Some of the most beautiful things happen when you need it the most 🌻// This morning I locked my keys in my car. Purse, wallet, lunch, extra clothes, and my water bottle all locked up. I was so upset kicking and screaming at my car, but more so at myself for being so exhausted and careless to realize my keys were in the car as I hit the lock button on the door and slammed it shut. Needless to say it had been a rough week and certainly a rough morning. All the while my car was locked up I had intrusive thoughts about why it happened or why I've been so exhausted and unhappy...but then as we were harvesting zucchini and cucumbers, we stopped to grab some sunflowers for the farm stand...and there, there was this one. My heart swelled as I held it in my hands. I honestly walked around with it for a little while. Such a simple thing... I was admiring the geometry in the formation of the seeds; how a single flower could grow 5 feet tall and not topple over.
The young sunflower follows the sun. Each and every day it's blossom moves with the sun. Even on a cloudy day the sunflower still feels the warmth of the sun and begins to move slowly. It does this each and every day until it is mature. Once mature the sunflower faces east so that it may watch the sun rise as it begins to bear its seeds. Today this spoke to me. Why was I so worried and frustrated by all these things and all these things I couldn't control or change... the sun was out; it was a beautiful day; I have a job that allows me to be outside and to observe nature and the beautiful things and moments it produces; I am healthy; I am not hungry; I am not homeless; I am young and I have many more years to watch the sun rise...
Sometimes, some of the most beautiful things happen when you need it the most #sunflower#sunflowers#flowers#sunshine#naturelovers#mentalhealthmatters#breathe#behappy#now
