Once upon the time we had a beautiful, old rose in the garden.
She was one of those old breeds that British folks are very proud of. She had a fantastic fragrance. Her flowers were large and beautiful, she was proudly showing them off over other flowers in our garden.
Unfortunately, despite many efforts, after a few years, she completely dried up. Only the lignified dry stump remained. It was a few centimetres in circumference and looked like from a horror movie.
With a heartache, we decided that we need to cut this residue completely. The remainings from once a beautiful flower were quite large. I didn’t want to fight with the roots, so I only cut the woody stump on the ground.
A few years passed. And one spring we noticed that our jasmine had somehow beautifully bloomed flowers with various colours. We were about to report the miracle at the Vatican, but after careful examination, it turned out to be … our old-new rose.
She grew up again and quietly climbed towards the sun. First on the fence, then on the branches of bushes, so that, at the very top, she could flourish in all her glory.
How much can we learn from nature from this story?
Never give up! 🥀
Even if others write you off. ⚰️
Never give up. 🥀
Even if they cut your potential to the ground. 🔪
Never give up. 🥀
Do your thing 🚀
Take care of your work, carry out your plan. 🎢
Someday others will stand and look at you with open eyes. 😯
I still rub my eyes in amazement … 🙀
Love this story, Pit! Timely.
Thanks! I love just staring at this flower. For me, it’s not only a beautiful, esthetic experience but also an extra layer of this “don’t give up!” message 🙂
