🌿✨ I was walking into this small Thai restaurant in Great Barrington, in front of it there was this beautiful plant, I stopped to take a picture of it, the shop owner saw me and as I walked in she greeted me with a big smile, the kind of smile that makes the eyes go really small, she asks me if I like the plant, I say "yes it is beautiful" she then goes behind the counter grabs a vase that had several little cuts of the plant and offers me one ❤ I say "it is so nice of you but I am flying back to the UK today, I am not sure she will make it" she says "you can always try" I ask the name of it, she goes on to tell me she got it as a gift when she opened her restaurant and it has grown so so much since "she must like it here a lot" she says. I accepted her gift, I travelled back talking to it all the way and doing my best for her to survive the 24 hour journey (that is how long it took from that restaurant to my place) and here she is ✨🍃 Growing roots and looking healthy 🙆♀️. So beautiful.
There are so many messages and learnings I take from this 🌱 here are a few: .
🌟What you do matters and makes a difference, to receive something from some one for no reason/agenda and expecting nothing in return is very humbling and reminds me to do the same❤
🌟Witnessing a plant go from very week to strong and healthy showed me we can always pick ourselves back up ⬆️, also that #lifeispowerful
and when taken care of it multiplies and also reminds me that the #universe
is self fulfilling, self adjusting, self healing, self aligning, so don't be affraid of the ups and downs 🙏✨
Feeling fortunate and thankful to receive such a nice gesture from a "strangel " 😇
Sincro-ironicly, this phrase was written in one of the yoga studios I went to in New York and it fits so well here: "Today be kind for no reason and for nothing in return." 🙏🌙
