Do you know this quote ‘by’ Kermit the Frog, “It’s not easy being green”?. It’s part of a song about how he feels he is so ordinary, undervalued and overlooked by being green. That he blends in with so many ordinary things.
“It’s not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over
‘Cause you’re not standing out
Like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky”Joe Raposo, 1970
Along the way he realizes that instead of changing who he is and finding the negative around him, he sees the positive and becomes content, if not happy, with what he is and has.
Be satisfied with who you are, take care of yourself first. Trust your intuition. Cherish your soul. Sow your seeds and water them, take care of them and don’t hide in the shade. Find the positive and see the beauty in everything you do. Then you will grow, bloom and blossom.
#019 Water your roots, so your soul can blossom.
