Tenacity

I was pulling weeds one day when, at the back of one pot, I saw this scraggly little thing. I pulled it, thinking it was another weed but, lo and behold, it was a scrawny little marigold plant. Now, I hadn’t planted a marigold in that particular spot, it must have grown from a seed. I felt bad, so I quickly replanted it, hoping it would grow, knowing the odds were not in its favour. 

Well, it’s still al little scraggly, and the flower isn’t perfect, but it persevered.    

I think there’s a something in this for all of us. Life is tough, but so are we. If we have the tenacity to push through our day to day life challenges, if we just hang on, we too will persevere. 

May the odds be ever in your favour.
