A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.
The other day, while scrolling through Pinterest in an attempt to pass the time on the train to work, I found myself reading through the corny text pictures that always pop up as suggested for me. I was browsing rather absentmindedly until I came across one that really stuck with me. It read: a flower doesn't compete with other flowers, i t just blooms. I immediately thought of all the times I've compared myself to and attempted to compete with others and felt silly for ever doing that. This corny text picture turned into a new mantra for me. Why do I spend so much time trying to be better than other people when everyone can be great on their own? As soon as I began thinking more deeply about this quote, I was humbled.
We all want to stand out and make our mark in this world, yet, for some unknown reason, we try to conform to that which the world declares as perfection. Yet, if studied, this perfection changes over time, much like fashion trends do. So why try to fit the mold of something that will soon change? We can try to make ourselves fit an array of ever-changing qualities, from our style, our passion, our relationships, our careers, our bodies, our hair styles, you name it and we will try to obtain it. We often want what another has, and try to compete, or force, or become greedy without realizing what we already have within ourselves. Sometimes the simplest things in life speak volumes, much like this quote by an anonymous writer:.
