Attitude is everything. Motivational thought

    Two seeds lay side by side in the fertile spring soil. The first seed said, “I want to grow. I want to send my roots deep into the soil under me, and send my sprouts through the earth’s layer above me. I want to open my tender buds to announce the arrival of spring.

      I want to feel the warmth of the sun on my face and the blessing of the morning dew on my petals.” And so she grew. The second seed said, “I am afraid. If I send my roots into the ground below, I don’t know what I will face in the dark.

        If I push my  way  through the  hard soil above  me I may  damage my delicate sprouts. If I open my little buds a snail may eat them. If I open my blossoms, a small child may pull me from the ground. No. It is better for me to wait until it is safe.” She waited and waited. A yard hen scratching around in the early spring for food found the waiting seed and promptly ate it.
