A wonderful reminder that wherever you are in your life, you are perfectly alright as you are. This can be hard to accept for those who lean towards perfectionist tendencies, always striving for more but never feeling they've truly achieved anything quite good enough. You are where you are meant to be. Trust the process ❤️ "When we plant a rose seed in the earth we notice that it is small, but we do not criticise it as “rootless” and “stemless.” We treat it as a seed, giving it the water and nourishment required of a seed. When it first shoots out of the earth, we don’t condemn it as “immature” and “underdeveloped”; nor do we criticise the buds for not being open when they appear. We stand in wonder at the process taking place and give the plant the care that it needs at each stage of its growth. The rose is a rose from the time it is a seed until the time that it dies. Within it, at all times, it contains its whole potential. It seems to be constantly in the process of change; yet, at each state, at each moment, it is perfectly alright as it is."
