Bloom where you are planted, Shine wherever you are

I’ve been told I’m just a common weed, a nuisance. But what do they know?

I’m just an ordinary invisible clover in a field of millions.

\

Everyone thinks I am just something to be picked to tickle their friends with. They don’t know the real me.

\

And me? I am just a hidden mass of leaves in sea of green…no one ever notices me or even knows what or who I am.

\

\

But what if someone took the time to notice.

To really see us.

\

To pay tribute to the queen of clovers in her purple head dress adorned with jewels around her collar and surrounded by her royal court with their own gems and diamonds on display in the glory of the sun?

\

\

To look closely enough to see the amazing display of transparent beauty we wear on a dewy morning.

\

\

To understand the simplicity of quiet, still reflection that we live by every day.

\

\

What if they realized what a privilege it is to be among our pristine beauty?

\

\

I wonder if they would be happier?
More grateful…
Changed somehow…

But even if we are forever overlooked, we will still be.

We will still bloom.

We will still shine.

Because who we are is not dependent on the validation, or attention of others. And in the end if we are never noticed, it does not change our purpose or calling.

Bloom where you are planted.

Shine where you are.
