The little flower

She was a happy flower, with sweet a fragrance and pleasant a smile

that was left to be alone and sad at once.

The world as she knew changed.

After days of agony and pain ,this flower chose to survive.

She with all her might, tried to stand up and smile again

at the world she has left with her.

Her friend, the bright sun stood a witness to all this,

and kept assuring the little flower that he is always there.

The presence of the sun, makes the little flower glow.

Like a phoenix, the little flower rose from her own ashes,

found her inner true glow.

The flower thanked her friend. She spread her petals out with more joy;

now to be touched and brightened by her friend's presence.

She never realized until then, that the sun who stood by her

was her true soul mate.

Let us all be gold diggers!!

Yes. Let us all be gold diggers.

When you are digging for gold, tons of dirt might come your way. Most of us crib about all that dirt and come out all frustrated.
For one ounce of gold, you may have to move tons of dirt. We loose focus, and we concentrate on all that dirt. We start pondering on questions like;How much dirt we have
have been facing and how much more we have to face, What kind of dirt? Why is all that dirt there? etc

The point is, we are there is the first place looking for GOLD. And when you are digging, you don't go looking for dirt, you go looking for Gold.

We can apply this thumb rule is life, in case of relationships.

We start off in a relationship looking for the gold, the beauty of the other person. We see small dirt here and there that leads us to more inner quality and beauty of the other. But we get stuck.
We forget that we are gold diggers and become the dirt pickers. How sad! The person is one and the same. Its our view that has changed.

So lets accept and appreciate what ever gold/beauty that is in a person, in an event, in life as a whole; than complain and crib about all that is not there.

Lets be gold diggers. :)
