Blooming Where You're Planted

I've received a lot of inspiration and encouragement from my Facebook friends lately. Recently, a high school friend posted: "Bloom where you are planted." What a simple, yet profound statement.

Often we dream of being replanted in gardens that may be greener than our own, thinking that a new flower bed will make all the difference.

While change can be good, even life-altering in a positive way, we must first start to bloom where we are planted. If we don't try here first, we will just carry our pesky challenges to the next backyard and struggle there as well.

Each of us have the potential to be as bright and bold as this pink zinnia bloom. The only question is whether we are willing to find the courage to embrace life's possibilities for blooming right in our own backyard.
