Today I make an arrangement for you with flowers from my home country. The striking colors of the flowering tulip bulbs are a typical sight in The Netherlands during the spring season. The bright red, pink and yellow colors are overwhelmingly beautiful and are a must-see, or should we say, a must experience!
Blooming Dutch tulips
Have a beautiful week my friendly flower friends.
Let flowers inspire you!
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.”
