Flowers Are A Lesson In Patience

trust the process flower metaphor

Flowers are a lesson in patience. You ever think about how patient flowers are?

They’re in the dirt, getting rained on, and they’re like, “It’s cool. My time will come.”

And then boom… they bloom!

Flowers get it. You gotta believe in your worth and trust the process.

Flowers are nature’s proof that the best things in life come to those who don’t try to control the uncontrollable.

Flowers don’t freak out and rush to unfurl their petals just to keep up with the Joneses’ tulips.

No, they lounge confidently in their earthy beds …knowing they will eventually bloom.

Flowers offer a convincing lesson in the power of patience… teaching by example rather than lecture.

So consider this your reminder about flowers and patience ….

  • Recognize that in the grand scheme of things….you are a perennial ….always ready to make a comeback… no matter how long the winter.
  • Have the gumption to say, “This is not how my story ends,” and to know this to be true, wholeheartedly.
  • Stand firmly in the realm of possibility …and refuse to budge until your miracle arrives.

And so I encourage you to embrace the wait, the growth, and the eventual triumph… because honestly… the best things in life aren’t just handed to you… they’re patiently grown.

In the end… every flower that ever bloomed …had to go through a whole lot of dirt to get there.

Your journey’s no different. It’s messy and frustrating at times. But when you get to the other side – it will be beautiful. 🌼🌸🌺
