A life lesson from a plant.
For four years this plant stood in the pot without a single flower. Every time I passed it, I wondered why it wasn't blooming. I tried everything --fetiliser, water sunlight. But it stood stubbornly, with not a single flower.
Whenever my mother came to visit, I'd tell her I should probably uproot it as it never flowered. My mother said 'Let it be--it can exist just as a green plant to add some greenery in your garden.'
So I let it remain.
Last week it bloome ! And ever since then it has been giving me a magnificent flower. Every single day. How wonderful is that!
Many a time we get imaptient when we take time to achieve things. We get disappointed when the work we're putting in does not seem to be yielding results. But underneath, deep down there's a lot happening which we aren't aware of.
This plant was growing strong roots, and preparing for the right moment to flower.
Similarly the adversities and the difficult times are preparing us for something better. It's preparing us to BLOOM so we can take out place in the sun!
