A Dandy Reminder

H took me on a nice little adventure at Discovery Park today, and I found a dandelion just planted by itself in an expansive field of grass. Normally, dandelions are known as pesky little weeds, but at that moment, I saw beauty in it. Beauty because of the transformation it goes through from being a yellow flower to a fuzzy ball to the parachute-like seeds which get carried away by the wind and make their mark on where they land. It reminded me of all the learning and growth that has transformed me this past year. And as I look forward to another year (older), I need to use what I’ve learned and spread it as far and wide as I can while making an impact on those I encounter. Just like the dandelion.
