Plant yourself where you will flourish and watch yourself thrive.
The best way we can grow is to lay the best foundation we can for ourselves. One that nurtures and nourishes. Where we learn and grow. This is how we will thrive.
When we stand in a place of negativity or one that goes against our core values, we weaken ourselves. We cannot grow because we are not in an area of enrichment.
Positivity and alignment to our purpose is a fertile ground where we cannot help but shine. When we live authentically, we grow in wisdom, love and joy.
We are all meant to grow and shine. Sometimes, the soil is hard, but just like flowers, not every place provides the right area for our growth. Some types of people will flourish in one area where we will not. This is because that is their task in life. They grow even where it is hard and difficult because that is in alignment with their purpose.
Like a beautiful collection of flowers, our friends, colleagues, and peers only enhance our capabilities and help us shine. Surround yourself with flowers and not weeds. In other words, surround yourself with people who will add value to you.
Weeds choke out flowers and kill that which is around them. They overtake everything when not removed. So too, can negativity seep in and defeat you when you aren’t paying attention.
People who are miserable or living life against their purpose will try to pull you into their environment. Misery loves company, and they don’t want to be alone. Please don’t allow yourself to be fooled by their flashy and deceiving ways. Some weeds have bright flowers, but they still kill that which is around them.
Flowers require water and sunlight to grow. You need knowledge and love to flourish. Continue growing and tending to your growth, not only in knowledge but also spiritually.
All aspects of ourselves require tending. The physical, mental and spiritual must all be fed. When we feed and nourish each, we can begin living authentically. It is only then that we can truly be aligned and live our purpose to its fullest.
You were meant to shine. Take care of yourself, and make sure to plant yourself where you will flourish.
