Hope is a green blade of grass in a hot desert
Resilience is a daisy blooming in the tread of Fate’s footpath
Faith is absorbing every bit of moisture
Life is to keep growing
But Love is the unseen root…
– Kim Koning –
This is a picture I took on my Sony Cybershot this morning. It is a macro-focus of two tiny, perfectly intact miniture daisies that were in my footpath as I walked to work. It hit me then that truly is what Resilience is. It is an enduring hardiness and toughness even though you may be vulnerable to the pull of fate and circumstance. It is about a miniture creation perfect and whole that lies in the footpath of all creatures.
Resilience is a character facet that will see one through many turmoils in life.
How often do you feel as vulnerable as those daisies?
How often do you feel as if you are in the footpath of life just waiting for the tread of fate to crush you?
Yet if you are resilient like these two daisies, you will continue blooming and you will live the life you are meant to live no matter how short.
As I wrote a couple of days ago, I have started Project 365/2011 being inspired by the Shutter Sisters. It is amazing what sights you find when you are looking for them. I am on Day 2 so far, so 363 days left. Follow my posts on my flickr and my tumblr accounts.
May you also be inspired to seek out images that inspire you.
