Be the Azalea Bush

The most beautiful things can grow in the worst places. We were driving through town today to get new batteries for the fourwheelers. We were going through a not so good side of town when I noticed a beautiful azalea Bush growing next to what use to be a mobile home. There was a lot of trash littered around it, but there it grew, so pretty. It got me thinking of circumstances about people saying they “can’t” because they didn’t come from much. They say they don’t have the same opportunities as others, or they come from a bad place so that’s where they’ll end up. I will say it again….. the most beautiful things can grow in the worst places. Give yourself credit and set an example. Show your beauty to the world! That azalea bush, growing amongst all the mess, stands out. It helps you to not focus on the bad, but notice the good. Don’t let a bad area in your life, bad circumstances, or even a bad neighborhood stop you from shining and being who you were made to be. Grow from the struggle! Grow from the pain! Grow from the darkness! Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t!
