the group we don’t belong to and still find a way to shine. And stand for ourselves. It’s in our minds and only we can deal with situations that don’t let us be who we are. So, don’t put it on your surroundings but take that step to accept the reality and shine on.



Today’s picture post is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge – Graceful.

    Loved the picture and the thought behind it…we ought to blossom where we are placed by our destiny and merge into our surroundings..,a lesson my mother gave me before I got married.

    Its beautiful – the photo and the thought. When I see weeds on my walk way which are perfectly purple and bright, I always think about the perfection sought by the flower even if there is no one to look at.

  10. Wiow. This is a brilliant analogy.
