Being able to adjust to a situation and to people around you is a great quality! In fact, Darwin’s theory of “the survival of the fittest” has been revised to “survival of the most adjustable.” However, don’t adjust so much to situations and people that you lose who you are and eventually end up being dominated by forces taking advantage of your accommodative nature.
Our weaknesses are our strengths and our strengths are our weaknesses. Impatient people are often very efficient, efficiency often also indicates impatience. Lazy people are often very patient, but patient people can be lazy. Sensitive people have a lot of empathy, but people with a lot of empathy sometimes need comfort more than the people they are having empathy for. And so it goes on an on…
And of course this goes for our physical appearance too. Imagine if nobody felt the need to sweat away hours in a gym to obtain the perfect swimwear body. Imagine if we all just came to the beach like we were. Wouldn’t we all breathe a sigh of relief? The truth is, people who actually have the guts to do that, to admit their “imperfection” and just shrug their shoulders at it are often the ones who are perceived as being “perfect”. We love such people because they make us feel good about ourselves, they give us courage to shrug our own shoulders and meet the world as we are.
Don’t try to hide your “flaws”, make them your strengths instead. A weakness is just a strength in disguise. Be like the Lotus flower in the photo, let your “imperfections” become the trademark of your individuality, what makes you uniquely you. 😊😊
Are you lonely or have you bloomed?
Will there grow flowers where you’ve walked?
Are you brave or are you lost?
Will you stay quiet or will you talk?
Into a sky or out to sea,
Will your petals fly or will they fall?
When roads are empty,
When the world is asleep,
Will your colors fade or
Will you walk on ?
The world is continually evolving and going through cycles. We need to align ourselves with the rhythm of nature. If we do, the future can be an exciting time for new beginnings and growth. We need to pay close attention to what is going on around us and how it affects us, we might need to reassemble and rearrange our plans moving forward. Don’t worry, if we do, it will all work out for the best.
A rose is certainly beautiful, no one can deny that, but is it interesting ?
I say, give me a Snowdrop any day, forcing its little head up right through the frost, singlehandedly defeating King Winter himself. Or a Dandelion, shooting up through a crack in the black concrete, bedazzling the face of a rather colorless piece of earth, winning over gray-suited commuters and lighthearted children alike.
