(Literally though- can you see the pansies smiling back?)
Whenever I look at flowers they make me pause and reflect for a moment.
I haven’t done much for them—why are they blooming, exuding happiness and putting their best face forward for no apparent reason? (At first I passed it off as a mechanism to attract bees ‘n’ stuff—but the internet says bees can’t see colors like reds and pinks very well, so..that’s that!😅).
When it comes to nature which is so ‘alive’, dynamic and completely independent of human existence, I let a lot of the phenomena transcend human logic.
Back to smiling flowers—irrespective of the onlooker’s expression, weather or location (like atop a lonely peak or valley)—they spread fragrance and make the world a happier place!🌸
Here lies the joy of freedom from so many negative emotions.
Below are some uplifting thoughts I came across recently that brought deep meaning and helped me focus on the takeaway.
