Wonder: Just bloom

“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.” ~Zen Shen

Imagine if we could take this cue from flowers – just let ourselves grow and glow without caring how we measure up to others. The truth is we won’t ever measure up to others and they won’t measure up to us. We all have such unique gifts and talents to offer. The way we experience life is unlike the experience of anyone else, and that makes our perspective special in every way. Revel in that and just bloom.
