The Weed

Weed -noun
1.  a valueless plant growing wild; 2. an undesireable or troublesome plant; 3. a wretched or useless animal


Do you ever feel like a weed?  Valueless?  Undesireable or troublesome?  Wretched or useless?

I think we've all felt like this at one time or another.  Sometimes we feel like the ugly among the beautiful people ~ misfit vegetation in the perfectly manicured lawn.

Look deep.  Comb through the blades of grass you wish you were, the conformed image you think is expected of you.

Can you see your imperfections among the flawlessness you perceive around you?  You feel invisible, but yet, there you are.  The weed.  The rogue plant among a sea of sameness.  The different one.  Look closely...

...for the rogue, too, can be beautiful.
