Inner Strength

When is a flower more than just a lovely flower? When you look at it from a deeper, more symbolic point of view. The two beautiful blooms featured here simply have more to them than wispy petals. They both symbolized strength to me as I sat and reflected on them. The cactus bloom seems to glow with an inner fire. A desire to survive despite the fact that it lives under the harshest of conditions. The soft petals in the rain exemplify that no matter how heavy the weight we may bear, we will bend but we will not break. Both also demonstrate that while beautiful and delicate on the outside, there is always something much more profound under the surface. There are times in life when we all need a little help, some encouragement to keep going. If you take the time to look around, you never know where you may find that inspiration.
