Yesterday, I discovered this Crepe Myrtle growing out of a storm drain near a busy intersection

Not just growing, but blooming.

Never give up hope.

Keep reaching for the light.

  1. how wonderful
    to beautify

  2. Now that’s just too funny! πŸ™‚ ❀

  4. This is the Perfect Sentence to tell anyone who does not like their Jobs. “BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED”.

    Presently I am undergoing this hatred for my job, since I am an IT person at Head Office and now transferred to Marketing at Branch Office. I used to feel Nauseous and kept going for walk breaks frequently during the day.

    Then my friends helped me and told me that instead of fighting, why not accept life as it comes. Why not bloom where you are placed and show them management, that You Are Still The Best at Your Job.

    Thank You for sharing such a beautiful pic and wonderful heart calming words.

    • I’m glad this helped. I’ve struggled with job challenges, like steadily increasing paperwork, for years. Before I was able to cut back on my hours at the job, I did find acceptance to be helpful. It also helped to take one task at a time and think about what I still liked about the job. I hope some day you have something better. I bet you will!

  5. Visit my Blog. I have made a Image of your Crepe Myrtle along with your Words

  6. I love the pictures and your interpretation of them is brilliant! Great lesson!

  7. …and ‘consider the lilies of the field.’
