I was taking a walk on my break today and noticed that my favorite flower was laying on the ground on the pathway. A lady in front of me was completely oblivious and stepped on it as she walked by, but I stopped to pick it up. I still thought it was beautiful even though it had been walked on and had seen better days. The point is, in life, there will be people that will come along and will fail to notice you for your beauty. You will cross paths, and they will be but a fleeting image on your journey, and that is it. You’ll be left questioning your self worth and value.
On the other hand, there will be those who will be immediately drawn to you and able to appreciate all that you are. — Self worth: a concept that is often allowed to be determined by those who walk all over us, hindering our ability to keep the faith that someone out there is going to come along and be so unbelievably captivated our beauty.
The same goes for you, in turn. How many beautiful things have you missed out on by failing to notice them? How many people have you not been drawn to, but after you continued on your own path turned around to find that someone else was completely infatuated with the person?
Are you a person that sees a flower on the ground and sees something beautiful, or someone that just sees a wilted flower on the ground and keeps on walking? It goes both ways. You can look at something and see mediocrity, or you can recognize it as extraordinary in all its ways. You can also look at the same exact thing as someone else but feel completely different about it. So why do we take it so personally when people don’t see how amazing we are? Yeah, it hurts, but that person just doesn’t cherish you the way that the person that is meant to will. That person has to fail at appreciating you to give another person the opportunity to be walking along on their own path that crosses yours, and is so inevitably drawn to you that they have to stop dead in their tracks to admire all that you are.
Someone can overlook your worth, but only to allow someone else the opportunity to cross your path and see nothing but beauty.
How do you look at things in life? How do people look at you?
