Bud? or Full Blossom?
Tuesday, February 09, 2010
And then the day came, when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
- Anais Nin, Danish diarist
I liked this quote which was today's Healthy Reflection. Buds are important...they are the beginning, the inception of the flower and the fruit. Without the bud you would never have the blossom or the fruit. However, if the bud never opens and matures it will eventually die, drop off and be gone.
Our lives are similar to this. There can be potential (the bud) but if the potential never matures into full flower we lose the joy of fulfillment. We lose the potential of success in an endeavor which is important to us.
You and I can do whatever you or I set our minds to do. We can go as far as we would like to if we will only take the chance. Maybe its time to take a chance.
