You’ve heard the expression: “April showers bring May flowers.” Certainly peers and families living with and coping with mental illnesses have had their share of showers. Trials, hardships and illnesses can be compared to showers. Without any rain showers, nothing would grow. Beautiful flowers need water which is an essential element for life.
As family and peers enduring and persevering in our share of showers and raining trials or circumstances, we notice personal positive growth over time. Many of us, given the choice, would choose a sunny day over a rainy day. However, living here in Florida, we know all too well what happens with too much sun. Plants, trees and flowers wither and die without enough water.
All of us can appreciate the beauty of a flower garden. Try viewing your personal rainy season as an opportunity to grow some flowers. Beautiful positive qualities such as: love, patience, perseverance, forgiveness and compassion can be cultivated. Often times these positive character traits are displayed during times of crises and storm. Don’t let a rainy season distract you from the positive growth that can occur from successfully enduring health trials and/or challenging circumstances.
By keeping a positive attitude, being patient, compassionate and forgiving you will enjoy and be grateful for the fragrance of your own beautiful floral bouquet.
Share your bouquet with others! May is Mental Health Awareness Month! Why not share a flower or two: a positive quality or enlightening experience with someone enduring a rainy season. Your experience and growth of inner wisdom can help make May a bunch of flowers!
