Do you ever wonder about purpose? About who you are and why you are here? I do.
One of the answers I keep coming across is that each of us in unique, and each of us has an inner drive to be alive and to flourish….to be the most, the best, the fullest me I can be….because nobody else in the Universe can do that. Nobody else was ever identical to me and nobody in the future ever will be.
I think it’s just the same for every living organism.
Look at the way this flower opens herself up to the sunlight and manifests herself to the world. See how beautiful she is. How delicate, fragile, yet gloriously strong to grow and develop to this fullness.
It seems so appropriate to choose to illustrate this idea with a flower – after all, isn’t that where the word “flourishing” came from?
Isn’t that at the very least one of my true purposes in Life – to flourish in my uniqueness. I think it’s yours too. You, too, are completely unique, and only you can share that uniqueness with the rest of us. I hope you do.
