I love the 'Life Lessons' flowers give us. You might recall my series with Daffodils and other flowers last spring. My goal in the near future is to write a book on Life Lessons from Flowers. :)
However, in looking at these emerging buds, I'm reminded how much growth is still inside of us. Sometimes we feel stagnant, but there's so much inside of us to spring forth. Flowers show off their greatest beauty and their wonderful personalities once they bloom. We can stay inside our cocoons, neatly tucked away, and in control, or take a risk, come forth, and be all we were intended to be. When we decide to graduate, we leave the 'people pleasing' behind and show off our real colors!
