I am a Weed

I am a Weed, the new strength anthem!!

Sometimes do you ever just feel like a weed? Not the “party” weed but just the weeds stuck insignificant in the middle of nowhere. I think we all have those moments. I know I do. 

But then on my walk this morning I realize something very miraculous about a weed stuck in a crack surrounded by concrete. My reality was that it survived! It’s thriving! It’s fighting to be in a place it’s not supposed to be. And goodness knows it would be so much easier to be on the other side of the concrete path with all the grass and the nutrient rich soil and the sunshine and no one wanting to stomp on the weed. But it has chosen a path and it will need to be strong and resilient and fight its way by crawling up and flourishing. 

Wow, that kind of feels like life.  I know I have to be strong and have amazing moments to work hard to be on my chosen path. Yes, there is another path that is way easier but this one feeds my soul. This one I just know I am supposed to be on.  This one is the place for me to push my way thru and make a happy place. I think I’m OK with being a weed today! 

I guess it’s all in the way you look at it.
