Most of us will wake up today with a burden we have been carrying around full of heaviness. These little pieces of anger, sadness, depression, anxiety, unworthiness, self-loathing, self- criticism, and negativity move in unannounced and work tirelessly to set us up for failure.
I am reminded today of the lesson a sunflower teaches… they are made to grow roots deep and wide, to survive strong winds, and always put their face to the light.
Today I am choosing to put my face to the sun, ground my feet, and be truly grateful for the strength I am “growing.”
Be a sunflower today
