Last night, while working on a blog post about support for Fitness Collaborative, I came across this quote:
When you grow and rise above the masses, you will always become a target. Just as the flower grows above the grass, it becomes a target for the nourishment of the rays of sunshine, it also becomes a target to be cut down.
No matter how honorable, diligent or hard working we are, as we work towards our goals, whatever they may be, we may encounter naysayers, negative Nancy’s and the like. But by surrounding yourself by flowers you will be more resilient when these people try to cut you down – reaching goals is much easier with strong flowers surrounding you.
I’ve been very fortunate in my life – I have a garden full of tall flowers supporting me. They are always there to lift me up when something tries to cut me down.
To my husband, children, family and the wonderful people I’ve met through this blog – I love you! Thank you for your support!
Who are your flowers?
Have you told them lately how much you love them? How much you appreciate them?
