You can learn a lot from a Tulip!

A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone.
It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose.
It doesn’t have to. It is different.
And there’s room in the garden for every flower.
You didn’t have to struggle to make your face
different than anyone else’s on earth.
It just is.
You are unique because
you were created that way.
Look at little children in kindergarten.
They’re all different without trying to be.
As long as they’re unselfconsciously being themselves,
they can’t help but shine.
It’s only later,
when children are taught to compete,
to strive to be better than others,
that their natural light becomes distorted.”
~~ Marianne Williamson

Grateful for all of the gorgeous 
pink and purple clumps of tulips 
I have growing right now in my yard!
It makes me happy every time I see a glimpse of them when I'm outside!
SO grateful
I took a moment to snap some photos of my beautiful tulips because as of this moment they are fading and dying and once they're gone, we won't be able to enjoy their beauty again until next Spring!

Flowers teach you a lot about life...
They remind us that we're all unique and beautiful in our own wonderful way!
They also remind to pause and take time to savor simple moments in life, because if you think
 "I'll enjoy that tomorrow", 
many times tomorrow the moment is gone!

Happy Spring!
I hope you are able to notice and cherish the beauty
of each budding flower,
each budding tree and
 notice all of the creeping, crawling things as well!
