The White Dandelion

What a field of dandelions gone to seed taught me.....
The life cycle of a dandelion is that a leaf grows, then a bud, then a pretty yellow flower grows and then turns white which means it's seed ready to be carried by the wind and planted then the plant dies once all the seeds are released.
The part that stood out to me in particular was the seeds ready to be carried by the wind to be planted.
You and I, every single one of us are like that white dandelion and we are planting seeds daily, everywhere we go, everyone we come in contact with we plant a seed, now unlike this plant which is considered a weed we decide what we plant....we can plant goodness, kindness, love, joy, patience, peace, abundance, gratefulness, thankfulness OR we can plant fear, doubt, anger, bitterness, resentment, discord, turmoil, hatred, jealousy to name just a few.
As I stared at the field of thousands of seeds ready to be spread I couldn't help but be overwhelmed with gratitude to those who have planted the seeds of kindness, unconditional love, patience and joy into my life and also be keenly aware of the ability I have to spread good seeds wherever I go!!
Friends, NEVER underestimate the power you have just by being you and by spreading good seeds wherever you go.
You DO have the ability to be the change wherever YOU are! You may never see what the seed grows into but how can you go wrong by spreading goodness and love wherever you are!!
Tough question to ask yourself maybe but....When you come around do people scatter or gather??
I am the first to admit I have A LOT of growing to do and yet when I come to the end of my life and all the seeds I have been given are spread my prayer is that people felt valued, accepted and loved unconditionally when they were around me and the good seeds I planted far outweighed the bad!!
Happy Monday friends!!
❤️You are loved!! ❤️
